Breast skin rash

I'm 30 years old. About five months ago, the skin on my breast started to get what I thought looked like edema. It started out the size of a coin and now has grown to half my breast.  Went to a clinic, they gave me antibiotics and topical skin creams. I changed to white cotton bras. It did not help. I had a mammo and US done and it was all negative. I was told it was a skin infection and to go back to the doctor. It still looks like its swollen to me. I can barely feel any sensation in that area. I really have no other symptoms other than mild pain under my arm but they said they saw nothing abnormal. They told me it should go away. Should I be concerned or is it really just a skin rash?

Get yourself to a breast surgeon. Ignore those who say you should not worry. You are the only advocate of YOUR health. Switch doctors.

Since the rash on breast is spreading it can be due to dermatitis skin or cellulitis skin. Cellulitis is an acute infection of skin and soft tissues characterized by localized pain, swelling, tenderness, erythema, and warmth.It usually follows a break in the skin, such as a fissure, cut, laceration, insect bite, or puncture wound.
I suggest you an immediate dermatologist’s evaluation and get the skin biopsied to confirm the diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
