Red Itchy Bump Under The Surface Of The Skin On My Breast. No Pain Or Draining Just Red & Itchy.

For a little over 2 weeks now I've had asmall red, itchy bump just under the surface of the skin on my breast. It is not painful or draining fluid, it is just red and itchy about the size of a pencil eraser. Any Idea what this might be and if I should see my DR.

Answer

There are so many possibilities for what might be causing this red spot that I wouldn't want to guess. This article about some common breast rashes may give you some possibilities, but if it doesn't get better, you'll want to check with a doctor. If it's been getting progressively worse, go ahead and call on Monday. If it's been getting better, you could wait and see if it clears up on its own. If it started out exactly the way it is now and hasn't improved or worsened in two weeks, then you'll just need to decide how much the itch is bothering you to decide how quickly you need the doctor's appointment.
