September 14, 2015 2 min read

Breasts are quite simply a precious commodity to women. They serve so many purposes, from making us feel confident and feminine to serving as a source of life for our babies. But, just like moles, hairs and other annoying things that can be found on your face and body, they can also take form on your breasts. So if you have a question regarding your pair that you're too afraid to ask, find some of your answers here. breast acne 1. Nipple Hairs: They're ugly, they're annoying and they certainly don't make you feel feminine. Are you the only one who has these long , dark and sporadic nipple hairs? Definitely not. “Nipple hair is caused by hormones, just like chin hair that might suddenly appear,” says Doris Day, MD, who is a clinical associate professor of dermatology at New York University medical school. “It’s very common — I treat it almost every day." So what's the fix? You don't have to stare at them if you don't want to. You can tweeze them or even laser them off. 2. Chafing No one likes a painful, raw patch near their breasts, and a lot of women experience this due to their sports bras, since they don't fit properly. “Think of it like preventing a callus or blister on your foot,” says Dr. Day. “You want to protect the area from any repeated rubbing.” If you want to sooth the skin, make sure to cover the area in petroleum jelly, like Aquaphor. 3. Itching Everyone has an itch they need to scratch, but when it comes to your breasts, it never really feels like there's an appropriate time to do it. The itching could be brought on from a number of things, including friction or dry skin. Try moisturizing the area to alleviate the itch. “If both sides are itching, then I’m usually not worried,” says Dr. Streicher. However, if only one side is, schedule an appointment with your doctor. 4. Breakouts Do you have chest acne? Though it's certainly unsightly, it's not uncommon or cause for concern. But, before you try to treat it, you need to find out whether you have acne or folliculitis. “Folliculitis looks like puss-filled pimples and develops when the hair follicle becomes infected,” says Dr. Zeichner. Do you leave your sports bra on for too long? This could be causing it. Next time, take it off immediately and rinse to ensure you get rid of any bacteria build up. “Acne is caused by skin cells clogging pores, oil accumulation, bacteria, and inflammation,” says Dr. Zeichner. “So you have to consider all the causes.” To treat it, try a gentle exfoliator.
