I have dermatitis and my breasts can get tender sometimes (especially before and after period), and it looks sort of like a dermatitis infection. I have this cream that helps a lot, so I don't think it is anything serious. Is it possible to get dermatitis on breasts?
Yes, it is possible to get dermatitis over the breast.
How would you describe this rash over the breast?
The breast is usually covered and in most instances, the chest is a damp area. Fungal infections and dermatitic skin conditions may be prefer these areas. Dermatitic skin conditions are usually weeping and itchy. The itch scratch cycle may lead to excoriations eventually resulting to eczema.
This cream that you are using may be a corticosteroid cream .There is no single definite medical therapy for dermatitis. Corticosteroids have been used as a mainstay therapy for controlling flare ups of eczema or dermatitis.
Yes, I do feel around my breasts from time to time, and I haven't felt a lump. I'm 15 years old, and I have thought of breast cancer, but I think that is very minimal because I have a very good diet and it doesn't run in my family. Both breasts have a yellowish discharge sometimes, so that is why I am worried.
This sounds like an infection here. I suggest that you need to have this assessed by your internist. At this point, if the discharge is coming from the nipples , you may need to have a breast ultrasound done here.
Inform your parents or guardian about this. You may need oral antibiotics if the discharge is yellowish or greenish in color. A clear discharge may be due to inflammation.
