Q: white pimples on nipples

I HAVE SMALL PIMPLE LIKE THINGS ON MY NIPPLES. WHEN MASHED, WHITE STUFF COMES OUT OF THEM BUT THEY NEVER GO AWAY. MY OB/GYN SAYS IT IS MILK DUCTS THAT HAVEN'T DRIED UP YET, BUT MY CHILD WILL BE 3 NEXT MONTH. YOU WOULD THINK THIS WOULD BE GONE BY NOW??

Hi Brandi - I'd think your ob/gyn would be steering you straight. However, if you'd like another opinion, ask to be referred to a breast specialist. And in the meantime, please read our post on nipple discharge; I think it'll help you out. Good luck - PJH
