Nipples peeling?

I had my baby on Sept. 3rd, I am not breastfeeding (I have never been able to produce milk, with either of my children), and this didn't happen with my first pregnancy, but all of a sudden my nipples are peeling. Badly! It's bizarre! Is this happening to anyone else? And does anyone have an idea why??

  • you could be leaking a little and not noticing it..and it could be drying up on your nipples and peeling

  • It's ALL OVER my nipples-- the whole dark circle, not just the tips.

  • Mine did this during pregnancy I don't know what causes it but I don't think it's harmful. If it hurts moisturize that's kinda all you can do.
