Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

I doubt taking a bra off quickly would cause nipple pain - I can't see how that would happen.

Nipples can itch for many reasons - clothing, laundry detergent, friction...

It could also be hormonal since many breast conditions can be caused by hormonal fluctuations.

You may also have an infection.

If you pain does not end soon, consult your doctor.
