There is this stick you could try,we bought it at the pharmacy and it helps against chapped skin. I cant remember the name of it. But maybe go ask at a pharmacy what would be best to put on it. If i remember or find the stick i will write the name of it.

I would try putting a very strong barrier cream on it to see if that helps - something like vaseline or lansinoh. They're messy, but will get results fast. A lot of lotions aren't overly effective.

And if it still doesn't improve I would have a doctor look at it because it might be a symptom of a larger issue.
