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.
