The bumps on the: Areola are likely montgomery glands. They can enlarge with pregnancy. Breast pain could be the result of pregnancy, oral contraceptives, pms or your period. If you miss a period - then take a home pregnancy test. Take care.

Pregnant?: Important to check home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If negative, repeat in 7 to 10 days. If both are negative, unlikely you were pregnant. If either positive, see your OB provider for evaluation. Best of luck. Hope this was helpful. Dr. R

Sore red bump/spot/nipple like on aerola next to nipple on right breast, could it be a pregnancy sign or something seriouse?

Sore red bump/spot/nipple like on aerola next to nipple on right breast, could it be a pregnancy sign or something seriouse?

Montgomery Glands: What you are describing sounds like montgomery gland cysts. These are modified oil glands that lubricate the nipple and have a tendency to get blocked and inflamed. If this doesn't improve over the next few weeks, please see your gynecologist to make sure all is well.

What causes the pain around the areola during pregnancy?

What causes the pain around the areola during pregnancy?

Engorgement: Breast tissue normally expands, and later becomes engorged. The stretching of the skin around the breast can often lend itself to pain around the areola. The areola is also hypersensitized during pregnancy and after delivery to help with breastfeeding and this can cause some irritation/pain as well. My wife used cocoa butter when she was pregnant and it helped her. Ob will have other treatments.

Not herpes: These bumps definitely are not herpes. Lesions of genital herpes go from red bump to blister to sore (with scab if on a dry surface) and then heal over 1-3 weeks. Genital warts are a possibility, but maybe nothing abnormal. Show your obstetrician. Some Ob's test routinely for HSV infection, but most probably do not -- but if you remain concerned about herpes, probably she will test you. Good luck!

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Is it safe to take homeopathy during pregnancy and im 3month. Becouse I have itchy skin get red bumps all over my body. Cant tolerate. Almost everyday?

You are a victim: Homeopathy is a SCAM. There is never any benefit except as a placebo. The purveyors of these useless but expensive products prey on people who are without benefit of modern, scientific medical knowledge. Best advise is to THROW IT AWAY.

Hormone changes: Hormone changes are most likely but if you are not drinking as much (possibly due to nausea or sickness) and are dehydrated, that would also contribute. Use a good moisturizer.

Elastic tissue: The elastic tissue of the skin will determine the area of the breast that the areola will cover. As aging, pregnancies or breast enlargement (or shrinkage) occurs, the areola will change its' appearance.
