I breast fed my DD for a very short period right after her birth 5 years ago. After my milk dried I was left with some white spots on my nipples. They are kind of like hard kernles down in my nipple that is white. They would kind of come and go and never really botherd me much, but now that I am pregnant again and my breast size has increased there seems to be more of them. I can take my fingernail and pull them out of my nipple and I have been doing that over the last few weeks and every time I look there is more white spots there. Does anyone else have this? Should I keep on getting it out or leave it alone? I guess it is maybe dried milk stuck in my ducts or something.
Thank goodness I am not the only one this is happenng to!!! Except....I am not pregnant but i have had two m/c within a year...so could this be waht itis from...you can actually scrape them off, and you are right, they come right back!!!! What is that????
