Sore and red

Hello ladies. I'm a bit worried cause my nipples are swelling and red, and they are really sore! I get that soreness is normal in pregnancy, what in worried about is the swelling and the redness. Is this normal? Has it happened to you?

During all 3 of my pregnancy my nipples have done some amazing things swell,itch,burn,change from pink,light brown and then dark dark brown, crack, and the size just keeps growing mine leak on occasion so all of this is normal our poor bodies go through so much during pregnancy  I had a great milk supply i just figured that's why i went through alot of changes i put aloe vera on them while pregnant but not after baby is born if you nurse there is cream if it doesn't go away by then

Thanks for the feedback. I worry I might be something bad, as in breast cancer symptoms or something... I know it may sound weird but my mom had cancer very young and I go get checked every year. And I know pregnancy hormones can trigger it too, so.. That's why
