Doctor

Thanks for the query.
The symptoms that you have described could be due to a problem in the blood flow. Venous obstruction can can itching and pain in the breast.
You will have to consult a surgeon for an examination and specific treatment.
Till then, drink plenty of water and stop allergic trigger factors.
Avoid nylon clothing, wear loose fitting clothing and cotton ones.
An antispasmodic medication may relieve pain.
Feel free to write back for further clarifications.
