After your face, the skin on your breasts is quite literally the most front-and-center on your body — which makes it easy to obsess over any aberration. But just because you’re seeing strange hairs, chafing, pigment changes, bumps, or feeling a weird itch (you know the one), doesn’t mean you need to panic.
“Skin is skin, so if you can have a condition elsewhere on your body, you can have it on your breasts,” says Lauren Streicher
, MD, associate clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University medical school and author of Sex Rx
. “People have the idea that if it’s on the breasts, it’s automatically serious, but that’s not the case.”
So go ahead and invest in those plunging necklines, because these experts have quick and easy solutions to your biggest boob problems. (Not #bigboobproblems, though — that’s another story entirely.)
