there was a bra that i had not worn for a while in my bathroom floor. let me say that a while back i was dying my hair in this bathroom and i know some of it got on my clothes and stained them. maybe some got on this bra. well, i decided to wear it the other day and it was fine for a while but it kept rubbing against me weird and made my nipple sore. later on it got worse, but there was not much i could do until after school. i looked at it, and the nipple (not any skin around it) was red and puffy and sore. after school i changed bras and it stopped being puffy and sore but was still red. the next day or too i didn't pay any attention to it, but today, it looks really small and it was peeling! i peeled off everything i could and now its just really tickilish and itchy in my bra. the other (right) nipple was not affected at all. what should i do?

It sounds as though your nipple simply got chaffed. The best thing to do is keep is clean and moisturised, until it fully heals. Don't pick at it, and perhaps wear a band-aid over it so that your bras don't continue to irritate it.
It is going to itch, until it's more healed, but as long as you try to keep it moisturised and not dried out, it should help. If it isn;t better withing a few days, or if it gets worse, then perhaps a call to your doctor may be in order. But really, I don't think you have anythign to worry about.
