The past four weeks i have had dry, flakey and itchy skin around my nipples (and sometimes on my nipples). I eat well and have not changed my diet, i drink plenty of water and i have tried several creams to clear up the skin. I haven't changed body wash, soap or clothes detergent. The only thing out of the ordinary was my miscarriage 6 1/2 weeks ago, surely it can't be related! I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or has any idea what this could be from and how i can help it?

I'm guessing that it could be something to do with hormonal changes,a skin problem like eczema or an allergic reaction caused by a new soap,lotion or even the material in your bra.Also pregnancy could cause itchy nipples. The bleeding could be the result from scratching the nipple.Try not to do that,if possible, because you could easily get an infection.
