    sensitive nipples
    An_206223 posted:
    I'm a thirty year old man. I just started having a problem with sensitive nipples, the slightest touch and it starts. it last about a few days and goes away, but then returns a few days to a week later. symptoms are: puffy or swollen nipples and around the nipple, and very sensitive. It just started when I turned 30. Is this something that just happens or has anyone else had this problem? or should I see a doctor with this issue? thanks.

    i've never heard of anything like this before personally. i would definitely check with your doctor about it.
