I'm six months pregnant, and having problems with the areolas staying dry and itchy. I have tried baby oil, body butter, and vasoline on them but it does not seem to relieve the problems. Any advice of what to use?
During your pregnancy as your body starts to prepare for baby, you will notice changes in your breasts. Most women's breasts start to get larger. This can cause the skin, especially around the nipple and areola to stretch and become dry and itchy. Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin can help alleviate this dryness and itchiness. Try applying a small amount once or twice a day, particularly right after getting out of the shower.
