Hello Wantykaryana,


Itchy breasts and nipples can be caused by the following conditions:

Mastitis
Friction with clothes

Contact dermatitis results from irritation or allergy to materials that come into contact with breast skin
Atopic eczema
Paget's disease
Breast cancer

For the time being, you can try to do the following tips to reduce itching:

Try not to scratch the itchy part
Cold compresses to reduce itching
Choose hypoallergenic detergents and soaps
Use a bra that is comfortable and the right size
Use a special breast moisturizer and be sure to clean the breasts before breastfeeding when using a moisturizer

If complaints of itching continue to recur or are accompanied by a lump, you should consult a doctor directly so that an examination can be done, either anamnesis, physical examination, or supporting examination with ultrasound and mammography so that the cause of the itching can be ascertained. After the cause of the itching is confirmed, your doctor can provide a more appropriate treatment for you. Avoid taking antibiotics without the advice of the treating doctor.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
