red spots while breastfeeding? daniellefm♥Koen 1 child; Michigan 20880 posts

I've been BFing for a month now, and today I just noticed I have these little red spots on my boobs. they're not bumps, they just look like little dots. like from the tip of a red marker or something. I only noticed 3 or 4 of them, but they're on both boobs..
does anyone know what this is? could it be from breastfeeding? and if so, is it normal?



edit* it's on my skin, not on my nipples

Did you change detergents or anything recently? Get a new bra?

I havent changed anything. I have been exclusively breastfeeding since day 1. They are just like a red freckle and seem to go away on their own.Only seen it twice so far. Im not too worried about it it doesnt hurt or anything

my doc said something about it maybe being an infection. i'm not too sure though.

Hmmm, I don't know. The only thing weird that's been going on with me and my boobs is I have tiny white dots on my nipples, but that's yeast. Not too sure. I would just call your doctor if they have a nurse line.

I just looked at mine because I have never noticed, and I have little red dots too. Haha. They are little bitty. They look like maybe tiny busted blood vessels. I don't think it's anything to worry about.
