Could this be reaction or side effect of these drugs that i am taking??? Please advice..

thank you,

Answer:

Premarin cream can cause breast tenderness if used in a high enough dose.  Using a small amount once a week would be unlikely to cause symptoms, but if you are using a large amount of it, even though only once a week, you could experience symptoms.  If your symptoms do not resolve in a few days, check with your physician.
