Dry, Itchy patch on Areola

I just noticed a dry, itchy patch right above my nipple on my areola. I am constantly itching it. I do have eczema all over my fingers and on one of my wrists and on my lips (i finally found a chapstick with cortisone in it for my lips!). Could i be getting eczema on my nipple?? or is it probably just chapped from nursing? It seems to be right where her upper lip goes and is a round spot, like where her lip was.

what should i use on it? I have lansinoh still, should i try that, or some cortisone ointment?

I'd definitely try some lanolin, and maybe some good, old-fashioned breastmilk rubbed into the spot a few times a day. Let's see if those work.
