Hi - Please read our post on nipple issues - it may help you decide whether/when to see a doctor about this. Bottom line, keep your eye on these spots; if they don't change (get larger, more pronounced, darker, start itching or become painful), then they're probably just a skin issue of some kind. If they change, you should see a doctor, OK? Good luck - PJH
