I just got over some sort of infection caused by food poisoning and now have cc... I stopped taking antibiotics less than 1 week ago. This raised itchy bump has been coming at night in Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night and going away during the day.

I haven't seen my doctor because it was the weekend. It didnt come Sunday night and now Monday day here it is again this itchy patch. What could it be!

A: Need some photos to help

If you provided more details along with a photo I might be able to comment. Perhaps you have misplaced your query?

Q: Reason for Pain and Constant Discomfort in Breast?

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 10:42

August will be 2 years since I have had my breast augmentation. I chose silicone implants. Since then, my left breast has had painful sensations along with tingling, burning, itching, sharp pain in my nipple, and basically nonstop discomfort.

I have check with both my surgeon and general dr about this but neither seem to think it's a problem. I have had a mammogram/ultrasound done and both came back normal. I can't continue to live with this pain and constant worry about what could be wrong.

A: It is always a challenge treating pain

2 years of pain is not normal. A reevaluation to identify the root cause would help. If all else is normal, it is probable that your persisting symptom is from nerve injury. Implant removal does not reliably decrease pain. While you may consider the option of implant removal, there is no certainty in its effectiveness in managing intractable breast pain.
