tiny black spots on nipples

I recently noticed tiny black spots on my nipples. They look and act sort of like blackheads. I noticed them right after i got out of the shower so I was very clean. I just finished having my period a few days ago and there is no way that I am pregnant. I also have frequent yeast infections that just always come back, if that might be connected.

You mention noticing these "spots" right after a shower and I'm wondering if they remain the same at a different time of day. This could be only a response to temperature changes; especially if they are present on both breasts. If you have serious concerns then you should make an appointment with your Physician for a clinical breast exam.    Regards .....
