ask: Strange pain/burning in nipples.

By Anonymous
 
Rate This

It started last night where both of my nipples started to be really painful and almost with a burning sensation. I am 26, not pregnant (never have been). The nipples look perfectly fine with no discharge or swelling or anything. Today is started again in my right nipple. Can anyone give me some insight on what this might be or how to make it go away? Thanks.

I know this is a woman's page but my husband right chest started to burn inside and it burns when you touch it. It stared to hurt yesterday at night and he says he doesn't know why. He says it burns around the nipple. Does he have something or no...

Hi Anon

We cannot tell you what may be wrong. It could be nerve pain or an infection or something else. I would advise he see a doctor as soon as possible.

Hello! Just to say I'm glad I am not alone! Yesterday afternoon after I got out of my pool both of my nipple felt like it was burning , it kinda felt like a burning sensation on both breast!! Also I'm just 14 and started my period yesterday night. Now it kinda feel alright as I press it!! But overall in my conclusion if it happens again yOu should were a push up bra or a bra that is comfortable and then slightly press it against your arm or hands for a while and sit down while pressing because it my go away! That's what I did to stop the burning or something!!!!

Hi Anon

We cannot tell you what to do - you need an examination from a medical professional in order to figure out this burning. Please make an appointment as soon as you can so this pain can be relieved.

Hi Anon

When you say you stopped your cycle a couple of weeks ago, do you mean you went off birth control?
