Several to try: I would advise an herbal salve to moisturize and soothe. You can try coconut oil, calendula in olive oil or as a cream, or an ointment made esp. For breastfeeding moms called Lansinoh. I also recommend a product called All Good Goop available at many health food stores:

Is there any procedure to grow chest hair?? any home remedy? Please suggest me. My age is now 25+

There really isn't: Topical minoxidil isn't very effective; it's pricey and you'd need to use it for life. About 5% of US guys are completely smooth, and also have thin beards and don't go bald. Many women say they prefer this, and many "hunks" shave there. Paul Newman, the first "ripped" actor, had zero chest. Your physical fitness, which is completely under your control, overrides where you do and don't have hair. ...Read more

Barnacles: If these are benign seb ks, no need to do anything. Occasionally they will flake off. Some wart removers and freeze off solutions work. Be sure if these get removed, you know what they are. If you remove a dysplastic mole or lesion you may miss a skin cancer. I would check again with your physician before self treatment. ...Read more
