Ok, so here's the background...
I hit puberty at age 9, and that's when everything started growing and I started to get spots and hair growth. I'm naturally dark haired, so shortly after it developed I started shaving my legs. I also developed thick-ish dark hair around my nipples. Being about ten, I also decided to start shaving them. To start, all was good, but then I started getting ingrowing hairs in my nipples. This lead to spots, and me manually digging the hairs out, leaving scabs. The scabs and resulting scarred skin caused the hairs to continue to ingrow, which resulted in a cycle of digging the hairs out, scabs and ingrowing hair!
A random side effect was that I started to find I picked at them when stressed - almost like self-harm. It really calmed me down to make them bleed. Anyway, that added to the cycle and the resulting scars.
As a result I now have very scarred areoles - it's something I am very aware of, very embarrassed about, and have never met anyone with a similar problem!
NOr sure how long this'll be up before being deleted cause of the pics, but I wanted to know what people actually thought, are they disgusting or would you even notice?
- Eeeewww, disgusting, wouldn't want to touch em!Vote A
- I'd assume you had an STD!Vote B
- Your boobs are out, I wouldn't notice anything else!!Vote C

I believe my dad had those spots or whatever around his nipples like a decade ago. They are gone now. I don't think that a girl having this will be a big disgust to guys. No body is perfect. Every person has something they are not happy with. But it doesn't mean it's gonna be a big deal to others. Do research and maybe visit a doctor to find recommendations on what would be good to do with this. But don't be so negative about this. It's okay.0

i didn't see anything different in the first picture, the second picture you can tell a bit more, but unless you're having sex under a spotlight, then I don't think a guy will even notice. the little bumps around are totally normal, and the bumps outside of that don't even look that bad. honestly they kind of look like my tats and I've never had a guy complain or even notice :)1
