Re: Red, itchy spot on breast and breastfeeding
I had the same thing. It was eczema, which is a skin condition that is treated with a cortisone cream. It itched profusely, and after I nursed, I would apply the cream that was prescribed by the doctor. Before I nursed again, I had to make sure the cream was cleaned off so that my daughter did not ingest it.
There is a kind of breast cancer that makes your breasts itch, so it would be wise to get it checked out. It is not as prevalent as other breast cancers, but I would go to the doctor.
Hope this helps!
