Hi - Sounds like you have a lot of issues going on with your breast They may be related, or may not. But since you see some swelling, redness, itching, and spots, it's worth getting it checked by a doctor, OK? Only a doctor can diagnose what's causing this, and prescribe a treatment. So make the call ASAP. Good luck - PJH
