Sorry for the delay, I had gone offline.

Nipple erection is usually not much of a problem. It is one of the random phases that the body goes through and is usually without an identifiable cause.

However, rarely, it may be caused by an hormonal imbalance. It may also be caused by a local inflammation around the area of the nipples such as blockage of an oil duct, etc. Even more rarely, it may be associated with breast diseases like fibrocystic disease.

You should have it checked up by a gynae. It does not usually signify a major problem, but it is necessary to get it checked up.
