If it is peeling and smells I would recommend you check with your pediatrician. Otherwise cleaning the area after feeding and spit up gently with just warm water and possibly applying a barrier cream like desitin or some lansinoh may help, although I would check before applying anything if the skin is open at all. Newborns have very very delicate skin, so no soap should be used!!!
