Hello, I'm not pregnant and never have been. About two days ago my dog jumped off my chest and scratched my left nipple. The next day I saw a white head on my nipple and it hurts when it is touched or any type of contact. There is no type of discharge or secretion and I don't know if it was caused by the scratch or if it just made me notice it but I would like to know if this is normal among non pregnant and non nursing females. As of now it's not quite as tender to touch but the area is still sensitive, so any help on this would be most appreciated, THanks in advance ! ^_^
There is no infection or anything like to sort on the surrounding skin. Also there is no inflammation. It's just a white spot that looks like a "milk blister" or "bleb" which as far as i can tell only relates to those who breast feed, which I do not as I am not with child or expecting. So kinda confusing atm lol
I don't know any one who breast feeds having this problem. My daughter-in-law has had 4 children which she breast fed each one for well over a year and she never had anything like that.
I breast fed for my daughter for 9 months and never had any spots on my nipples. I stopped breast feeding her when she bit me with her 2 teeth, otherwise I would have breast fed for longer.
I did get mastitis whilst I was breast feeding and this is an infection of the breast and it was very inflamed and extremely painful. I still had to extract the milk from the breast. Luckily the poultices and antibiotics the doctor gave me got rid of the infection.
So in answer to your question, it is not normal for breastfeeding or non breastfeeding women to have anything appear like that on their nipples.
I had one and i know i shouldnt of and i did have a kid but i poke it lol white stuff came out just like a pimple. Being its on the outside and its not as tender i would watch it. I bet its a pimple as were not.doctors u cant say for sure but i am guessing its tender because our nipples are sensitive. If it goes away i Say ur good. Just watch it if it dont get worse and its starting to disappear i wouldnt worrt about it. U can get pimples and whiteheads there.
