RED BUMP ON CHEST: WITHOUT ACTUALLY SEEING THIS RED BUMP, THERE IS NO WAY OF TELLING WHAT IT IS EXACTLY. IT MAY BE A PLUGGED UP OIL GLAND, LIKE A ZIT, DUE TO PRESSURE ON THE SKIN FROM THE BRA. IS IT A NEW BRA PERHAPS? If it persists, see your M.D. MEANWHILE COMPRESS IT WITH WARM WATER AND APPLY ANY ZIT MEDICINE AT BEDTIME. CHANGE YOU BRA.
