    So my boyfriend sucked on my nipple and now there are red dots all around it and its swollen. How long does it take to go away? Can I make them go away faster? Because I'm kinda young and I can't let my parents see it. They would kill me and him.

    Hi - Your nipples are a very sensitive part of your body, their skin easily irritated - as you've discovered. The swelling and dots should abate quite quickly, I'd think, unless they were treated quite roughly. Try putting cold compresses on them (a wet washcloth wrapped around ice would be a cold compress). And please think twice about doing things your parents would "kill you" about. They're trying to do the best for you, and if you believe they'd be really angry about this - there's a reason, and perhaps you'd better listen to them. Good luck - PJH

      If they're on both nipples, then this is probably a skin issue of some sort. Have you switched shower gel or laundry detergent? Been swimming a lot lately? Perhaps you're wearing a new bra? Since what you describe doesn't sound like a breast cancer symptom, I wouldn't worry too much about it; it's OK to wait and see if these dots disappear on their own or, on the other hand, if they grow and become more widespread. If the latter, you'd want to see a doctor to find out what's going on, OK? Good luck - PJH READ MORE
