Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

It's difficult to say what this could be other than perhaps a hormonal cause. Women often get breast or nipple discomfort/itch due to their cycles or being pregnant (I know you are not the latter).

But it could also be something dermatological - perhaps from the bra you are wearing or your laundry detergent.

Can you describe the soreness to us - does it feel like an infection or is it a burning soreness or a dull pain?

Hi Anon

I suggest you see a doctor or dermatologist about this. It sounds like you need an exam.
