Pimples on Areola

I have what look like pimples on my Areola, and I'm only 18 years old, I'm not pregnant, and I've had them for as long as I can remember. What do I do to get rid of them?

Dear R08169689: You are likely describing a normal feature of breast anatomy. The little lumps on the aereola are called montgomery's glands. They are entirely normal.

You don't. They are a part of the breast.

I've never heard of anyone wanting to make them go away. You should ask your doctor.
