  • With my daughter it was eczema which just needs to be kept hydrated with a thick lotion. Check with your dr. You can always call and describe it to the nurse to see if they have any suggestions. They are used to new mom's calling and usually don't mind.

  • if you sat in water for 9 months your skin would peel off, too, after it dried out a little. don't pick at it, if it bothers you that much put baby oil or lotion on it.
