    Montgomery's tubercles (as you seem to already know) are the little bumps on your areola. They secrete oil, which helps keep your nipples healthy, and discourages bacteria. They're natural; if you let them do their job without interference, your breasts will be happier! PJH

    Hey, I have found somthing that helps with this, if you lubricate the nipple with olive oil, or some type of natural oil. The white stuff does not come as much. The areola is much more soft, and it seem to help it kinda go away.
