    hmm i dont know what to say really, i usually just rub my stretch mark cream into my nipples whilst im doing my daily creaming :haha: and that gets rid of my itchiness as i spose its just a really good moisturiser... have you tried different creams or tried an oil?

    I would suggest using a really thick cream or oil since I apply mine twice a day and have no issues with itching. I know this is also easier said than done, but I'd advise against itching them since itching at the skin can increase the risk of stretchmarks. If it doesn't stop itching, I would talk to your doctor about it.
