Welcome to ehealthforum.
Burning and pain in nipples can occur due to dryness. If you have had a very hot water bath or shower, you can experience itching and pain in nipples. For relief from dryness you can put some moisturiser cream or oil based cream over your nipples.
If you are sexually active and have been having unprotected intercourse, it could also suggest possibility of pregnancy. In such a case look out for other symptoms suggesting pregnancy like: fatigue, nausea, breast tenderness, increased appetite, constipation and sleep. If these are present, report to your doctor for examination and confirmation of your pregnancy.
