Basically, I have a strange patch of dry-ish skin on my areola. It's been there for quite a while, maybe a year now? If my nipple is hard, the little area will also raise up too and it feels firm. It itches sometimes and oddly enough, the rest of my boob will itch too when that happens. It weeps infrequently but I'm not sure if that's due to the dry skin rubbing on my bra and falling off. I'm not breastfeeding and don't use any shower gels etc on this area.
Should I be concerned? I will see my doctor about this but wanted to ask here to see if anyone has an idea of what this is or if I should be worried.
