    Well, like I said, this is a weird question...but it has been driving me crazy for three days now!
    One (only one!) of my boobs is constantly itchy. Driving me mad trying to resist the urge to scratch it all day.
    What is going on? is this common? More importantly, will it go away?

    Sorry girls, I know there are way more important concerns out there, but if anyone has experience they'd be willing to share, I'd really appreciate it!

    This can be quite common and its so irritating, both of mine are itchy lol.....It should go away, I think sometimes its just there while they are growing lol.....

    I've had itchy boobs and nipples as well. One time I absentmindedly itched it until I had bad looking red marks on my left breast! I couldn't believe it. I put lotion on it though (not my nipple) and it seemed to be a lot better! Might have been a fluke though!

    Invest in a huge tub of Aqeous Cream! I was using Palmers Cocoa Butter then came out in a really bad itchy rash (so much so i was sent for blood tests to rule out liver problems!) and the doctor told me to use an oily calamine lotion (aqeous calamine) then once it was gone use normal aqeous cream. It is great and as long as I remember to apply it a couple of time a day I am not itching at all.

    I've had an itchy nipple....one of my nips is very dry too, I was going to get some breastfeeding cream (seen as I'll need it anyway!) and see if that helped! Just keep moisturised and hopefully it'll ease the itchiness!! :)

    I've started to get itchy boobs, and my bellys starting to itch a bit.

    and about the growing thing, part of me hopes so, considering I was 32A before I became pregnant :rofl:
