Eczema or other , : Dear patient This is a difficult one to answer virtually due to 2 things - always with breast issues we like to be sure there is no malignancy so we need your age and mammogram status to answer this - therefore best to see a doctor to palpate the breasts and check no lumps and in terms of the rash it may be fungal or inflammatory -eg eczema so when the doctor checks breasts they can check rash

Breast +armpit exam: You need to go in for a physical consultation, so that you can get a proper examination of the breast, nipple and armpit .It is also important to compare the two breasts on examination. If nothing wrong is found in terms of breast health,then the doctor will be able to prescribe something to stop the itch.
