White Spot On Nipple (Overview)

Sometimes, a tiny white dot can be seen at the opening of the duct on the nipple. Massaging the area and putting gentle pressure on it can help to remove the plug. A milk duct can become plugged if the baby does not feed well, if the mother skips feedings (common when the child is weaning), or if she wears a constricting bra.

Does a white spot on my nipple while nursing mean I have a clogged milk duct?

Does a white spot on my nipple while nursing mean I have a clogged milk duct?

Probably yes: A white spot on the nipple of a breastfeeding mom probably is a clogged milk duct. There are other skin glands, such as oil glands, that also can clog and be seen as a white dot. A doctor can gently remove the whitish material at the skin surface, and then the mom can see if the spot returns over a couple of days.

??: I'd really like to help you, and other docs would too - but this is not a question. Lots of abbreviated information followed by a question mark is still not a question. We want to help you, please consider organizing thoughts and asking one clear question. This is not a message board and most docs won't respond to this kind of post. C'mon, try it again and good luck.

After sex, took plan b, regular period 1nce, -ve preg. Test, I spot white clots, nipples have darkened, could I be preg.? Could Plan B avoid pregnancy now?

After sex, took plan b, regular period 1nce, -ve preg. Test, I spot white clots, nipples have darkened, could I be preg.? Could Plan B avoid pregnancy now?

Many answers: If you have missed a period, or had bleeding atypical for your periods, you could be pregnant. It can take up to 2 weeks for a test to turn positive, so may consider repeating the pregnancy test if you have missed a period. Idk what "white clots" are. This is discharge and could be infection, std don't take Plan B again if you think you may be pregnant. It only works up to 3 day.

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?

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. If you are not worried after reading this link - you can just wait till your next visit. But again, if you are concerned - set up an appointment. Of course, I hope it's nothing. Https://en.

If i’m nursing and there is a white spot on my nipple along with breast pain, what should I do?

If i’m nursing and there is a white spot on my nipple along with breast pain, what should I do?

Warm compress: The white spot is most likely a "bleb" that forms at the end of the nipple, making it harder for the milk to come out and causing pain. Warm compresses may help it loosen and be removed. The baby nursing from that side may help as well. If that doesn't work, sometimes a surgeon can quickly remove them. They often recur. Lecithin has been suggested as a way to stop the recurrences.

See your GP: You need to get a breast exam by your GP. You may also need some blood tests done. You may need an ultrasound as well. Don't delay see a doctor so that you can get a diagnosis.
