Hi Anon,

Thank you for your question. Itchy nipples can be a symptom of dry skin, irritation, or an allergy. Some forms of breast cancer also cause itching of the breasts but this is usually accompanied by scaling of the breast, swelling, redness, dimpling, and/or pain. If you have any of the other symptoms along with your itchy nipples, please see a doctor to rule out the possibility of anything serious.

Best Wishes,
