My Nipples Are Really Sore And They Have Like Little White Bumps Surrounding Them

should i be worried?

i dont know what it could be?

Answer

Since you say it's both nipples Sarah, I'd say this could be a hormonal thing, related to your period; or a topical, temporary skin condition, perhaps related to a new body wash, laundry soap, etc. Cancer doesn't affect both breasts at once with this particular symptom. Your nipples are a sensitive area of your body, and something as normal as winter's extra-cold weather can disturb them at times. Also, nipples do get REALLY sore sometimes around your period or when you're pregnant—could you be pregnant? At any rate, the ultimate solution is to have them checked by a doctor, see what's up, OK? Good luck - PJH
