Quoting Nikki Woods4:" TMI but I get them on my bum- partially from sweat, partially from sitting in a chair 12 hrs a day. The doc always just tells me to keep it clean and dry. "
Quoting MyPurrrtyBabies:" Could be caused by sweat. What do you know about it? What to do to cure it?"I have had a couple of these. Do you have larger breasts? I'm pretty blessed in that area to say the least so that's why I ask. Sweat is a big culprit and the bacteria that seeps into your pores from them getting sweaty. The worst one I had that actually "popped" and bled like crazy was pretty large. It never got a "head" or open spot to it either. Anyways, try taking a hot bath and getting a wash rag and putting Epsom salt on the wash rag and putting it directly to the spot on your breast and leaning back to soak. This way the salt dissolves into the skin and the outside of the wash cloth is getting the hot water. I had to do this for a month or so with the worst one and one day I got out of the tub and looked at it and it just started oozing. Good luck tho. I know they can be uncomfortable and unsightly. I've also been told by doctors that always wearing underwire bras can have an effect as well. So when you are at home or sleeping, let those babies breathe with either a sports bra or none at all. Also, lastly....make sure your washing UNDER your breasts with plain ol' dial bar soap and never ever use any sort of lotion on the girls. Hope this helps.

Quoting MyPurrrtyBabies:" Its very tender right now, like its ready to pop and it has a head. and thanks!"
Quoting JenaL:" Your welcome get the aloe vera plant!"
Quoting Stl mama:" Cut it open with something sterile. I had one on the base of my head. It was freakin disgusting. I didn't have insurance. Use peroxide to clean it out."
Quoting MyPurrrtyBabies:" Me popping it/cutting it sounds scary( wahhh, yes I am a BIG baby ), but I am hoping it will burst on its own since its so tender and seriously looks like it ready to pop anytime now."
