Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

Actually you are quite safe on 5th day of periods and now doubly safe since you took emergency contraception. The hormonal imbalance could be causing the dry skin. Apply a good moisturizer and see if it helps. Sexual foreplay with breast can also cause dryness and local antibiotic cream usually helps. If these two measures do not help, then please consult a skin specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!
