Answer

Sounds like you have a pimple; there are oil glands around your nipple that can get blocked and infected, just like those around your nose and chin. Don't squeeze it; apply warm, moist compresses, keep it clean and aired out (no bra, if possible), and apply a bit of antibiotic ointment. If it doesn't go away within a couple of weeks - or certainly if it get worse - best to see a doctor for some treatment, OK? Take care- PJH
