itching

This is the first time that I'm getting dried out nipples and being itchy. I have stuff for the dried areas, but is there a good way to get rid of the itching? Its all around the breast, and its getting irritating because I don't want to itch in front of people. Is there something I can get or do I just deal with it?

Did you change detergents or dryer sheets recently? Soaps you use in the shower? Can you go a day between showers? I would avoid anything that has alcohol or perfumes. Eucerin is good but it's thick and a bit greasy.

Omg I forgot that it happened to me too! I put lanolin on it and I think it helped. I remember putting baby powder between my breasts too

We've got the same detergent, and I normally only get a chance for a shower every couple days. I did notice that the dried out area is where the top of her mouth always is. The itching gets worse while she's nursing.

Patches on my boobs got SUPER dry the first few months and the only thing that helped was lansinoh. I used it every few hours and within a few days it was gone. If it popped back up, a little lansinoh and it was gone again.

It could be thrush.

If it's the nipple I would suspect thrush, if it's the entire breast I would look carefully at the products you use and foods you eat and try a good lotion.

It is more itchy closer to the nipple, but the entire breast gets itchy. I'm going to have DH pick up a good lotion for me on his way home.

Do you avoid soap on your nipples?If so only rinse with water on the nipples never rub in soap it will cause nipples to dry,crack and itch
