    :blush: a bit of an embarassing thing...

    but you know, if you look at your nipple, it's like all little blobs,
    kind of like a raspberry, but much smaller, obviously lol

    well, on my one nipple a few of those things decided to grow and/or multiply,
    so now there's like a bit of nipple on my nipple...if that makes sense.

    anyway, anyone had this and got rid of it? if so, how do they do it? and does it take long to heal?
    can gp's do this? i think they can, i know my MIL/FIL can but there's no way i'm throwing my boob on the table for them, ya know...

    i've planned to ask my gyn this every time i see him (every month) but forgotten every time (even writing it down doesn't seem to help tss).

    Do you mean Montgomery glands? They're perfectly normal :)

    nope, know what those are :) those are around the nipple area, what i have is really ON the tip of my nipple, more like...skin bits growing wild.

    like.. you can get it on any other area of your body, armpits, chest, arms...in creases it seems, but of course I have to get it in such an odd place!

    *googles skin tag*

    YES! that's what it is (thankyou, i kept searching in the melanoma department bc i had no other name for it)

    i'm just worried that it will put baby off from breastfeeding on that one boob if i leave it on

    I got one when I was pregnant with my son, after he was born it didnt disappear but it went teeeeeny tiny. Like, barely the size of a full stop. Now, its back and big again. It'll go, dont worry. :)
