Brown circles around nipples.

I was talking a shower one day when I noticed these brown circles around my nipples. I didn't know what it was. Is it ringworm? Bruises? Can someone tell me please.

Re: Brown circles around nipples.

This sounds like nothing, but don't be afraid to mention it to your doctor when you go to see him/her about the sweating problem. They should be able to ease your mind.

Re: Brown circles around nipples.

Okay.....it appears the brown skin around my nipples have gotten darker and are really rough. They feel like how a scab feels. I know they aren't though. Please tell me what this is...

Re: Brown circles around nipples.

The nipple is the little sticky out part of the breast, like a small pencil eraser. The areola is the brown circle are around the nipple. Some have large areola & nipples & some have small ones.

All people have them.

Re: Brown circles around nipples.

If the areola is bulging out, you may be growing "puffies". This happens in some teen males & they usually shrink back down. It is caused by extra estradiol as the teen hormones try to get the correct ratio of testosterone:estradiol.

Good luck
