Get it checked : You are describing the beginning of an infection (swelling and soreness). For this you applied the right remedy. If the soreness resolves within 24 -48 hours you are fine. However if this is getting worse, or you develop additional symptoms like redness, drainage, pus, fever, and chills, then you are developing a more serious infection and need to be seen by a health professional right away.

Various causes!: Nipple itching can have serious underlying causes. Therefore one should be evaluated by a physician. The history and physical should lead one to a cause and determines further work up or treatment. An example of a serious cause is paget's dz, a rare breast cancer form. Less serious are benign breast tumors, skin dz like atopic dermatitis, mechanical causes like "joggers nipple.".

Treat the Cause!: Generalized itching has many causes. If you want longterm relief see a physician and be evaluated. Skin issues like dry skin, but also internal diseases like of the liver or kidney may cause this. Finding the cause determines the treatment. Treatments include medications, like antihistamines (diphenhydramine, wet- dressings, cool baths/showers, light therapy, and otc or rx anti-itch products.
