What to do if I have a red spot on the side of my breast. Is this ibc?

NO!!!!: Inflammatory breast cancer is a very rapidly enlarging redness of the breast in one spot, rapidly spreading across the whole breast, and sometime parts of chest or back. Unlike an abscess, which is a local pocket of pus, is usually not painful. Other causes are a benign skin growth, or pimple. See a good breast surgeon right away! Good luck! ...Read more

I've had a brown/red spot under my breast for awhile and now it has a hole on the side that you can see into and bleeds. Wondering what this could be.

Unusual skin lesion: Definitely needs to be looked at by a physician and perhaps biopsied even. There are many types of skin lesions that could look like that, but the hole and bleeding concerns me. Please make the appointment and do not delay. Hopefully, it is some kind of a sebaceous cyst and not something worse. Difficult to tell without seeing it. An uploaded picture in a private consult would be instructive, too. ...Read more

2 weeks ago I noticed a red spot with a lump on my left breast. Feels warm Since then the redness has went away but the small lump hasnt.

Small lump: As described, it sounds like you had a localized abscess or type of localized infection (with the redness, palpable lump, and warmth). Since the lump is still there, you need to have it evaluated to be safe to assure it does not need antibiotics or to assure it is not something more serious. Best wishes. ...Read more

Should I get checked for a red spot on my breast I think it might of been a bee that almost stung me. It hurts a lot when I move sometimes?

Wait, then go: If you think it was caused by a bee or insect, then the area should slowly get better in time, try ice immediately if swelling after a sting, then warm compresses and Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for pain. If the rash persists, and does not go away, then seek medical evaluation of the area. Good luck. ...Read more

Hemangioma: Little red fits in the skin anywhere are likely to be hemmangiomas. These are very common and if no consequence. They usually last a long time like a mole. If you push I it then it will blanch when the blood goes out and refills immediately. They can be removed if they are larger. See your doctor to be sure. ...Read more

The same: The lotrimin (clotrimazole)s (clotrimazole) you describe should work the same. Very common area to get a yeast infection, under the breast, I used to get them all the time when I was in my 20's there. The medication in regular lotrimin (clotrimazole) should work fine. ...Read more

I have a dark red spot on my breast which itches at times and if pushed, is sore. It appeared 20 days ago and has not spred. I was prescribed amoxicillin, and applied muprirocin no changes. Now 2 days using steroid cream and it seems worse. Ibc?

Stop steroid!: If it is worse after using the steroid, it is either a yeast infection, or a bacterial infection that is worsening. I suspect yeast, because antibiotics did not help. But I can't say that for sure, and you need to call your doctor today and ask what to do, since your doctor examined the rash, and I have not. If you have fever, rapidly increasing pain, warmth, or red streaks, get seen STAT. ...Read more

5 month old baby has a circular red spot about the size of a pea on his chest for about 4 days. Not getting larger or fading. Should it be reviewed?

Red mark: Is it flat or raised, does it fade with pressure? It could be a hemangioma flat or strawberry, they are benign vacular skin conditions, flat hemangiona fade away with time, strawberry hemangioma tend to get bigger then they start to shrink. It is best if you show it to your pediatrician during the next well visit. It can also be an insect bite, or pressure mark from a button or a snap. Good luck ...Read more
