Answer

Although it's theoretically possible to get IBC (inflammatory breast cancer) in both breasts, it almost never happens that way. In fact, having the same problem in both breasts is usually a good sign because it means that the underlying cause is almost certainly not cancer. Cancer also doesn't go away with a cream. If the cream the doctor gave you isn't working for the rash on the top of your breasts, you might want either to check back with the first doctor if he or she hasn't seen the new rash, or make an appointment with a dermatologist. Rashes can be difficult to diagnose, and dermatologists are the rash experts. I think your rash will turn out to be a problem that is annoying, but not serious. However, getting it diagnosed properly is important because it's usually easier to get rid of a rash if treatment is started promptly, and sometimes a rash is a symptom of some underlying health condition that needs to be addressed. I hope you soon get good news from the doctor.
