Q: Constant scaly, dry nipples 3 months post BA?

Hi, I had breast augmentation 3 months ago in Thailand and everything went smoothly. However for the past month and a bit my nipples won't stop peeling and are constantly dry. I've tried baby lotion, oil, paw paw and lanolin but nothing seems to work. Is this normal? And when will it go a way? a month and a half now is quite long

A: Worthwhile to have a proper medical opinion to eliminate assumptions

Thank you for your photo and question. The image provided does not suggest anything unusual. However, I recommend you have a proper medical opinion with a reputable doctor in your home location. A proper history and physical examination is wise considering you had your surgery abroad and more details about your personal medical history and details of the surgical procedure should be reviewed.
