I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed a almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy also. Is this bad?

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed a almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy also. Is this bad?

If reacting to bra..: If skin reacts to a sticky bra's adhesive, or to the material in the bra, she can avoid using that brand of bra. For such an itchy rash, sometimes using a few days of over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream will help the irritated skin get back to normal. A mole in that location would itch too, but should also return to normal. Otherwise, one can get a primary doctor's or dermatologist's exam. ...Read more

I had a mole removed from my side back 12 days ago the stitches are now out its itchy and today I noticed a lump under scar is this normal? No pus

Probably yes: Site location, size (length), and what type of suturing was done will change was the site feels and looks like. Often, suturing under skin (dissolving type usually) will provide the lump you feel. It will take remodeling time for it to soften and lay flat. Itching is not uncommon, and often relates to swelling changes or irritation of surface by clothing/ointments, etc. Normal healing is months ...Read more
