  • Nipples "discoloring"/drying

    Hi , i'm a 16 year old girl and since less than a year , i noticed my nipples are changing colors . I have light brown skin , and normally dark brown nipples , but since a while some areas of my nipples are dry and there is like a pink undertone on them. It isn't constant , sometimes my nipples get back to their original brown , and 3-4 hours laters they're pink again . It's really frustrating.at first i thought that they were just dry since sometimes little peaces of white skin are between the "breast wrinkles" so i would add greasy lotions on them but it wouldn't really help. I have a pretty big chest and my breast lactate although i've never been pregnant , and blue veins are visible on both of my breasts (one on each). The underside of my breasts is also often a little sweaty (probably because they're big). I'm really concerned and think about going to the gynecologist , i just hope i don't have cancer or other big illnesses.
    Does anybody know what it can be ?

  • Welcome to WH! Maybe it is vitiligo. See if the symptoms fit.
