Some causes of itchy breasts include:
Fungal skin infections such as tinea corporis or candidiasis
Bacterial infection of the mammary gland / mastitis
Irritation due to the use of bras
Fungal infections are the most common cause of complaints of itching in the folds of the body or in the area of the body that is covered. The presence of reddish spots, itching and sometimes accompanied by swelling can be a symptom of fungal infections. But other disorders such as mastitis, allergies or irritation can also be the cause. Ideally, a direct examination is performed to see the condition of the skin so that the exact cause can be known based on the clinical picture of the perceived complaint.
Associated with discharge from the breast, this can be a sign of normal and abnormal conditions. In women who are not married and not breastfeeding, the condition can also be called galactorea. Other conditions such as breast massage, sexual stimulation, high levels of the hormone prolactin, breast infections etc. can also trigger discharge from the nipple. Generally, a little enough fluid comes out without any other complaints. Beware if fluid comes out of the nipple with painful breast conditions, accompanied by bleeding, palpable hard lumps, skin changes around the breast such as orange skin / wrinkled, smelly, palpable lumps in the armpit area, etc. the possibility of breast cancer can occur.
Consult with your doctor directly to get information and a thorough examination related to your condition. Treatment depends on the cause found. If the cause is known to be a fungus, anti-fungal can be an option. However, if the known cause is a bacterial infection, antibiotics can help relieve symptoms.
To help reduce complaints, the following steps can be taken:
Avoid scratching too much on the itchy area
Avoid using bras or tight clothing
If due to irritation, use products that suit your skin
Choose bra material that is suitable for your skin
Maintain cleanliness of the skin by bathing 2x per day
Cold compress if swollen
Perform BSE checks (check your own breasts) regularly
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
