I am 17 years of age, and both my nipples have a strong burning feeling. Its not my boobs, they dont have any pain its right at my nipples. Should I be concerned?

So I've never done this before , and I hope my message gets threw.
I'm 23, sexually active with my 11month relationship and got off my period two weeks ago and I don't believe I should be starting it... anyways these last couple of days I've had this insane burning on my nipple ... my breasts have also seemed to feel and look swollen on the sides .. the burning is only on the nipple but my entire Ariola and my breast seem to feel a slight of pain as well ... it almost feel like my nipples are being pinched.. and sometimes the pain happens simultaneously with both nipples or one or the other.. I've tried ice this morning but that made it worst .. laying on my tummy works...
Any suggestions?

Hello Anonymous,

You may want to have an exam with your physician.

I'm off my period so it's not because I'm on it or about to be, also I'm not pregnant or have any chance of being pregnant , but my breasts feel normal although my nipples are acting strange. They feel as if they are burning and on fire or completely frozen , they keep getting hard and stinging very bad. Please help

Hello Anonymous,

Beside the burning, hardness and stinging, is there any redness or do they feel warm to the touch?

Please contact your gynecologist or primary care physician to set up an appointment. These symptoms must be evaluated by a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

An infection is one possible cause.

Let us know what your doctor says.

I have had this problem as well, when i wake up they hurt. It only hurts when i dont use a sports bra, when i put one on the pain is lessened. wearing a loose shirt without a bra hurts. any advice? thanks.

This actually happened to me too. I wasn't wearing a sports bra and I went to track and DIED. But anyways I think it has something to do with the movement and not being held well. It seems to hurt way worse when something warm like water (I was in the shower) touches it.

Hi Anon

Sounds like they are sensitive to friction. Best thing is to wear a sports bra as much as possible.

I'm 14 and this morning I was handing out fliers outside a grocery store and both my nipples started burning. When I got home I took my bra off and there wasn't anything wrong visually but when anything rubs against them it hurts more. I haven't been using new soaps, laundry detergent or lotions. HELP!

Hi Anon!

This may be a hormonal issue with you. If this burning does not end, see your doctor.

Best,
