Dear, I would recommend you wash the site with mild soap and water and pat dry. Leave your bra off when you can; of course you will need a bra on when going outside your home. When you wear your bra, cover the site with a piece of gauze or bandage to catch the drainage.
You can try an OTC corticosteroid or topical Benadryl on the site and see if that helps the itch, but I really hate advising this because I don't know exactly what you are dealing with. You can always go to your local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist his/her recommendations.
