Breast sores

I keep getting really bad sores on my right breast. They leak puss and blood and then seem to leave a hole until it heals.  What in the world could it be? They just come and go and in different spots.

Hi,

Nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions.

You should consult your doctor or breast specialist and get a proper clinical evaluation done. The pus would also need to be send for lab analysis.

What is your age? What other symptoms do you have? Have you noticed any abnormal features on breast self examination like a breast lump, nipple discharge , etc?

You would also need to get an ultrasound and mamogram (mammogram) done.

Let us know what your doctor advises and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
