I am having itchy nipple with yellowish spot on them, is this Paget Disease ?

for about more than 2 months my right nipple has been itching and sometimes burning and hurting and is harder than my left one. The left nipple has never itched or anything though. Both nipples have big yellow ish spots on them, and my right nipple is darker than my left one and has little red spots. The skin around both nipples are lighter, and they seem to be looking worse. The skin around my right nipple is pealing off. I ve done research on paget disease and saw pictures and it sounds kinda like it. Could it be that?

Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
paget disease is an eczema like malignant condition of the nipple associated with underlying infiltrating cancer of the breast. from your history it is possible that you might be having it but for confirmation you have to visit a surgeon without delay, who will also guide you for further management as per the diagnosis.
Best wishes for your health.
