Many women get bumps on their nipples,they are usually due to blocked oil glands.The skin of your nipples has some very large oil glands and occasionally they can get plugged up with dead skin cells and skin oils(just like pores on your face or any other part of your body).If left alone they'll probably go away of their own accord.If they are squeezed, the bumps could get hot,hard, swollen and painful. The best thing to do now is to see your doctor because you could be having an infection and this has to be treated.Please make the appointment soon to make sure that you don't have a more serious problem...Take care and best wishes.
