This sounds very much like plugged oil glands around your nipples. Just like on your face, where you can get whiteheads, there are tiny oil glands right around your nipples, and they can become blocked. I wouldn't think this is an emergency, where you'd need to see your doctor right away. But why not call, describe your symptoms, and see if s/he wants to see you about this? Good luck - PJH
