    Question super itchy nipples HELP ME! !!!!

    Hello everyone hopefully one of you can help me. I have been breastfeeding my daughter for 9 months now and have had zero problems untill last week. My nipples just started getting itchy so I started applying Lansinoh but now they are super itchy and I noticed I have cuts on the bottom portion of them and it is extremely painful to nurse. Any suggestions?

    Just another thought. I got really, really itchy nipples around 15 mo. postpartum, and posted here about possible thrush, and then a few days later my period started and it was clear that for me "sore" sometimes feels "itchy." Could it be AF?
