Itchy Breast
Almost every day the area around my nipple itches. I end up scrating the area and it becomes sore and tender. I do not have a rash but the area is dry. I do moisterise my breasts with body lotion. What could be the cause of this.

Hi Sue,

You do not state your age and menstrual status nor how long the problem has been present, which makes good advice difficult, but it sounds more like a skin problem than a breast problem...
