Cup Deteriorating After Two Uses?

Hi all,

I have been lurking in this community for a while, and it's helped me a lot.  I'm allergic to basically every disposable product out there; thank goodness I discovered menstrual cups so I don't have to suffer through that anymore.  Using info here, I ordered a small Lunette cup in July, then used it twice, once in September and again just the past few days (my periods are irregular, so I've only had two).

Yesterday, my period finished, so I took the cup out, cleaned it with water and rubbing alcohol, and put it back in its bag.  I noticed some odor issues, however, and tonight I decided to try to clean it again.  When I took it out of the bag, it immediately became clear to me that odor was the least of its problems.

It basically looks like the silicone is peeling off on the outside.  I'm perplexed: it was fine when I put it in the bag last night.  Has anyone else ever seen anything like this before?  Does anyone have advice on what to do?  I ordered it from Amazon, by the way; should I contact Lunette or the seller?  There's no way it's usable if it has bits of silicone flaking off of it.
