This is really bothering me. My left nipple is itchy and sensitive and has been this way for last few weeks. I have been putting special lotion for dry skiin on it and it hasnt made a difference. Anybody had this before? Really appreciate any help on this its driving me mad. Also my right nipple is fine. Im 20 by the way so been through puberty.

You have nipple-itus you need to keep on washing it to keep it clean...I advise you go to a real doctor though and get it diagnosed properly rather than listening to randomers

Just the one? Bit odd.

I was going to suggest irritation due to washing powder/bra rubbing but now...:erm:.
Have you tried a bit of Sudocrem on overnight? Works wonders for anything that itches.

I've had this before, you might have excma (sorry for the bad spelling). Go to the the doctor. Maybe try using creams to relieve it like sudocream or aqueous cream, and be careful of what soaps you use.

I know there are plenty of IDIOTS on this site, but this site can also be very helpful at times if the right people respond.

No infection, no discolouration.

I hope it's not fungus. Sometimes it could be an indication that your period is coming soon.

With that reply it's safe to assume that I am one of those sensible ones.
Thank you OP

How does it look? If it's inflamed, red, flaky, it's likely to be something like eczema or another skin condition.

You can get eczema at any stage in your life for whatever reason, so if you want a diagnosis, you'll have to see your GP.

The non-prescription creams and ointments will not do much if it's a bad outbreak. Generally, they don't help. Nipples are a separate type of skin as well, which means that you can't assume a general, overall cream or ointment will work.

I have eczema on both my nipples. It's a *****, but get it seen to before it starts weeping. Once it hits that stage, you'll have to get special pads to dry it out and whatnot before you can calm the outbreak. Believe me, it's sore and annoying.
