Hi I'm 17 years old and recently i have noticed that my nipples have been cracked and peeling. I peel the skin off and it burns and i cant touch them at all. Im not sure that this is cancer because of my age but i would really like to know what to do because i get regular periods am not sexually active and am not on birth control. Could someone help me?
Your nipples could be aggravated by exposure to irritants including , soap, detergents,lotions and maybe also wearing a new bras which could be irritating your skin.A visit to a dermatologist would be a good idea to find out if this is an allergic reaction or some sort of skin problem that needs to be treated .
It is very difficult to give you a precise answer concerning your problem,but in my opinion this is not a sign of breast cancer particularly because it's happening on both your nipples. For exact diagnosis,I would urge you to consult your doctor/dermatologist.
Take care and God Bless..
