Crusty nipples??!

Just noticed today right on my nipples where the little holes are, felt little crusties of something.. Tried scraping it off, it worked!..

Lol I was w my hubby when checking it out, he said " you need to wash your nipples when you shower"
Researched it, apparently it's dried colostrum??? Not sure though...ANYONE W SAME ISSUE?? Please say yes!!

  • I've noticed this too bit never felt anything wet. I'm glad it's not just me lol I thought maybe my nipples were just getting really dry or chapped or something but didn't know how that could be
  • It's not just you! I haven't noticed any leaking but my nipples are dry and I have yellowish/white crusties that I can pick off.

    Same here!  I thought my skin was really dry, but the middle of my nipples seemed like a strange place for dry skin!  Also, it was yellowish so it didn't make sense.

  • Same for me too, if I hadn't seen the earlier post about this I probably would have freaked out! I don't have any wetness, just whitish crusty gunk on my nipples, and I sometimes have to take a hot shower to make my boobs stop hurting so badly.

  • OMG! I just posted on the same topic before I saw your post!!! I just noticed it this morning! This is my third child and I either forgot about this happening or I didn't really notice it before! Now I feel better knowing I'm not the only one! :)
