Just that. She says it's been driving her nuts all day. Told me at 10pm and because she needs to sleep and I don't want her worrying I've told her it's normal for now.

Does anyone know if it's common during puberty? Just one of those weird things the body does, etc? The Internet isn't helping meconfused

Is she starting to develope? It could be skin stretching and feeling itchy.

Yes, she is. That could be it.

Thanks, I'll see how it goes.

Could try moisturiser maybe moisturising body wash.

Strange question but does she have a school polo shirt with an embroidered badge on it? Only my friends dd found when she started developing the back of the badge irritated her as everything was more sensitive iykwim. She solved it by wearing a crop top under her shirt.

She does Who but she wears bras now so that shouldn't be irritating.

Thanks anyway.

Does her bra have any irritant, like a seam going across the nipple?

Not sure, will check.
