Could it be thrush? Is your DCs mouth ok?
Here is a pic of it on the babe as well as the breast:
I have something similar on just one breast, for me it started when ds was sick and had a lazy latch on that breast, i got some grazes and irritation from his teeth, the latch is corrected again but it got dry and cracked, and now with my hormonal surge with af getting ready to come to town, and now is in town, its more like a dermatitis. I have been reapplying lanolin as much as possible since its dry and cracked, and its healing really well.
I thought it could be trush at the start, but because it was only one nipple, no symptoms in either me or ds, i just treated it like dry irritated skin. The oozing sounds like it has got a little infected or irritated at all the treatments and changes its going through. are you wearing a bra all the time? a big part of my healing is not wearing any bra and wearing loose clothing on the top so that it can breathe and airdry etc.
For some reason on my home and office comp, this link is broken for me, but it seems as if everyone else can see it. Can someone send me the photobucket url to my email? Then maybe I can help the OP.
I don't want to be an alarmist or scare you unnecessarily but mention Paget's disease to your doctor. This is a scary but VERY RARE disease that when caught early can be treated.
You said it it is spreading to the other breast which would likely mean this isn't something to worry about (Paget's disease does not spread to the other breast!) but I had to mention it just in case!
ETA: I'd probably also mention inflammatory breast cancer which is also rare but just to be sure. (Sorry - I'm a medical journal junkie which makes me always think of the worst case scenario!)
