Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The itching you have over the nipple could probably be due to dryness.This is very common in winters and if not treated can lead to fungal infections through the cracked skin.

Do apply petroleum jelly over the cracked surface of the nipple this will reduce the dryness and itching subsequently.

Wish you good health
