Itchy nipples, white patches on areola, no relief with creams. Suggestive remedy?

I have very itchy nipples. The itching is driving me crazy, it feels like I m scratching the skin off! In the beginning I thought it might be due to the winter that my skin were dry, so I rubbed cream over - needless to say, it did not work! The blood-red lines of the scratching sits for long and my skin gets sensitive. I also have white patches on my areolas. Please advise!
