    It may be a bit of eczema which is quite common on nipples. I expect they are painful because the skin has dried and cracked. Dont use any soap or shower gel on them while they are like this. Try to smooth some vaseline/petroleum jelly in to them before bed every day. Make sure you only wear cotton next to your skin. Man made fabrics can be hard and scratchy on sensitive areas like this. If you can get a 1% hydrocortisone ointment from your chemist/pharmacy that will help and can be used in place of the vaseline, but only use it for two weeks and no more. If none of this helps then you should see your doctor .
