The skin on my breast, right under my breast and lower back is very thick and it constantly peels. When the skin is stretched on my back, like when I bend over it has a stinging itching sensation. If I dont put on lotion it feels this way all of the time. The skin, however does not itch on its own it just peels like when u get a sun burn. The only difference is that the skin look very thick and wrinkly. I always use lotion on these areas so I doubt that it could be dry skin. It mostly happens after I get my period, I think well I only noticed this trend this month. Can you please give me a clue to what this is?
