Sory to see the tearing problems you are having. They shouldn't be doing that. Maybe J Dolls are more prone to tearing than TBL. I have only one J Doll. It is a V.3 mid bust seamless feet. I got it in 2017. So far no tearing problems. However the body is peeling in some areas in the same way as yours. I will try the baby oil. Sounds like a good idea. Just wasn't sure oil could be used on them. Thanks for the tip.I have revived using Johnson's baby oil on Jioau Doll peeling skin lately for a few such bodies and it seems to solve cleaning up the ugly peeling areas by rubbing the oil over the area.
