Thanks for your query .
As you describe it can be a yest infection.
Hence you should follow some tips:
Change your underwear and they should be cotton
Wash your breast with warm water and dry them
Use over the counter creams for yeast infection ,but also contain hydrocortizone

If itchy do not relive by use of these tips please get a breast examination.

All the best
