Breast Redness: This depends on a few things. How long have they been there? Are they painful or itchy? Is there a hard area underneath? Where on the breast are they located? If they've only been there a short time, don't hurt or itch, and aren't hard underneath, waiting it out may be appropriate. However, if you're concerned, getting to a doctor that can see the spots is best. ...Read more

I have red spots on my body at night. They it's terribly and appear on my breasts neck&arms. Help?

No fun!: Skin problems can be a real challenge without actually seeing the rash. In general, rashes are diagnosed based on their size, shape, color and distribution. The age of the patient and their medical history are also very important. In your case, I would be curious to know if you have recently switched to a different laundry soap for your bedding. On the safe side, i'd get it looked at by your doc. ...Read more

Itchy Breast: Paget's disease of the nipple is a rare form of breast cancer and on the surface, has the same symptoms of nipple eczema: crusty, scaling rash with the sensation of burning and itchiness. It usually occurs on just one nipple, so if the rash on just one nipple persists, it is best to get a thorough exam for the peace of mind.
