pus came out of the top

but there's more underneath, and a hard bit, and clear pus coming out of that

it's not painful

it's just a pustule isn't it?

i have just replied on your other thread

an abcess needs treating, you oculd well need antibiotics.

have you been breastfeeding?

pussyabcess Sun 13-Sep-09 12:16:00

lulu thanks

no breastfeeding

you know what it's like -- lump, pus, "oh god what's this"

but feel reassured by posts

thanks

You need to see your GP asap, I do not know what this is but it would concern me. Please do not let embarrassment put you off visiting the GP.

thank you attila, I will

I am not that embarrassed but i am afraid

AttilaTheMeerkat Sun 13-Sep-09 15:06:12

That's fully understandable but do go along there anyway.

Could be an infected hair follicle.

Definitely get it seen by the GP as soon as you can.

pussyabcess:

Oh an abcess on your nipple isn't funny, not at all.

I hope you get it treated and it gets better.
