Stress putting my body through hell? - October 26th 2012, 04:04 AM

So as it seems the most common cause of all my symptoms seems to be stress. I'm trying to deal with it, but even when I feel better for a while it still seems to act up more. My nipples and breasts get itchy as a mother fucker, want to just rip them off it won't stop. The doc gave me allergy pills for the little red itchy bug bite spot like reaction, but my nipples are still super itchy and I'm not at ALL comfortable telling him. I can't bring myself to say it and I refuse to take my bra off so he can see. I don't care how professional he's supposed to be.

It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

Hi Jess,

Maybe you can write it down and give him a written explanation of your symptoms.
It is definitely an awkward subject to bring up with a guy and I haven't talked to my doctor about certain things due to him being a male however if writing a note and bringing it in is an option for you, definitely see how that helps.
I am sorry I do not have any medical advice however I haven't really dealt with this and I do not always trust the internet for such things.
Take care and hopefully your stress level decreases enough and you get the proper care to help you with these things being caused by your stress.


"i don't care your intentions. I just want you to know my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go. At the end of the day...I can pick at the pain but I can't cut it away."

Writing it down is a good idea. Another thing could be to say something similar to "This is really embarrassing for me, but my breasts (or nipples) have been very itchy. I do not feel comfortable letting you see though. So can you make any suggestions?"

You could also call a pharmacy and ask what they recommend, as they will not know who you are :P I recommend trying lotion (unscented). Or even lotion made for breast-feeding as that is often stronger and better for such a sensitive area.

Try not to wear a bra as often, if possible. Also, be sure you are wearing a fitted bra so it won't chafe as badly.

Also, bad and GOOD stress can cause your body to react oddly. If this goes on for more than 3 months, I would suggest speaking to your doctor in depth about your symptoms. Keeping a journal on sleep and eating routine will help. You don't need to write down calories or anything, but the items and the times. How much isn't too important either. Just this way you might be able to catch if an item is causing you to have an allergic reaction.

Keep track of when the symptoms start and stop. Within 2 weeks, you will have enough to show a doctor and the doctor will hopefully be able to figure out SOMETHING to help. At the very least, they will be able to rule out allergens or changes in your habits.

Glad to hear you might have found the cause! I hope wrestling does help you to exert some of that stress.

Re: Stress putting my body through hell? - November 5th 2012, 10:06 AM

Oh dear, that sounds terrible! I suffer from eczema which is often brought on by stress, and (I'll join the embarrassment club) not even my nipples have been exempt from it - ick! It got very very bad at one point, and I should have really seen a doctor about it, but embarrassment got the better of me so I was a bit Lady Macguyver about solving it on my own.

You may be able to get some over-the-counter mild steroid creams which can ease the itching (and now I imagine there is some peeling or broken skin?), but I wouldn't recommend using this for more than about 3 days at a time. After that, covering them loosely with a gauze bandage will prevent rubbing against your bra or clothing. If you can, sleep topless.

If you start to notice any secretions of pus or blood, I would advise you to muster up some courage and see your doctor about it - the skin on the areola is sensitive, and I imagine could be quite easily scarred.


Dear You,
You can make it through this. The clouds will not last forever.
From Me.
