In brief: An eczema- like rash
That persists after a few wks should be biopsies but it sounds like chapping.

In brief: Hopefully Not
Cracking nipples during breast feeding is often related to the minor trauma of feeding.
However in rare cases changes in the skin of the nipple can be related to a type of breast cancer called paget's disease. Have your medical profession examine you and monitor.
