Anyone know?

Answer:
I wanted to remark that I myself experience itchy nipples if I have drank too much . If I take myself off of it then the goes totally away. I have made a very serious decision to stay off caffeine products and replace them with just good ole plain water. This seems to keep me feeling in tip top shape. Hope this helps

Hi Hollywood Blvd. There was just a story about this on our local chanel. They said that it could be cancer IF there was a rash to go along with it. Also, one would/could be swollen. Since I posted this article my itching has completely stopped. I itched for about 8 months. My girlfriend has the same issue... she itched for many months and suddenly it quit. If you have a rash, or are swollen, please see your Dr.
Happy Holidays.

I thought it might have been the dryness, but I always keep my breasts hydrated with lotion & Hydrocotisone & They still severely itch.

There is a rare form of breast cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Symptoms can include itching, as well as , and a hot or swollen breast. ICB usually (although not always) starts in one breast. Since both of your breasts are affected and you don't mention the other symptoms, your itchiness is probably caused by a benign condition. If you are concerned, you should see a doctor.

In response to the itcy breasts- I am a breast cancer survivor at age 32. The nipple of my cancer side itched like crazy, and I did not have inflammatory breast cancer, it was invasive ductal carcinoma. If your breast itches or changes color, or has any changes get it checked, and always perform monthly breast exams-that saved my life. Fact-your never too young to get breast cancer.
