I have scabbing around my areola. Why scabbing now, this long after and what do I do about it? Thank you. Tracy

You should have an immediate breast consultation
Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your difficulty. Crusting or scabbing around the areola can be associated with a type of breast cancer called Paget's disease, and this requires immediate attention. You should see your primary doctor or gynecologist and have a referral to a breast specialist for biopsy. This could be completely unrelated to your past augmentation.
