Red raised small marks on breast

I am an brown-skinned African American woman.  Recently there has been the appearance of three small, red whelp-like spots on my right breast.  I went to the gynecologist when the first one appearred and he said it didn't seem to be harmful but notify him if any changes occur.  Well, in the past day or so two more have appearred.  They do not itch, hurt and are not warm to touch.  I am in the peri-menopausal stage of my life.  Does anyone know what these may be??  I  was thinking they might be connected to my menstruation cycle??  I'm concerned...plese HELP!!!

Welts can arise in respose to a blow or allergic reaction and are elevated.  Hives (wheals) are itchy.  Your red spots could be related to hormones or many other factors, so it would be best to have them evaluated by a dermatologist.

Best wishes...
