Re: my boobs are itching all the time

Where is the itch? Under the breast?? Are your breasts large. This could be an issue with dry skin..........excema.........or from sweating. Sometimes when women have large breasts they tend to sweat underneath, which can cause itching. Have you switched soap, laundry soap or lotion? Also do you have sensitive skin? OR..........does it itch all over? This is what comes to mind..........if it continue's i would make an appt with a dermatologist.

Re: my boobs are itching all the time

I had this problem. It was a yeast infection. It's the same kind that you get down south. Eat lots of yogurt (the kind with live active cultures) and take oral acidophilus.

It was from going to the gym then running to the grocery or stopping off to do other errands. My bra didn't feel wet but I guess it was casue I got a yeast infection on my breasts. I made my nipples bleed from scratching so hard. I put the cream on my breasts that comes with the cream you insert. What a relief that was. The itching stopped.

Excema as stated could be the culprit too. Or maybe your skin is just dry and needs lotion.

Good Luck

Re: my breasts are itching all the time

It does sound like a yeast infection to me also. It is also really easy to pass back and forth if you breast feed a baby. You can also use over the counter lamisil foot creme.(if you are breast feeding a baby check with your Dr though-there are special persription cremes that are safe) Make sure you change your bra everyday and wash it in hot water. Also don't use the same towel twice-things like that can reinfect you.
