White pimple on right nipple.

I am a 43 yrs old male. A few weeks ago having sex with my partner I realised that he had hurt my nipple. I did not think much about it then. This week I felt discomfort and pain when I touched that nipple or something rubbed against it. Today I did notice like a very small white pimple exactly in the middle of the nipple. I squeezed it & white stuff like a normal pimple came out followed by very little blood. I still see the white spot/pimple.Should I worry about this, or leave it to heal by itself?

Thanks.

Hi.  The injury to your nipple probably developed some infection.  This is the reason why it has become painful and tender, and why a whitish discharge can now be seen oozing out of it.  Topical antibiotics like mupirocin can help resolve the infection and hasten healing.
