It is probably just a benign condition called Fordyce spot which is increased activity of the normal sebaceous gland on the areola. It usually does not require any treatment because harmless but if you want to get it removed, you could get it looked at by a Dermatologist who will give you various treatment options like Co2 laser removal.
