Purple Nipples

A month ago my chest hurt so bad I didn't want to take my bra off at all then it went away. Recently I noticed my nipples started turning purple and then back to the normal color.  I thought it was becasue I was cold until I took a hot shower and they stayed that color.  Should I be concerned?

I dont think its uncommon for nipples to change colors. Ive read this post b4 & wouldnt be something to really worry about.

Hello,
I know it was a long time since you wrote, but ive been having the same problems. I thought it was down too cold, but i too was having a shower and i noticed my nipples had turned puple. They have been hurting alot lately, and they feel heavier. I researched quite alot and there are many resons as to why they are the way they are. Ive seen a nurse, and i didnt find it really helpfull. If you could give me any info i would be gratefull becuaseim worrying alot bout it.

I am 16  and one of my nipples has changed color to purple and looks like it has split at one side of the nipple. It goes purple in the shower. It has been happening for about 2 years. does anyone know what it could be ?

I would highly suggest having a mammogram done,not to scare you or anything
but i only had one sympton of my breast itching very badly.
It turned out I had a Fibroadeoma(tumor)in my breast that i had to have surgery
to get removed 2 weeks ago. My breast specialist said any changes in breast should always be checked out.
Its so much better to be safe

I'm having the exact same problem! Atleast for 2 months now, I'm 17 and have never been sexually active or anything, the pain last for a really long time and I'm to emberresed and nervous to tell my parents or a doctor
