First: First of all, please be sure that your mammograms are up to date. I would recommend that you see your regular doctor, gynecologist or a breast specialist to have a complete evaluation.

Both breasts very itchy underneath, sides. And near nipples. No rash. Both a little tender. What could cause this?
Hormonal /dermatitis: I would first suspect some type of allergic dermatitis, perhaps to a new laundry detergent, or some new clothing, towels, creams, perfume, etc. Also look at hormonal changes, and possibly a side effect from medication. Tenderness often accompanies menstrual cycle and pregnancy, which alter the hormonal conditions. If none of these seem appropriate and it lasts more than a few days, see your MD. ...Read more

Dry skin: It could be dry skin. Just like the rest of your body, your nipple also needs to get some moisturizer.
