    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.

    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.

    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...

    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
