Hello! I'm a young woman on birth control (Combined pills) and I was on vacations until yesterday. The place I went to had really dry air, my nostrils are all dry and cracked and I've been having a bad case of acne, and my nipples are sensitive to the touch. Could this be caused by dry weather? I can feel also one swollen lymph node on the side of each breast, it just hurts if I touch it, my breasts themselves aren't sensitive/swollen. I'm betting this on allergies caused by deodorant or a cold I had while in there. Or could it be related to the sore nipples? The pain is getting better, yesterday I couldn't put a bra without it hurting and even without a bra the nipples frictioning against a shirt hurt.
My period will start in about eleven days. I've had protected sex (Used a condom, it didn't break, checked filling the condom with water. Also, I take the pills perfectly everyday). But the sore nipples started on the 25th. Could this be also part of PMS or travel-related stress? Thanks a lot for your attention.
