Yes, oh I thought you were asking if I had them lol! I have used a cream for excema that worked wonderfully- cant remember the name. I think some people use baby oil and that works. I have kinda just been bearing with it because I am too lazy to go the drugstore!

I kind of was asking as i have them and was wondering what to use for them! I might try baby oil. Thing is, when i used something last time, the itching was worse!!

I just changed to a soft satin bra and that seems to be helping!

I had this for a while and kept using regular lotion (which did nothing). Then I got some proper nipple cream from the baby store. The brand is lanisoh http://www.amazon.com/Lansinoh-Breas.../dp/B000067DYG

It's kind of pricey but a little goes a long way and it really helped. No more dryness after a few days of use and now I only use it occasionally.

I have been using Bio-Oil and cocoa butter for the exact same problem. It's killing me! I moisturize them twice a day and that seems to help a bit.

Lansinoh really helped me too - was the only thing that stopped me wanting to scratch my nipples off at my desk at work!! I also found that a proper maternity bra was much better and reducing the peeling than my regular bras, but have no idea why ...
