Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

If this is on the dark area it is a montgomery gland Theses are normal glands that lubricate the nipple. They become more noticeable in pregnancy and breastfeeding. its nothing to worry about. :)
