Question:

I am having very bad pain in both of my nipples.They are very sore when you touch them. The pain is only in my nipples.I am currently taking steriods for my RH pain. Does this have anything to do with the nipple soreness?Should I see a doctor right away?

Answer:

I don't think that the nipple pain is related to the steroid use.  I'm not sure what is causing it, but you should probably be evaluated.
