  • Breast cancer? Please view

    I'm so scared. I joined the website just to ask this question. Where I currently am, it's winter. I have dry skin on my face, elbows, and my breasts. I read online that itchy nipples can be a sign of breast cancer. But that's all I have. No redness (until I itch it and itch it too hard), no swelling, no pain, nothing. I'm only 17 and I'm just very scared.... I felt my breasts and there isn't an "lumps". I know some of you may be thinking that I'm crazy because of dry skin but my mom's Aunt was diagnosed with it about 2 and a half years ago. Thoughts?

    ********ALSO, I have DD 36 cup size, and I'm 140 pounds. So I'm not terribly unhealthy. My mom said it's because my boobs are STILL growing (which I believe, they will grow often. And everyone in my family has huuuuge breasts.)

  • Hi Kyra

    It sounds to me like dermatitis which is caused by an allergic reaction to soaps and not enough moisture.

    Do you firstly drink a lot of water?

    I would go to a Chemist and speak to them about over the counter cream to treat dermatitis and see if that makes a difference.

    If not seek medical advice.

    • Kyra,

      Hi. A lot of people experience dry skin issues during the winter, which causes itching. Regular soap can further aggravate this condition. You can try switching to a milder soap like ivory. As crazy as it sounds, Summer's Eve body wash is great at combatting dry skin as well. Typically stores shelf it with feminine hygiene products, not with soaps. Also, applying lotion after showering helps.

      I understand your concern about breast cancer. There are no lumps or unusual feeling tissue so I suspect you need not get too worked up. If you are worried, perhaps a trip to the doctor would put your mind at ease.

        Welcome to the forum.
        Thank you both for replying! I normally use Dove soap, Dial, and I only used SE for my "down there", but now I will try that instead.

        - I normally drink only a little water a day, or not at all. Maybe, one to half a bottle of water a day.

        • Don't be too pessimistic. A simple allergy to breast cancer? Have a check up and there you will know the result.
