Have itchy, dry breast, painful, back pain, taking evening primrose, no relief. Permanent cure?

I have had very itchy, dry breast for almost eight months. They can also be quite painful at times, also get upper back pain. Been to my GP and he examined me and said they were fine to moisturise them.

Tried changing washing conditioner -nothing seems to alleviate the itch.

Taking evening primrose for breast pain had a mamogram 2 years ago due to breast pain which was clear.

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. You are probably suffering from eczema, which manifests as itching and dry breasts. For this you can try using steroid cream. For fibroadenosis, which is causing pain, you can continue using primrose and add a vitamin E capsule.

Hope you get well soon.
