scaly, almost shiny skin on my left boob. Im 14

User Profile
I noticed this weird scaly, almost shiny skin on my left boob. It doesn't itch or anything but there's some red bumps around it too. I'm scared it could be something bad but I'm only 14. I've also been having these weird chest pains but only on that side. Do I need to be worried?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the changes in skin and the appearance of bumps that you describe on breast without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Avoid self treatment. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
