Thanks for posting your query.

Your friend has swollen, painful, itchy nipples. It is possible that he is having a superficial fungal infection now.

He may try using Clotrimazole ointment on the affected area twice daily for 7 to 10 days continuously. It should give him relief.

If the symptoms do not improve in 10days time, please ask him to be examined by a Dermatologist.

Hope this helps you.
