Dear ladygirl:  Skin on the breast is like skin anywhere else and is subject to a variety of abnormalities.  Sometimes, changing soap or detergent or new undergarments can cause such a reaction.  If you are concerned, you should have your doctor evaluate it for you.

After a mastectomy I read that while undergoing expansion that I should use cocoa butter on my "breasts"....when I went to the drug store they had the STRETCHMARK version along side plain old cocoa butter.  I figured if it worked for a stretching pregnant belly ..it should work for my new stretching boobs.  Well...long story short..IT DID NOT!  I used it twice and sit here tonight with a HUGE red itchy blistery rash all over my chest!  Skin on your chest/breast is just as suspectible to allergic reactions as anywhere else.  So, if I was you I'd try to think back 2-5 days and see if you used anything new during that period before you started itching...that will usually pinpoint the culprit!  Good luck.
