What causes itching on nipples?

Hi, my left nipple together with the areola itches and the nipple is always erect and hard compared to the other nipple. There are yellow patches on the same left breast and I sometimes have a burning sensation. Also noticed that the breast has stopped growing. I have used several oitments and drugs like lamisil, hydrocortisone etc and it is still the same.

Please get an ultrasound of breast done.
There might be a tumor developing underneath.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
