Itchiness, stinging pain around areola, rashes, swelling, scabbing. Tried elomet cream. Permanent cure?

Hi, i experience itchiness and sometimes stinging pain around my areola . The skin around it occasionally swells like a rash like inflammation. Sometimes it is has a pearly white scab when dry. This has been on going for more a year. I am going through a menopause period now. Tried Elomet cream prescribed for up to 2 weeks with some relief but soon re-emerge again. Is there a more permanent solution to this problem? Thank you.

Welcome to HCM,
During this period due to lack of oestrogen, dryness, itching in areola may be there.
Chance of having fungal infection is there.
Get your breast get thoroughly examined gynaec to rule out any lump in the breast.
If everything is fine then nothing to worry and continue with cream.
