What does it mean when your boobs itch? My mom always told me not to scratch them cause it would leave marks. She would also say that it meant they were growing.

Your opinion is greatly appreciated. Thanks

EbonyBlossom agony auntCould well mean they're growing as the itching sensation could be caused by stretching of the skin. Pregnant ladies get itchy bellies as they expland because the skin stretches. If not maybe you've had a reaction to the material in one of your bras? Or you've been bitten by a knat?

Good advice from your Mom. Growth can cause itching, and scratching is almost always harmful.

There are a lot of things that can cause itching. Generally it is better to attack the cause than the symptom. Dry skin can cause itching, the answer is to moisturize. Clogged pores can cause itching, buffing with a dry towel will relieve this. A minor injury can cause itching, it is best to wait this out, hydrocortisone cream helps this as well as bug bites. If your nipples are itching you may be lactating a tiny bit, a through washing will help that. If you can't find a reason for the itch, Aveeno makes an oatmeal based bath soak the will help almost any skin condition. If the problem is chronic (comes back very frequently) you should probably have a doctor look into it.

A female reader, United Kingdom +, writes (16 April 2010): agony auntThis actually happened to me not so long ago. It depends how itchy they are. If they only itch when you have sspecific bras/tops on, you could be allergic to the material, or, if it itches whenever you have clothes on, you may be allergic to the fabric conditioner used in the laundry (like me).

It is hard to give a definite answer without knowing when they itch, etc.

Feel free to message me back if you want any further advice.

Hope this helped.

cnith agony auntAs far as I know it means they itch. Like when your butt or arms itch. It doesnt mean anything more than that.

And unless you're scratching with jagged glass, no marks are left. Scratch away. :)
