It all started September 2011, I noticed a red blotch on my left breast. I used the internet for information and it brought up everything about Inflammatory breast cancer. So I saw my doctor and she referred me to a breast surgeon. I saw the surgeon and she said no it's no IBC and told me to use cortisone cream. It ended up going away, until a few short weeks later I developed a raised red swollen patch on my right breast. They don't itch, hurt, burn or look rough. I used cortisone cream on it for several weeks and it wasn't going away, so I went and saw the breast surgeon again. She again said it's not IBC and she was referring me to a dermatologist. The Dermatologist too said it doesn't look like IBC and prescribed me Desonide cream, after several weeks of trying to get this to go away, the Desonide cream started helping and eventually took care of it.
In March 2012 I found out I was pregnant, at 14 weeks I got another raised swollen red patch on my right breast. I tried not to freak out and put some Desonide cream on it. It was gone within 2 days.
I'm now 20 weeks pregnant and the other day, the same raised swollen red patch appeared and in the same area on the right breast. I started using Desonide and by day 2, it's gone. My nipples and areola's are very tender, but that could be because I'm pregnant.
My Ob doctor said he'd do a biopsy if it was still there by my next appointment, it's already gone after 2 days of Desonide cream use.
I'm still riddled with Anxiety over this, I don't know what it is, or what is causing it. Everything points to Inflammatory Breast Cancer and I read that the redness can come and go.
So my question is, can Desonide cream cure an IBC rash/redness/swelling? Should I demand more testing?
