In brief: Probably sebum
Sebum is the little bits of creamy oil from glands in certain parts of the body's skin.
Sebum keeps the skin waterproof, soft, and free of cracks.

In brief: Sebum
The bumps you refer to are called montgomery tubercles.
They secrete an oily substance to lubricate the nipple during breast feeding.
