Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The fact that you have already taken a course of anti-fungals and also antibiotics with nystatin, this lesion around nipples doesn't appear to be fungal at all and neither bacterial, as it has failed to respond to antibiotics as well. This seems more of a contact dermatitis which can present with inflammation, itching and increased sensitivity with often scaling. It is likely to be benefitted with steroid cream application.
The picture which you claim to have attached cannot be viewed at this end, so you may contact the website and upload the picture of the lesion through them so that a better diagnosis and opinion can be offered.
This if allergic in nature can be due to likely brassiere material which can be polyester yarn mixed. Hence advised to switch to cotton ones and try to keep the area moisture free.
Please send the photographs for purview.
Wishing you speedy recovery,
