Post breast reduction, rt nipple is itching
You did not say whether you had feeling in your nipple. If you do not, the itching may be a return of sensation. If you do have feeling in your nipple, it is hard to say from you picture what the problem is. I would make an appointment with your plastic surgeon. This could be some type of eczema. In the meantime I would try some 1% hydrocortisone cream.

Try RX given steriodal creams first. If no help than PRP injections might improve or PIP injections for sensory cutaneous never injury.
