  • My friend's nipple did that after she tried weaning and it turns out that she had mastitis..a breast tissue infection caused by bacteria that entered into her milk stream. Mastitis can also be caused by clogged milk ducts.

    It could also be a yeast infection.

    Both are cleared up with antibiotics.
