Pimples on my breasts
Hi there

I wonder if you can help me. I have pimple type things on my aureole. When I squeeze them - white glutinous stuff comes out - like with whiteheads on your other skin. Is this normal? Also - on my nipples themselves - if I squeeze there - the same stuff comes out. The pimply things are always there but the white stuff doesn't always come out.

Thank you!

If you are having a discharge from your breasts, this could be due to overactivity of the milk producing gland (unless you have recently been breastfeeding) or a problem with the breasts themselves. See your doctor to have this checked.
