    Default red, itchy, cracked nipples...why????

    I'm quite embarrassed to ask this but just recently my breasts have become really itchy. They are red, itchy and peeling or what is probably known as cracked. i don't feel any pain whatsoever, i just want to know if this is common. could this just be a case of dry skin or is there something wrong???? also, i seem to have developed a rash underneath my breasts, how can i treat it?

    What you describe sounds a lot like thrush. Check out this resource, and this one from LLLI.
