Aerolas wrinkling and losing color

User Profile
I'm 55 and about a year ago my Areola's (both) began to wrinkle up and lose color on the wrinkled part (almost like welts just on the Areola). They became really sore when I pushed on them but that pain comes and goes, mostly nothing now but now they look very wrinkling. What could be causing this on both of them at the same time and is this something to be concerned about? Is there something I came put on the to reverse the damage? I took a picture of this if you need to take a look.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
These are normal as both breasts are involved.
There are creams availaible in the market like isotretinoin,lactic acid 12% cream etc that are reversing it.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

I can't seem to find the isotretioin cream or gel. Do you know where I can find this online?

Plus, how long does it take to see results?
