Red Rash on breast

I have a small red "blotch" on my breast..not on the nipple or areola. It does not itch. It is not swollen, raised or hot. There is no lump. Lasts mammogram (3 months ago) was fine. I noticed this after wearing a new bra. I am sensitive to some metals. If I wear certain watches or rings I gt itchy bumps.

Hello,
From the symptoms it looks like contact dermatitis to me. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Also wear cotton clothes. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.

For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used , whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid . But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
