    I'm 18 and I've always had flat nipples and the actual nipple has always been cracked and crusty, they come out slightly with stimulation but don't stay out and I've not found a cream to stop them from being cracked. is there a cream or something I could try to stop them being cracked?

    I'm 20 years old I have really small boobs and its embarrassing I need help

    Since I have started the menopause 2 years ago (I now no longer have periods, just hot flushes) I have found sex with my partner extremely painful. It doesn't hurt inside, it just stings outside around the entrance to my vagina almost as if the skin is going to tear and feels a bit like when you have cracked lips - it's it's fine until you stretch the area and then it splits slightly and starts to bleed. It's not dry like cracked lips though. i've tried lubrication but it doesn't help. My partner is being very understanding but I am getting very frustrated and upset.

    I too have had this problem and much stinging after sex. I found that using a lubricant made it less uncomfortable, there's one you can get that lasts a few days from one application which is better than having to interrupt proceedings. But I think it would be best to see your GP about bleeding, just to reassure yourself that the problem is delicate skin. Hope this helps.

    Hi I.m 30 and have had a breast enlargement. Everything went well it was done 5 months ago. Over the last month or so my nipples have become really dry and flaky they feel all cracked, I still have no sensation since my op I know this can be normal. There is no pain really just a slight ache very rarely. Is this normal for them to be so cracked and dry?

    Hi there, I'm 16, never had intercourse, and I have had eczema in the past, a couple years ago eczema used to manifest its self during the winter on my joints such as arms and legs. However, recently it has gone away, but in my genital area, parts of my skin has started to become red, cracked, itchy, and on the sack, quite flaky. When the skin flakes off, the patch of skin swells slightly, goes red and some form of liquid is coming out as well, it's completely transparent, and not a lot comes out. Only a tiny amount in say, about 10 minutes, then it stops, and just becomes very itchy. I do masturbate daily, would it help if I stopped for a while, or if there's anything else I could try? Thanks

    the ball's of my feet are cracked, very dry and very sore, I cut off the skin that i can lift up and file with a pumice stone.that works for about 2 days and then the cracks reappear it usually happens on holiday and I thought it was the heat. Now it is there all the time and when i catch the skin that has cracked its very painful. its nowhere else just on the balls. I put oilatum cream and oil on to keep my feet from being very dry but doesnt seem to work.

    I have excema too and I found this amazing product on the market at the moment called Moogloo, its a range and they have a scalp cream which you put on before you wash ur hair and it really soothes ur scalp and lifts any dry dead skin. def try it worked for me.

    I use Eumoceam to prevent it as it keeps my skin soft and benovate when I have flare ups which is prescription I also take a piriton when I feel all itchy and that seems to solve it !

    Hi Anita, it was my mum who was on the show. She had started treatment which was a tablet called Aceterin. Which really made a massive difference, but there are alot of side affects. She had cracked lips, cracked eyelids, itchy skin, skin falling off her hands. She was only on the treatment for two weeks when it was stopped as they thought she had lymphoma, but it turned out to be sarcoidosis. Also at the time they found a massive ovarian cyst, so she has just had that removed. So when she is recovered we can hopefully start back on the tablets but a smaller dose. Dont give up, my mum was told there was nothing else the docs could do. Thats why we put her onto the show. Hopefully in the future it works for her and yourself. xx

    i am 15 and for about 4 years i have had strangely cracked nipples with small amounts of dried yellow stuff inside it which is also cracked, i have not yet had sex but i am worried that it would be a shock to the lad if he thought i was weird for it. What should i do?

    I've had mine foe 18mths,for no reason I have been feeling really quite uncomfortable,it feels really tight,can hardly eat,what caused yours to crack?

    Hi, i recently got very badly burnt on my shoulders and the skin blistered. It was so bad i was unable to lift my arms or wear a top. I used acriflex and it's starting to heal, but the skin is really dry and cracked, I keep rubbing savalon on it to try to keep it moist but it just doesn't seem to sink in. And when it's dry it rubs against my clothes and becomes very itchy and sore. Should I just leave the skin to peel away by itself or should I "help" it along? Also are there any better creams to help it?

    Hi there I am white and also have this problem. I have worn concealer since I was 14 and I am now 31 and my skin is very dry and cracked as a result. I would love to know if there is any surgical cure because I have tried most things. I have heard of someone using cream to lighten the pigmentation of the skin elsewhere on the body, but not sure if it can be used on eyes?

    When you say excema? Is that medically proven or are you just talking about dry skin? If its the case of dry flaky skin, It may be that you penis is growing and building new skin which is not uncommon at 14. I recall being 14 myself and having very dry cracked skin on my penis while it was growing. My suggestion is if it is getting uncomfortable, go to the doctor. Also, many soaps are too harsh. the penis doesn't need soap, just warm water. I hope it helps.

    hi i have a semi serious issue that includes phimosis but is cause by when i researched about it a condition called Balanitis xerotica obliterans which for anyone that might be suffering it is this white skin clumps on your foreskin which looking at your skin colour looks more pale and as if itd dehydrated cracked skin that forms ontop of the penis. does anyone know a non circumcistion method? ive seen people talk about creams. id love for some help in curing this problem. thanks
