My breasts and nipples have been sore since the very beginning, but I have recently noticed (after showering) that the skin on the top of my nipples is extremely broken and it is peeling. Doesn't look or feel that pleasant.
Is this a common thing?
I wear bras that do not irritate the skin, so I don't know why this is happening.
I'm not positive about them peeling... Mine are super sensitive and they hurt a lot in the shower. I know in What to Expect When You're Expecting they said that happens a lot while breastfeeding, but I'm not positive about during pregnancy. Hope it gets better. Sounds really uncomfortable. =(
Try using some olive oil on them hun (yes the kind u cook with) it's a great skin moisturiser especially for extreme dryness. You can also try jojoba oil though I don't know if you'll find that as easily.
