Breast rash: Would also consider funga/bacterial infection. Try bacitracin in AM monostat in PM. , Rarely it can can a type of cancer Pagets disease of breast.Would follow up with dermatology for biopsy. Note this disease is usually in women over 50 so it is very unlikely in a 25 year old but you don't want to miss anything. F/U with dermatology
