Someone please help me. I am in total freakout mode here. For the past several weeks, or maybe months, I've lost count my left nipple has been crazy itchy and has gotten dry. The dry skin actually flakes off if I pick it, i'ts so dry. Anyway, last night I was doing work on my computer and mindlessly scratching my nipple because it was itchy (AGAIN). And then I noticed that it suddenly felt very sore, not like any other time. So when it was time for bed, I looked at it and almost passed out. There was a teeny tiny open sore (for lack of a better word) that was oozing clear fluid!! It wasn't the red, angry type of sore but looked more like a bump that had been scratched open if that makes sense. The fluid wasn't coming out of my nipple like discharge, but just out of this one spot.
I did notice before I got a shower yesterday that there was a tiny reddish bump in that same spot that wasn't normally there, but because I'm trying to rein in my HA, I tried to ignore and just hopped in the shower. Well now I'm worried that it was really something and that I accidentally scratched it open. I looked this morning and it looked almost normal and didn't seem to be oozing... but I put some lotion on it for the dry skin and I guess with the rubbing it started oozing again! OMG just writing this is sending me into a panic.
Is it possible for skin to ooze clear fluid if it's been scratched open? It seems odd to me, but I feel like I've had that happen with cuts before (though later on, after healing starts). Someone PLEASE HELP!
