Dry nipples, itching, liquid oozing out, sensitive nipples. Any ideas?

My nipples were dry and I itched them so much that I might have scratched them raw. They are really sensitive now and clear liquid is oozing out which gets annoying everytime it dries and becomes crusty. Is is getting worse? Whats going on? What can I do? Im a bit worried. They say it might be caused by or if you have enzemza and that is a condition i have.

Hi,
It seems that you might be having dermatitis or some allergy to synthetic bra.
Apply steroid containing cream on nipple.
Keep nipples moisturized.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine for itching.
If require go for one antibiotic medicine to control infection after consulting your doctor.
Ok and take care.
