Lactating mother having itchy breasts. Pain while breast feeding. IS it thrush?

Hello. I am breast feeding & have developed very itchy breasts. I don t have any pain while breast feeding & my son doesnt have any problems latching. The itchy spots look like red streaks that are not raised bumps, just redness. The nipples are also fine. The only part that itches is the skin on the breasts. Could it be thrush or just caused from skin stretching?
