Please help-- My sweet daughter is 4 months old and so far I've not had any problems bfing. Suddenly at the end of December my aerolas got very itchy and my skin started flaking off! I naturally have dry skin - but nothing like this ever! I've been slathering Lansinoh on regularly, which seems to help, but has not resolved the issue.
I'm not using soap on them in the shower (nor have I in the past). My skin is so flaky sometimes that it is making me really itchy. I have noticed that my aerolas seem to be a brighter pink/red color sometimes and can get quite tender from chafing all of my skin off. My daughter seems not to notice anything different and is still happy to eat away -- she doesn't have any symptoms of thrush, etc.
Are all of my skin's natural oils gone??
Has anyone else had this problem? We don't live in a particularly dry area, but it is the winter -- I don't know if the weather has anything to do with it. Anyone know how I can get things back to normal!?
