Nipple Spots Symptoms
I was diagnosed with fibro sclerosis and adenosis over a year ago, I now have a white spot on my nipple could this be a symptom?
Not likely, but: A white spot (no bump or anything but color) is not likely to relate to this but there's no reason not to check it in an exam by your doctor.

Small spots on upper chest, red in colour. Not itchy. Is this a symptom ov HIV, even tho had a rapid finger prick test at 27 week and result was Neg?

You did not mention whether you have had unprotected sex during the past 40 weeks and thus a negative test at 27 weeks cannot tell you whether you have contracted HIV or not. Nonetheless if it is from another viral infection or a drug reaction, the rash should resolve in ...Read more

Nipple discharge: This can be perfectly normal or a sign of a hormonal imbalance. Try to not stimulate your breasts or nipples at all. Don't keep checking because that will send the signal to your brain to make more discharge. Instead hands off for 2 months. If the discharge is still there is 2 months, we recommend checking your thyroid function and a prolactin hormone level. ...Read more
I keep getting these dry, red spots on my nipples. What could they be? Sometimes they itch really bad. They are really sensitive. It's on both nipples
Montgomery Glands?: If they are small bumps containing white material on the areola (brown area surrounding nipple) then they are likely montgomery glands. These lubricate the nipples and the surrounding tissue and are not a cause for worry. ...Read more

Montgomery Glands: The skin of the nipple has modified oil (sebaceous) glands that lubricate the nipple called montgomery glands. Cysts can develop when these get blocked; rarely, these get infected and need to be lanced. Bottom line: no pain/no drainage/no worries. ...Read more
Areolar skin glands: They are probably montgomery tubercles, which are areolar glands that help provide lubrication to the nipple and are more pronounced in pregnancy. If its something new, or you're having abnormal discharge or pain, you should probably get it checked out by your doc just to be on safe side. ...Read more
