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 have this all the time. As said already I believe its just dry nipples. I wear a bra all the time and when I do finally take it off that's when it starts to burn. I found the best solution. Im not sure if its back or whatever but it works great for me. I apply a moisturizing lip balm to them and it goes away. However dont use the medicated ones or mint ones cause they will defiantly make you tingle more. But yeah it works just great for me. Im 18 and hope this helps!

Sometimes this happens because your nipples are dry. This happens especially in the winter when your stay inside a lot because your furnace or heater will dry you out

Well I'm 14 and my boobs inside the nipple burns and I relize that before or after your period some freaky stuff is going to happen to your body also during your period. There is nothing wrong with that but if your really losing sleep about it talk to your doctor and make a plan for the next time something weird happens.
Best of luck!

I am having the same burning/stinging sensation in my nipples as we speak. I am 27 with no children, however I am on my period. I was told by my nurse friend that it is most commonly due to hormones in pregnant women, but it is sometimes seen in females during their period or during ovulation because of the serge of hormones. If it lasts more than a few days then it's time to see a doctor. This has happened to me quite a few times before and I have found that the best things to do are to either wear very loose, COTTON shirts without a bra, or to wear a bra that is tight fitting. Hope I put some minds at ease! Sorry I dont have much advice on how to make it stop though!! If I did then I wouldnt have even ventured to this thread in the first place! Lol

I'm 12 almost thirteen and I started my period at the end of sixth grade. And basically all day my nipples have been burning and I don't know why sometimes wen I press them it doesn't hurt as bad but other times it makes it feel worst.

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...
