I am a 39 yr old female, for the last few days both of my nipples have been itching and driving me crazy. Sometimes it feels like the whole breast is itching but I feel it most in the nipples.
I get yearly mamograms due to breast pain but they have always been normal. Any ideas? Should I be worried??

It is difficult to give a confirmed diagnosis without a proper clinical examination. There fore, you should visit your doctor to get a firm diagnosis. Meanwhile you can try wearing lose clothes and anti-histamines to give you some relief.
