I'm 23 years old and female. On my right nipple (since February of 2008 and since joining a gym) I've experienced EXTREME itchiness. I wasn't hygenic and hardly cleaned my sports bra and didn't shower right away either. At first, it occurred every now and then. The past two months or so, it's become unbearably itchy, especially when i first wake up and then spontaneously throughout the day. In these past two months it has also started peeling and developed a dryness. When I wake up in the morning it's the worst. I have already went to a breast doctor for this and there's no lumps or anything in my breasts and he didn't think there was much I could do. I've tried lotion, bacitratine and lotrimin, the anti-fungal cream and nothing makes it go away. It might stop it for a little while but I just want this to go away. My other nipple, just recently, like a week ago started itching as well but not as badly and no dryness or peeling. Could it be fungal, an infection or eczema?
