Why is there soreness in my breasts and burning in my nipples ?

I ve been having soreness in both breasts for a month now. My left breast and nipple have gotten worse. Anytime my nipple contracts it burns plus i cant touch it w/o burning as well. There isnt any discharge. I m 33 years old not pregnant (tubes tied) 8 years ago had breast augmentation and a lift. What might be the cause of this and is there anything i can do for the burning?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

I'm a little concerned for you as this could mean some underlying infection , as this is a sign of inflammation of the breasts, tenderness and burning are very prominent signs

As you have already got breast implants in place , it is better to see the doctor immediately. For the pain you could take an analgesic.But this would not suffice, you may need a course of antibiotics and further evaluation .

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
