Hi.  Since the nipple swelling is just a recent event, occurring within the past three days, this may be due to an ongoing infection.  The nipples can also swell as a result of the normal hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.  Estrogen (the female hormone) increases as menstruation approaches, and this may cause the breasts, along with the nipples to take up fluid and swell.
