Bleeding nipple

I moved from a coastal town to the Highveld 2 years ago and my skin reacted very badly to the change in climate. I was so dry and itchy that I scratched my one nipple open and it has never healed. In winter especially it bleeds and while my doctor says I shouldn' t be concerned surely it shouldn' t still be open 2 years later! What can I do to heal this? Thank you.

This sounds like a dermatological problem. I would suggest that you see a dermatologist.
