Sore nips!

Red, itchy, dry nipples....does this sound like eczema??? I've been putting breastmilk, coconut oil and Shea butter on it. Any other suggestions?

When you take a shower and the water hits your boobs... How does that feel?

Are you keeping the nips dry? I know if I leak really bad and wear a damp bra for a couple hours my nips and skin on my boobs itches like crazy. Goes away after a couple of hours once I take the damp bra off.

That's a good thought actually! I lost my little cotton bandeau & have been wearing a regular bra the past week :/ that could totally be the problem!
