Question:

Is it normal to have bumps like pimples on my nipples?

PEER ANSWER

It’s normal to have bumps on your nipples that look like pimples but don’t necessarily feel sore like pimples. Do the bumps you’re describing kind of look like Braille – the reading system for blind people – on your nipples? I know, weird way to put it, but when thinking about how I was going to go about explaining what the bumps on nipples look like, Braille was the first thing to come to mind. If the bumps on your nipples are sore and somewhat painful, I’d suggest seeing a health professional. But if they’re simply just little bumps on your nipples that don’t do much other than just sit there, then there’s nothing to worry about – It’s absolutely normal.

MOM ANSWER

Yes. Those bumps are actually glands and everyone has them.  Everyone’s “bumps” are different, though, so if you feel like yours are bigger or smaller or whiter or pinker than normal rest assured -- they’re probably not.  Our bodies are all different in every way, right down to the size of our pores.

EXPERT ANSWER

It is normal to have small bumps on the flat, brown part of your breast called the areola. These bumps are called Montgomery glands. They secrete oil that helps to lubricate the areola. They become slightly larger and slightly red/pink when you are pregnant and breastfeeding.
