Hey there,

Have you been scratching it? The itching can be for many reasons including irritation with clothes or washing powder, being bitten by something, or have skin related issues and infection.

Perhaps try to leave it alone and figure out what may have caused the itching and avoid anything that might've caused it. If it doesn't get better within a few days or seems to get worse and occurs with other symptoms like swelling, pain and discharge then it's best you get it checked out with a doctor.

Does it have 'Cracks' or scars? Sometimes during the summer my nipples will dry out (I am guessing that is why) and they will itch a little bit (sometimes uncontrollable) and if I examine them they will be red and there will be cracks (I don't know if that's the proper term because the cracks don't bleed).

It is very possible that this is due to the weather (I know some people experience similar things with their nipples during the winter as well). If the itching doesn't get better I would definitely suggest that you go talk to a doctor just to make sure that everything is okay and the doctor might be able to help you find solutions.

whenever my breasts grow a bit, even if it's just from that time of the month or something, they itch. since you're still young, they could still be growing and that could be the cause of itching. perhaps the scars are stretch marks or something, depending on where they are?

i know nipple itching can be a sign of breast cancer or something, but that's worst case scenario. like others have said, if this continues for a long time, any other symptoms come into play, or the itching gets unbearable, go see a doctor.

i don't know what i'm supposed to do
