Little Bumps Around Areola

Hi,

I've had these for a number of years now-little bumps round my areola (of my breasts). Heaps of people have said to me that little bumps and wrinkles are completely normal-but it would be comforting for people to tell me why they are there and if they have them too. In pictures of naked woman you never seem to see them so are they normal or what. I'm 16 by the way.

Any replies would be appreciated.

Re: Little Bumps Around Areola

Pictures of naked women are likely to be airbrushed to perfection. Most women have these bumps that you speak about. They are most likely hair follicles or milk ducts. If they are painful, you should see a doctor. If they worry you, you should probably see a doctor anyhow.<p>[This message has been edited by superviolist (edited 12-17-2002).]

Re: Little Bumps Around Areola

LOL I always wondered that too why everyone else seemed to have no bumps there, while I did so I thought something was wrong with me. But I guess not..:-) Although my bumps are quite big...A few are the size of like small bb's from bb guns....

I have them and I'm 24 a mother. I didn't get them until after breastfeeding.

Re: Little Bumps Around Areola

They're oil glands to keep your areola supple and soft, keeps them from drying out during breastfeeding.
