Skin on breasts is peeling off

Strange yes? I happened to do a quick sweep of my breasts before hopping in teh shower today and I noticed the left one is peeling badly underneath and also around the nipple. It looks exactly like the way skin would look when it's healing from a sunburn. And with pressure it flakes right off. The right one is starting to do the same now, but not as badly as the left one.

I'm assuming this is a simply a situation of dry skin?

Hi. Yes, this has happened to me before in the winter time. I just assumed it was dry skin when after putting moisturiser on it was better.

Re: Skin on breasts is peeling off

If it is happening on both nipples it may just be dry skin but go to a dermatologist and have them check it out. I had that on one nipple but it never responded to treatment by the dermatologist and it turned out to be cancer! There are two forms of cancer that can appear in this manner. One is a skin cancer called Bowen's disease and the other is a breast cancer called Paget's disease. Please don't ignore this like this as I did for over a year.
