FNAC and USG breast showed no evidence of abnormality .For scling of the skin dermatological reference wasdone and the diagnosis of eczematous dermatitis was made .. Liquid paraffin oil three times a day was advised for 2 days . Results: It led to drastic clearance of all the crusts and discharge with completely normal appearing breast.
