hello.. welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum’.
the cracks n dryness of the nipples can be due to severe dryness of the skin..
apply olive oil to prevent the itching and dryness..
do not clean the nipples with soap as it leads to further dryness
wishing you good health..

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
This is called NIPPLE DERMATITIS...a kind of allergic reaction of nipples...apply a moisturizer cream along with a mild steroid cream like hydrocortisone cream....also take an anti allergic medicine like cetrizine (10mg) daily for 7 days...If cuts are deep then also take any antibiotic tablet like azithromycin(500mg) daily for 3 days...It would be good to consult a dermatologist for above prescription.
take care,
