Itchy nipple

Hi I' m 57 &  almost every morning as I wake up my right nipple starts itching &  gets worse the more I scratch. No discharge, no lumps, just a little scaling. Within an hour it' s ok again. Anything to worry about?

Hallo Marilyn
There is a type of breast cancer that looks like an Eczema ( Paget's disease) so rather let your doctor have a look?

I had the same problem a week ago. Went to Dr. She gave me Mylocort cream, worked within 2 days, scaling itching gone. Best to follow Dr. Bets advise, but until then, if you have some Mylocort put it on.
