welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you had a pregnancy although ectopic there could be some breast changes and this can be a just due to dryness of skin or scaling of skin which is reverting to normal .If you have any itching or rash on it then it could be infection.If there is no itching please apply a moisturiser and it will settle ;but if it is infection then you may require to apply a antibiotic/antifungal ointment.Please see yourself what you have and do accordingly.
