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.
mark_daniel responded:
when you say very sensitive, do you mean that they're painful to touch? are your nipples very pronounced? are your pectoral muscles normal?

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

my pecs are normal but its like my nips are like on hard but sensitive, they dont really hurt to touch but they are just sensitive.
