Today when i was getting dressed I noticed a lump with a white head on my areola.. It was about 4 times the size of a nice sized pimple and my first reaction was to squeeze the stuff out of it. So I got the puss out of it but there is still a small lump under the skin. Might it have something to do with the fact that my nipples are pierced? Even though they seem to be healed fine...
Dear maggotofdoom, The skin on the breast is like skin on any other area of the body and subject to a variety of skin conditions. If this area does not show signs of healing, or more problems you may want to bring it to the attention of your doctor who can evaluate this for you.
What could be this?

Itchy areola with bumps around my nipple on my breast right side. I tried putting Cortizone but does not even work. It is painful at time when touch and or putting brassier. Please help and what should I do?
