One morning, I woke up and my nipple started burning
and swelling. I checked on them and they were blood red. They stopped burning
and the color is normal, but they are still huge! Is there anything I can do to
make them go back to normal?
Usually when something like
this happens, it’s a result of some sort of change to your cleansing routine or
what you wear. If you donned a new T-shirt before hitting the sack, your
nipples might be a little irritated by the rough cotton. If you’re using a new
body wash or if Mom switched laundry detergent brands, the chemicals in the
product might be causing your sensitive skin to react.
Don’t worry—your body will
recover, heal and be back to normal in no time. Rub some rich, fragrance-free
lotion of your boobs and toss on a soft bra and tee. You’ll be fine!
If the burning and swelling continues for longer than a day—and
you have changed into old clothes you’re
body did not react to before and you’ve cut out any new body products—you might
want to call your doc.
