Hickey: A hickey is a discolored area on the skin that results when small blood vessels break under the skin, causing a type of bruise (purpura). The appearance will normally change in appearance and color over time. Small red dots (petechiae) may also appear. These types of injuries rarely scar, but may stay discolored for a fair amount of time. Cold compresses and Motrin or Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help pain. ...Read more
I got a hickey on my right breast yesterday. It's red and I can feel a slight lump underneath it which is painful when touched. Should I worry?
No: Give it time to relax, it is simply bruising and it is painful to the touch because of that. Just give it some time to heal and if it hasn't gone away or calmed down after awhile then I would see a doctor so they could prescribe you something to relieve symptoms. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more

A bruise: A hickey is a bruise. Biting or sucking the skin breaks tiny blood vessels and makes them bleed which causes a bruise. It won't cause cancer but it will take at least a week, if not longer, to heal up and disappear. And don't believe anyone who tells you toothpaste will make it heal faster! ...Read more

My boyfriend gave me a hickey for the first time on both my breasts, and was pretty rough with my nipples. Now it itches, the mark has gone away.
Set limits: Sexual behavior should be mutually delightful. You need to tell your BF what limits you expect. He probably does not know what your end points might be so you need to advise him. He may have his own limits. If he persists in overstepping what you are comfortable with, then you might consider another BF. ...Read more

I have a rash on the inner sides of both breasts that both look like giant hickeys. They do not itch or burn and d not have any texture?
The most likely:
Cause would be a candidal skin infection. It is a bit puzzling that it does not itch or irritate at all. A quick look by a physician is probably in order. Over-the-counter antifungal creams that are often recommended include clotrimazole (Mycelex), miconazole (Monistat), and tioconazole (Vagistat). This type of treatment can kill Candida and reduce the spread of the infection.

Observe: It can be observed a few days. If it is a blister or the like it will get better on its own. If it progresses then it could be ring worm if it is very round. That needs to be treated. Also think back it you may have bruised it somehow and that again can be observed. ...Read more

Don't let him: If you have let him know that you appreciate the affection but not the hickies that should be enough if he respects your needs.
