This sounds more like some sort of skin infection than breast cancer.  If home remedies don't work to clear the spots up, you'll want to check with a doctor.  How alarmed would you be if this problem was on your back or your tummy?  That might be a guide to whether this is serious enough for you to call a doctor right away, or try an over-the-counter medicine.

It sounds like to me that you have boils, there larger then your adverge pimple. But get them check. If there boils there is stuff the doctor can get you. Good luck
