Jodie, please read our posts on nipple issues (including itchiness), and nipple discharge. An inverted nipple usually signals something growing in your breast, something pulling on the nipple to make it retract. It could be scar tissue; a long-standing, low-grade infection; or even breast cancer. Please put aside your anxiety and see a doctor about this; after 2 years, it's time to be responsible about your health: both for your own sake, and for your child's. Good luck - PJH
