Weird thing happened to my nipple - please help, really worried!

Hi all,

One of my nipples used to be pierced but I took it out about 7-8 years ago and it's all healed up ok, no problems.

I'm currently 22w pg. this morning I woke up and on either side of where the piercing holes used to be, my nipple is white, looks really odd as the rest of the nipple is a lot darker than normal.

At first I wondered if it's an infection but they don't hurt, they're not hot, no discharge from anywhere, not harder or softer than the rest of the tissue, just white!

Can anyone help with this? Am really worried sad

Forgot to say, the whiteness goes right to the outside of my nipple on both sides.

It's probably where there is old scar tissue and you're noticing it as your nips stretch a bit and change colour when pregnant. I wouldn't be overly concerned if there's no pain or weird discharge or anything but mention it to your midwife just in case.

I had a white dot on one nipple, never had a piercing in late pregnancy, asked my mw who didn't know but later read in a book ( think its calked a white spot)it's just a blocked milk duct ( that's if this is the same thing, mine was white slightly raised and about 3 mm, while breast feeding it eventually came away so I think that's what it was and I still get it now occasionally but nowhere ne'er the same size, you could squeeze it out if it is that
