Nipple issue :/

Not sure if this is an issue or not

Literally a skin tag has appeared on my nipple since this morning, I honestly can say it wasn't there earlier! Slightly concerned that it'll get ripped off during breastfeeding when baby arrives in some 6/7 weeks :/

Not sure what/if anything I can do?

I had this! I had several crop up about halfway through. The biggest one I tied off with a bit of cotton, the rest just fell off by themselves before DD was born. Very weird!

I had this too. Pregnancy encourages skin tag growth apparently.

I had it removed, although mine was at the top of the areola so wouldn't have effected breastfeeding per se but I wanted it gone as I hated it.

Glad it's not just me!

I've got doctors shortly anyway so might just ask if they can do anything :/

I had to pay to have it removed as they don't offer skin tag removal generally. I was very upset about that at the time.
