Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Nipple itch can be cause by allergies, inflammation or physical irritation.  Also, detergent, soap and dry skin can cause this.  Anytime you feel a lump, it's important to get checked by a doctor.  It might not be anything serious.  But through a physical examination and imaging test, he can give you a diagnosis.
