    Itching Nipple
    47froggie2010 posted:
    My left nipple is itching all day long off and on. No scabs. No bleeding or discharge. No rash. Just itching. I just found out by my gynecologist that I am in menopause and heard from other sources that the itching could be caused by menopause. My GYN said she has never heard of that before. What else could it be?

    I had itching for no apparent reason once. I just put lotion on it every night and it eventually went away.
