Why This Happens

Mammary glands are the only glands that do not mature during puberty. Instead, they mature during pregnancy. This growth and development of the glands can cause the surrounding area to be sensitive to the touch, or sore. This is normal.

It is normal for the breasts to produce colostrum before the baby is born, but it is also normal if your breasts do not. Colostrum traped on the skin may cause irritation due to the moisture.
