  • I have them on my nipples all of the time. I think it's normal.

  • These are probably just Montgomery Tubercles. They are used to secrete oils to help protect your nipples and are perfectly normal. You can read about them here:

    The only reason you should be worried is if they're especially large, discolored or paintful.
