can inflammatory breast cancer rashes be close to the armpit?

See below: Inflammatory breast cancer does not present as a rash. It is a rare form of aggressuve breast cancer that presents as a diffuse red swelling of the skin of the breast. The red swelling could also extend toward the axillary area. See a doctor right away if you are concerned.

Yes: But the armpit is also a very common place for both abscesses and fungal overgrowth. If you do not have access to a doctor, you might try warm compresses and three times a day antifungal cream for a couple of days. If it does not go away or start to drain, see a doctor. Good luck, .
