I think so, I think it has to do with dry air from the winter, heater etc. and the fact that they are growing, and hormones.  I'm only 10 weeks and mine are peeling a little.  I always put lots of lotion in the morning on my bbs (nipples included) and it makes it a little better.

So far I have this lanolin cream? it does help a bit with the peeling but they are still itchy like super itchy want to scratch them like there's no tomorrow LOL.   this is just my second time of application and so far peeling is a bit gone like I said but the itchiness is sometimes unbearable
