Why do my nipples itch?

ITCHY NIPPLES

Pruritis
CHANGE YOUR SOAP TO A MILD CLEANSER LIKE CETAPHIL. CHANGE YOUR LAUNDRY DETERGENT TO ALL-FREE & CLEAR. DON'T USE ANY CREAMS OR LOTIONS ON YOUR CHEST. SOMETIMES COTTON SHIRTS CAN CAUSE THIS, PARTICULARLY IF YOU RUN OR WORK OUT. THIS IS KNOWN AS "JOGGER'S NIPPLES."

Why do my breast & nipples itch?

Varies

Itch
Depending on where you are in your cycle, that problem can be explained by an increase in progesterone. After ovulation, the progesterone levels begin to rise. The level increases until just before time for the period. The increased progesterone can cause nipple pain, nipple cold or heat sensitivity, and nipple itching.

Why do my nipples constantly itch a year after giving birth to my first child?

Dermatitis

Chest-breast-nipples
About all I can think of is dermatitis, irritation. Launder and wash body with a mild soap and perhaps try hydrocortisone cream for a week or two

Usually nothing

The areola is innervated by the nerve from the back area considered as T-4. If no rash is present this should be evaluated and treated.

NIPPLE ITCH

Contact_dermatitis
HOW LONG? IT SOUNDS LIKE A CONTACT DERMATITIS. IT COULD BE A NEW SOAP OR DETERGENT. IT COULD BE A NEW SHIRT OR BLOUSE OR SWEATER. BE A DETECTIVE.

If no rash is present, would look at your at your back as the areolar region is nerve innervated by T-4.

That either the fabric is irritating, the detergent is irritating or you have an infection brewing. Best is to be seen by a doctor if it does not go away with changing the first two things I mentioned.
