Re: Spots & scabs

Hi Robyn, sounds unpleasant, and I'm not surprised you are a bit worried . If you were my daughter I would have you back at the doctors double quick. No need to suffer if you can get help. There are lots of meds out there fir excema , it's just getting the right one for you. X

Re: Spots & scabs

Hi Robyn,


It's great that you went to the doctors when you spotted something was not quite right. It sucks that nothing prescribed to you hasn't worked. I think the additional symptoms you described deserve another trip to the doctors. Or perhaps you can get the Breast CancerCare nurse to get in contact you?


All the best!

Spots & scabs

Hi all,
I’m 18 years old. I’ve had a scabby, discharging, itchy nipple for about 10 months now, which was diagnosed as eczema at first. None of the 5 creams given to me have worked so far, so I’ve been back to the doctors about two weeks ago with a referral to the breast clinic (who still haven’t got back to me). My breast has now started to get red spots all over, & my nipple is more ulcerated than ever. Should I take another trip back to the doctors as I have no idea what this could be?
