My first TMI question...

I'm desperate for answers!

Since day one, I've had breast tenderness as most women do, I was waiting for 12 weeks thinking it would subside...and at 12 got WORSE Chat Icon

I'm 17 weeks now and can't even TOUCH my nipples, they are dry, cracked pealing, ITCHY (but I can't scratch because I can't touch them)...and sometimes my bra rips off the dry skin and then it's raw.

I've tried lotions, baby oil, exfoliating in the shower the best I can....I've bought nipple cream (like you use when you breast feed)...and nothing seems to be helpingChat Icon

Has anyone experienced this? Experiencing this? Or have any remedies?

Re: My first TMI question...

sorry you are dealing with this. Seems like you tried everything/and OTC remedies. I would suggest make an appt to see your derm asap. I exhausted all efforts with my chest and back acne, and just gave in and went to see the derm. He/She will rx you a mild steroid cream perhaps, and hopefully you will see some relief. Just clear the Rx with your OB first. Most mild steroids are safe during preg. I've been on 3 now, and my dr ok'd them all.
