A man in his 30s is suffering from papilla pain His right nipples are hurting
Q: I’m a man in his late 30s. It’s painful because of papillary pain. The left side is fine. My right nipples hurt. There is nothing that can be touched by the bruise. Symptoms are hard, stinging, and itchy. It stings just by rubbing your clothes or hands.
When the papilla is hard, press it with your fingernail once and it’s okay for a while. It’s not every day, but this problem often occurs. It’s about once or twice a week.
Which hospital should I go to? I’m a man. Should I see an obstetrics and gynecology doctor?
A: It seems highly likely that your skin has been inflamed, given that the nipples have stinging and itchy symptoms.
In the case of dermatitis (contact dermatitis) around the papilla, itching or stinging symptoms are usually accompanied. In severe cases, dead skin cells or sores may occur on the nipples.
Considering that there are only itchy and stinging symptoms and that the symptoms improve for a while if you press it hard with your fingernails, I don’t think it’s a typical skin inflammation symptom.
For accurate diagnosis and treatment, it would be better to visit dermatology or breast surgery rather than obstetrics and gynecology for examination.
The usual treatment for dermatitis around the papilla is as follows.
First of all, it is most important to keep your underwear out of contact with the nipples and rinds, followed by moisturizing your skin well after taking a shower. Then, applying steroid ointment prescribed by the hospital from time to time often improves skin symptoms.
Given that there is nothing wrong with the nipples and that you can’t touch bruises, it doesn’t seem likely to be feminine breast syndrome.
