In brief: Itchy breast

Most causes of breast itch are fairly mild and should not be a cause for concern.
However, your health care provider should evaluate itching that is sudden, severe or unusual. Itching caused by a serious food allergy can come on rapidly with a strong need to scratch. Other causes include: allergies, eczema, infections, and rarely inflammatory breast cancer.
