Mine were sooooooo itchy when I was pregnant. It's because they grow when you're pregnant, which you probably already knew. I was an A cup when I got pregnant and by the end of my pregnancy I was a D cup. I wore a sports bra, the ones with cups for extra support. They were the most comfortable for me. Baby powder helped with the itching some. Maybe the doctor could recommend something else. Good luck

It is because of them growing, that is why their itchy, and that is why you're getting stretch marks. Anywhere you form raw stretch marks, they will be itchy.

i had itchy breast too still do sometimes but you can try some calimine lotion (sp) or in other words anti-itch or maybe some allergy meds that your dr says you can take or speak with your dr oh cool things can help reduse some itching as well and make sure you give them some air sometimes keeping them cooped up can make them a bit more irritated good luck
