Scab/hole In Left Breast

I had gotten what looked like a bruise on my left breast. It scabed over and when i was out working on my car the other day, the scab stuck to my bra and ripped off. Now I have about a nickle size hole and its pretty sore. It goes from red, to dark red, to purple in color around the hole and it slightly pusses and bleeds. Any suggestions?

Answer

If it is getting better, you could continue with the same home care you would use if the place were on your leg or tummy. There are some skin infections that definitely need a doctor's care, so if you are not seeing steady improvement, I'd suggest making an appointment with your doctor.
