itchy nipples ? adult content

I am 53, post menopausal. Last breast exam was normal (about 6 months ago). Lately my nipples have been really itchy. I use a dye free fragrence free laundry detergent and don't use body lotions or perfumes there so I guess allergies is not the issue. Any suggestions?

  • This is gonna sound crazy but try some of the Lasinoh lanolin cream. I know you aren't breastfeeding, but chances are you just have some dry skin from the weather, new clothes, your soap, hard water, something.
