In brief: Probably

It is hard to understand what is happening based on the posted information.
Why her nipples would be red or painful is elusive. The site can become infected with skin germs and place the breast tissue beneath at risk if an abscess or cellulitis forms at that site. I would have someone evaluate the issue to be sure.
