Re: Dry nipple and small reddening of nipple


Hi Elorac66


Thanks for posting.


It’s difficult to tell from your description if you have an infection. If you have a breast care nurse you could give her a call to talk this through. Or you could make an appointment with the practice nurse at your GP surgery where they can take a look and assess for signs of infection.


Do call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.


Our new opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.


Best wishes




Breast Cancer Care Nurse

Dry nipple and small reddening of nipple

Had a mastectomy with implant reconstruction, skin and nipple sparing 6 days ago and nipple area feels dry and is slightly red. Could I have an infection.
