Thanks for your reply. I did see my doctor for breast matters and he told me they are normal but this dry discharge I'm having I realized this for few months now. Generally I do know I have very dry skin and I'm just guessing but I'm thinking maybe it's the cause of it.

Thank You,

Hi Melissa6666,

Welcome back.  Many things can be the cause of dry skin, typical dry skin, irritation from cloths, fungal infection, eczema.  But only your doctor can determine that.  You should check for any other symptoms, such as a lump or discharge these are signs of a more serious condition. You will need to see a doctor and explain all your symptoms.
