Hi

 

I am new to this community but was really hoping somebody could help. My 6 Year old Daughter 7 In April keeps complaining that her Left Nipple really hurst and stings. When looking i have noticed it is really sore and swollen. I am really worried. I have read that it may be due to Breast Buds but this is always mentioning to children age 8-9 not 6. Surely my daughter cant be forming breasts at 6. I was 16 when i grow breasts so i find this madness.

 

If somebody could help me i would be every so grateful!.

Could location be a coincidence and it is another issue? Clogged pore, ingrown hair, something like that? I would take her to the dr.

No nothing like that. We are at the doctors today so hopefully get a answer.

My doctor told us it was normal breast tissue enlarged by horomones. Nothing to worry about and it could resolve itself or continue to be swollen up through puberty. I had a baby girl with this and it was caused by my horomones and it resolved itself and now I have an 8 year old with this and it is her horomones! So just the start (not necessarily full on puberty but getting horomones) and totally normal.
