Red Rash

Hi, I'm 16 years old, and I have this red dot-rash on my left breast. It doesn't itch, and there's nothing abnormal about the breast at all, it's just there. I believe I've had it since I was around 9 or 10 years old, but I never really paid any attention to it. And now it kind of worries me...Does anyone have any advice to help me?

Hi.
How are you doing?
From your description, it seems that the red dot-rash on your left breast is a telangiectasia or a dilated blood vessel.  It is usually asymptomatic.  This may be a manifestation of a systemic problem like autoimmune diseases.  This may also be acquired after a trauma to the skin or after sun exposure.
I would suggest having it examined by your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
Good luck.
