Help me! I am going to scream!!

My nipples have been itching so much. They are so dry! I have tried all kinds of lotion and none of them work. They have worked for my belly. Is there anything that I can use while I am pregnant because I know scratching is not good. Please if anyone can please help me.

  • Do you have any oil or neosporin? Mine started flaking. Weirdest thing. But I keep belly butter around just in case. It's great for your skin.

  • your breast are getting ready to produce milk so your skin and milk ducts are being stretched , now in my case this happened with my 2nd and the only relief I found was either cold compresses or hot wash cloths on them ,also try to drink a lot of water keeping your self hydrated helps.

  • bag balm=what they use on cows to keep their udders from getting sore from being milked. Its an ointment that comes in a square green tin with a lid. If you can't find it in a drug store, check your local farm supply store.

  • I would stick to natural oils. A lot of the commercial stuff has alcohols and other drying agents -- read labels! I use raw shea butter or virgin coconut oil.
