Male Nipples Burning in Shower

I am a 51 y/o male, 5.7 , 150 lbs that started experiencing burning and extreme sensitivity in my nipples while in the shower for the past two days. The burning and sensitivity went away shortly after the shower. It does not matter if cold or hot water shower. I do not take any estrogen or other stimulants , do not drink, am a vegeterian. It is not sexual arousal related. It is not related to cotton or polyester or silk or any other kind of clothing item I am wearing. It is not related to weight lifting or jogging or exercise since I have been exercising regularly three times a week for the past 25 years and the routine has not changed--jogging, lifting weight, stretching. I looked up for possible reasons on the Web but no luck.

Hi,Cixtynine,
You do not worry about your problem,it may be due to some nerve irritation around around nipple,but observe the following points.
Have you got any lump underneath the nipple or not,
Is there any crack in or around nipple as it may cause irritation and infection.
If you do not find any of this you do not worry,gradually this sensation will go away.
O k and bye.

Hello. I am a 22 year old male. About 9 months ago, maybe more, I noticed in the shower that my left nipple was sticking out farther than my right. I promptly squeezed it and it had a discharge much like a pimple before it was empty. After this, nothing else came out that day, but the nipple has remained larger on the left side, and occasionally (once every few days,) if I squeeze it, it will discharge a tiny bit more. I cannot identify any lumps of any kind to indicate gynecomastia or breast cancer, and am really stumped/concerned as to what else could possibly be causing unilateral nipple discharge in a 22 year old male.

My husband is 33 years old and about 3 days ago he started having a burning sensation with some pain on both his nipples after his military workout. He has been working out for as long as he has been in the military and this has never happened before! Then we checked it today and now he has a few either small blisters or pimples. They were a bit of a white color before he took a shower, now it looks swollen and red. What can be causing this?
