Suggest treatment for a small white spot on the nipple

I have a small white spot on my nipple. A young doctor said it would go away in three weeks but three months later it is still here. It is the size of a pin head. Do I need to go back to the Dr? I do not want it to be Paget s disease. It is not sore. I am a 68 year old woman. I do not feel any lumps within the breast.

Hi.Understanding your concern.As per your query white pin point spot on nipple will not be a pagets disease .Do not worry.It can be due to mild infection or due to rubbing of fabric.You need to worry if there is any pus discharge,any pain or redness or any lump formation.Still for sake of satisfaction you can have a mammography done to rule out any pathology.you can talk to your doctor about it. I hope the information helps you.Take care.
