This is really bugging me! The itching is worse/more noticable when I'm not wearing a bra. I didn't think it was thrush b/c it's not just the nipple area but the rest of the skin too. And the nipples don't look any pinker than usual.

Try Lansinoh Lanolin for breastfeeding mothers. You can get it at almost any Wal-Mart or K-Mart type store. It only take a little bit.

Mine are itching, but just on the sides, it is really weird. I was trying to figure out if it may be my deterrgent, but nothing else is itching.

Yeah, but it's my third pregnancy, I wasn't really expecting to grow anymore! And it didn't happen in either previous pregnancy.

I just rub cream on them after I shower and hope that I can scratch privately during the day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

My sil had some major breast itching issues that turned out to be eczema. She let it go far too long and it became infected with yeast.<br><br>
Anyhow, i'd moisturize and let them breath and some people suggested the Lansinoh cream. That is a good cream, however, IIRC, it has lanolin. Which for some people with eczema is problematic. Cetaphil cream is good and doesn't contain lanolin. Also avoid harsh soaps and detergents.<br><br>
Good luck.
