Suggest treatment for itchy large pimple on the aerola

I'm currently breastfeeding. I noticed there's a large pimple-like on my right aerola and it's very itchy. Nipple is not cracked. When I shower, my breast (area above my nipple) becomes very itchy when water touches it, and the skin becomes red. How can I stop the itch?

Hello,

Itchy large pimple is suggestive of a blocked gland. You can do a hot compress and apply a topical antiseptic cream like Neosporin H for relief. Do wash it off properly before the breast feeding.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal, OBGYN
