thank you for your query
i went through your query & i understood that it is due to dry skin in winters, as breast area is very sensitive it wil be itchy, apply moisturising agents for the area except the areola (nipple). for those erythematous lesions apply clobestol ointment, after it redues apply moisturiser regularly.

thank you
