Can I put bandaids on my nipple?
Your nipples may keep getting darker as you get closer to delivery (maybe that’s nature’s way of making sure baby can find them when it comes time to breastfeed?). Whatever the reason, nipple darkening is perfectly normal, and your nips will typically fade to your pre-pregnancy shade after birth.
Don’t immediately be alarmed if you notice peeling, scaling, or flaking on your breasts or the skin around your nipples. This is a symptom of breast cancer, but it can also be a symptom of atopic dermatitis, eczema, or another skin condition.
Isolated third nipples can be removed via a simple procedure, similar to the removal of a mole. For supernumerary nipples connected with breast tissue, a mastectomy (removal) can be done.
