Common Questions and Answers about My breasts itchy

breast

Ok, I'm 21 weeks with my second boy, and this time around has definitely been so different from my first born. My breasts are huge! I've already gone up 2 cup sizes and today they've itched so much!! With my first, my boobs were never itchy and they didn't get bigger til 2 days AFTER giving birth! Anyone else that can relate??
I don't think it is caused by detergent or soap since I only itch on my breasts, mainly my left one.
They have a Cosmetic Surgery Forum where you might get more responses.
Can somebody tell me why my breasts are so itchy I don't understand and also my back itches a lot also....it is very irritating!
My last annual was in March 2005 but I made an appt for next Thurs 01/31 to see my ob/gyn. I was reading on line about itchy breasts and that it might be a sign of cancer. Is this true? I just have been thinking it's changes in my breast tissue or something. What do you think? I haven't changed any soaps, detergents, etc. not putting lotions on my breasts either. Help!

I have been having problems with my breasts itching when I wear a bra. My breasts do not hurt, but they itch all over and I sometimes get little pimples on my breasts and along my braline towards my stomach. I am wondering what could cause this, and what I could do to make it stop. I am thinking that it is the material of my bra since it only seems to occur when I wear certain ones. Please help me.....I am so confused!

My breast have been very itchy all of a sudden, before they used to be sore and now they are really itchy! I tried checking it up but no luck. I am not pregnant, I do not use different soaps, everything is completely normal. So why do my breast itch sooo much??
Hi everyone, Yesterday my 17 year old daughter was scratching her breasts, and asked me if my breasts were always itchy as she always has itchy breasts.. I know that this is sometimes a indication that something could be wrong...should I be concerned, since I am going through the whole breast cancer thing right now? My cancer is HER 2 +, ER + PR+ BRAC -... I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I just thought I would tell you that.
I notice mine itching from time to time, more so in the beginning, but I think it was from a combo of them growing/skin stretching and my skin not being as moisturized as it could be.
I am a 40year old women who has been experiencing itchy breasts for the past 2-3 weeks. There is no rash, dryness, scaling, etc. The area appears completely normal except for the itching. I have not changed my detergent and have done nothing differently. As I search online for answers to my question, the only thing that comes up is Infllammatory Breast Cancer, which seems pretty drastic for this one symptom. Any others ideas?

22wks along n my breasts itch soooo bad!!! I scratch n there is no relief... anybody else have this problem?? What can I do for this? Lotion doesn't seem to work for them....
At first I thought that it may have been fabric softener or dry skin or something but then I began to wonder if there was a bigger problem going on. I scratch across my breasts (nipples too) that I leave red scratch lines. I scratch so hard that I don't care if my skin bleeds! Hopefully you get an answer soon. I'll check back later.

I'm 20 years old and my breasts have been itchy for about a week now. It's very concerning because it's not a normal itch. Normal itches last a while then "disappear", except this ithc is persistant. I've never been pregnant nor breast fed, however, there may have been history of breast cancer in my family! What could the cause be?
I Have been experiencing a itchy nipple on and off for the last few months and in the last couple of days i have had sharp pain shoting to my nipple.
But anyway, lately, my nipples have been feeling strange when it's in my bra. It's not really painful, itchy, or tingling. Maybe slight tingling, but not that much. I don't know if it's because of my paranoia (since breasts change a lot when you're pregnant) or something else. What's going on? The only word that can describe it is WEIRD. Help please?
when i woke up today a little bit of blood in my bra (left side) and when i examined my breast it looked as if the blood was coming from a cut in the skin probably due to my scratching, and not from the opening in my nipple itself, but i'm not too sure. should i see a doctor?
Can you recommend a treatment for itchy skin under my breasts, which are on the heavy side? I try to keep that area as dry as possible, but do perspire a lot under my breasts. My previous dermatologist prescribed a fungal cream and an anti-itch cream, which I blend together and spread under my breasts. It helps, but I'd like to avoid having to apply this every day. Sometimes I use a anti-fungal powder instead, but it's not as effective.
i have redness,stinky itchy breasts. They are large breasts I am 51 and have diabetes type 2 so annoying never had this before been going on for 2 weeks now. I first noticed it after i wore a bikini top in the pool . i haven't swam much lately. they really smell foul under neath. i can smell it through my clothes. I can rub it and dead skin flakes off.
I've been having an issue with very itchy and sore breasts. They itch so bad that I rub them until it leaves bright red places which looks like hickeys. They hurt really bad also. A year and a half ago I had a biopsy on a lump in one of my breasts. It turned out to be benign. The itching started several weeks ago. They don't look dry but I've put nonscented lotion on them several times with no relief. What can I do to get this to stop. I can't take it anymore.
I'm somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. Today, my breasts and in between them are very itchy, as well as my ribs near the center of my belly. Skin stretching already?
I'm going to be 7 weeks tomorrow my stomach is so itchy is that normal so early in my pregnancy
i have recently been getting itchy nipples, this occurs on both breasts and the itchiness comes and goes, it feels like hairs sticking in the skin. i haven't changed my washing powder or soap and there is no redness or lumps or any noticeable changes, the only thing different is the nipples are sore to press but only the nipples not the breast.
My belly and arms arve veryyyyyy itchy! Especially my belly! Is this happening with anybody else?
I have been itchy for the last few days, around my belly, underneath my breasts, and my legs and my back...i'm in my first trimester still, is this normal? i thought first it could be my tummy stretching but now i'm getting small rashes, is it from me scratching? i have no idea.
Ok. My breasts recently have been itchy beyond possible imagination. I've come close to making myself bleed from scratching so much and nothing has been helping. I have no idea what is causing it either. Is there anything I can use to help it? I've tried lotions and the like, but nothing helps and I don't want to put too many things on the breast/nipple area due to feeding.
