I'm a guy before anyone takes that title in the wrong context.
I've had a constant nipple erection for at least three weeks,
shirts are uncomfortable and my single nipple piercing is standing
at an awkward 45 degree angle and pointing through my clothing in
rather noticable ways all the fecking time. WTF is wrong is wrong with me and can anyone give
dietary tips to help me stop feeling like i'm a big breasted b*tch
I've had the piercing since my early teens and i'm in my mid twenties now, it's not
the piercing, and regarding the post below you, it's not an infection, I'm a very clean germophobe
. It's just... both of them. And really discomforting. I know i'm going to take alot of flak for this but it's getting pretty severely
If you are taking any medications check into the side effects of them. You would be suprised at the amount of them out there that have estrogen in
them (female hormone) and will actually cause breast increases in men....Just throwing that out there because it actually happened to me!

A quick scan on mens health sites suggest it may be a dermatitis condition developing of which there are lotions available from pharmacies however in
these instances, and as indicated above you must consult your GP first.
Have you recently changed your diet - ie; bodybuilding supplements etc - this is another cause.
I really appreciate the response, but it doesn't feel dermatological, I try to take good care
of my skin, it feels internal. I haven't taken any heavy medication in the last two years, if
it is an hormonal imballance , can anyone give me some ideas and advice on what I should cut out of my diet
and should include so I can look it up, a Doctor in my area isn't really an option right now.

Enlarged Mammary Glands
Or they could just be rubbed raw from a shirt, that happens to me sometimes. It hurts, but it goes away soon, Use a antibiotic cream, bandaid, and
forget about it. If it doesn't clear up soon, get checked out.
I realise it's a bit cowardly but I can't go to WebMD, I keep diagnosing myself with cancer,
ebola, the common flu, exotic forms of herpes and anything else they have to throw at me.
I've seen some fairly intelligent people on ATS and I was just hoping they would point me in the right direction.
(Hopefully not the direction my nipples are pointing at)

Honey, without you coming into the clinic I couldn't even begin to make a guess.
these things could be anything from exposure to a pesticide, allergic reaction to a laundry soap or more common fabric softener, or it could be
something very serious like the start of thyroid disease.
Have you looked into a free clinic where you live? maybe you could ask the county if they have a roving Nurse practitioner. In this day and age there
are alternatives to seeing a regular GP
