Welcome to HealthcareMagic
There are certain glands (sebaceous glands) in areolar region, which gets enlarged during pregnancy (physiological) more common in first timers. It is known as Montgomery's tubercles. In your case what it appears like they got infected. Dont worry It wont affect your fetus. Consult your doctor for management. Take care.
