I am breastfeeding a 20 month old. In March I had my annual exam, my obgyn noticed a red spot on my aerola under my right nipple. She was concerned about it and referred me to a breast specialist. I saw the breast specialist in April, she wasn't worried about it at all. She said it was from breastfeeding. Now that spot is getting a bit better, but I have the exact same spot on the left nipple. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with anything like this? Makes me think it really is from breastfeeding since it is on both sides, but just need a little reassurance.
The spots don't bother me. They are a 1/2 circle right under the nipple. They follow the line of where his teeth could be, or wondering if it could be from pumping?
Thanks so much!
