    Default Ringworm-Yeast on breast??

    Since LO was born somtimes when I take a shower my right breast itches really bad. Tonight I was itching while showering and took a very close look at my nipple. On the areola there is what looks kind of like ringworm. Slightly raised red circle. Could this be a yeast or ringworm? If so, wouldn't it have manifested more than it is since LO is 8 months old like thrush or diaper rashes in LO? I mean I can't imagine it staying so small for so long. What do I do?

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but do you pump? I can get some really scary looking red rings around my areolas when I pump too long. Of course I have no idea what ring worm looks like, so it this could be way out there...

    I do not know much about thrush Heather but I would check dd mouth and if she looks good. Then I would look to see if the raised area on the areola matches to where dd latches. Maybe she has an awesome suction going on...KWIM. Otherwise, the itching alone, IMO, would make me call the dr if it gets to be a pain and have him/her look at it.

    I just know when my dd2 is on a nursing marathon I itch like made for a few days and my areola not my nipple will hurt like mad.
