Abstract

Eczema of the nipple and areola can occasionally develop in the breastfeeding patient and is associated with sore, burning, and painful areolae and nipples. Management includes elimination of any precipitating allergens and irritant and the judicious use of appropriate topical corticosteroid preparations. Patients must also be offered effective pain control and support. The proper diagnosis and management of eczema of the nipple and areola in breastfeeding patients will prevent premature and iatrogenic weaning.
