Problem after nipple reduction surgery.

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs.  The bumps that you are seeing when your nipples become erect are a combination of hair follicles and glands of montgomery.  These are benign and no treatment is needed.  Hope this helps.

Plato's Scar Serum and Kenalog IIT

I would apply Plato's Scar Serum and evaluate the area for remnant scarring that may respond to IIT Kenalog. Apply Elevase ceramide cream for the dryness.
