Red rash/ Inflamed growths on/around nipple.

Hello, I'm a 25 year old male in moderately good health. I've always had a minor problem with warts on my fingers and skin-fungus on my chest etc.

I thought I grew out most of the problems, but recently I noticed that after scrubbing my chest the skin around my nipples are red, there is also a mild itchiness to them. Also while I always had small bumps on my areola, they seem to have become more inflamed and numerous? I don't notice any pus although they're an off-brown in color.

My areola's themselves also seem very dry...it doesn't cause any discomfort though and I've noticed no cracking only dryness.

breast cancer.  Please do not put this off.  let us know what happens.
