Small Lumps Like Blackheads Around The Areola Of The Breast?
I want to ask, after bathing around my areola there appear white like blackheads, is that normal?
Hello Dindamaha! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Small lumps like normal blackheads are found in the areola area. The lump is a gland that functions to remove oil to lubricate the areola area. This gland can enlarge when a woman is pregnant. However, if the lump is painful or feels warm, the lump may be a sign of infection. You should see a doctor to be examined if this happens. If you are breastfeeding, the lump may also be a blockage in the milk supply duct. See your doctor if the lump does not disappear after you breastfeed more often. Fungal infections of the baby's mouth that are being breastfed can also cause white spots on the areola area and the mother's nipples. If this happens, both the mother and baby must be treated equally.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
