    itchy boobs

    my boobs itch from time to time... specifically the tip around the nipple. it gets really itchy and i can't scratch it in public b/c it is really vulgar. why do boobs itch? i heard from somewhere that they itch b/c they grow. is that true? how can i ease the itch so i don't have to worry about scratching my boobs in public?

    I don't think itching has any correlation with growth. More than likely, your nipples are simply dried out, apply some lotion.

    I agree that it is probably a problem with irratated dry skin... but applying lotion directly to the nipple isn't recommended becuase it can clog the pores in the tip of the nipple, which lead to the milk ducts . I beleive i read somewhere that you can get liquid vitamin e capsules, break them open and rub that into the nipple. Double check with your doctor though i am not 100% sure.

    One other thought it may be from the material in your bra. I found that some types of lace really agravate my skin there and make me itchy. Try something all cotton and/or without a lacy cup.
