    Default Large pores on underside of breast with discharge?!

    OK, I've been contemplating posting this FOREVER and since I have googled and cant find ANYTHING maybe someone here has had this happen! On the underside of my left breast there's some pores (maybe 5 or 6) that are large and kind of open if that makes sense. If I press around it or sqeeze the area a white substance comes out. It's so strange and not to be gross but it's kind of stinky. And it always comes back. Is it just me?!

    I've never heard of such a thing. If I were you I think I would be heading to the doc.

    I have this too! Under my right breast though. My doctor said it was like a viral infection and he gave me antibiotics and this antibacterial soap stuff. It hasn't gone away though, I'm going back to the doc next month, I'll post what he says.

    I have these.......more than a few! My doctor sent me to a "breast specialist" (I guess that's the title) Anyway, she told me it comes from irritated sweat glands under the breasts. I noticed they have become less now that I shower as soon as I feel the least bit of sweat and I also put a SMALL amount of baby powder under both after I dry thorougly. Make sure you don't allow moisture to stay under there because the open pores get irritated. Not a good feeling.

    I have two pores under my left breast that have been like that for years. There is no smell and they do not feel weird at all. Actually the only reason I squeeze on them at all is just because of my slight OCD. And it is just a tiny bit of white, like a small whitehead on your nose or something. I always assumed it was just from having huge breasts and it is just sweaty under there most of the time! If the discharge is smelly I would get it checked out. Generally this is a sign of some sort of infection. HTH, at least to say you are not alone (which is what I like to know most of the time!)

    Luck to you!

    I've found that wearing a bra as often as possible, showering daily, and using baby/talcom powder seems to help significantly.

    I have this too, it comes and goes, but if I keep things super super clean and use baby powder, that seems to help. I also have them on the insides of my legs as well on occasion. I think I talked to my dr at one point, but she told me not to really worry. But, I would suggest seein a dr, just in case they have some better advice.

    I have had these under my breasts for a while now. I pick at them constantly. It is from sweat and having larger breasts. I just use powder and then if it gets really bad I use diaper cream or the cream that makes athletes foot go away, it really really works. But powder everyday will make them dry up atleast and then in the summer when you are more prone to sweat use a chaffing cream.

    Could it be boils?

    I have them, too- they are kinda like black heads. They are basically just inflamed/infected hair follicles from sweat/bacteria. Keep the area clean, maybe use an acne-type wash (a gentle one) and use (NON TALC) powder to keep dry.

    Try not to squeeze them though, I have a lot of scars there from doing that

    I also have this problem and also get boils in between my thighs. I have done my own expiramentation. I went to my local pharmacy and purchased "Hibiclens" It is an Antiseptic/Antimicrobial Skin Cleanser. It is expensive around $11 a bottle. I used it every day in the shower washing underneath my breasts and in between my legs and slowly they disapeared. Just to clear my mind, I stopped using it, and they have reappeared. The cleaner takes a while to get a good lather and is quite thin but it you keep working it, it will lather. I am interested if it will work for anyone else. If anyone decides to try it can you let me know? Thanks. Hope wel all find solutions. It is quite embarrassing.

    Ladies, this sounds like Hidradenitis Suppurativa also known as HS. There is a subforum on here for it. Do a google search for symptoms and if you're brave, pictures. The pictures can be VERY frightening but remember that not everyone has the extremes that are shown in pictures.
