how to treat red hair follicles on breast?

I have redness around each individual hair follicle on my breasts. They get darker around the bottom area of my breast. It is all over. I grow more hair on my breast than the average woman. I have tried consistently washing with hibiclens, peter roth complexion pads, etc. drying with fresh towels, washing my bras... helped a little, but not enough to make it go away. Ive looked up symptoms of inflammatory breast cancer but i dont have the dimpling... it truly just looks like a case of folliculitis that is very stubborn.

What can i do at this point to make it go away? It looks so ugly, like I have breast acne.

That does really sound like the start of folliculitis. Now, there is something called peau d'orange (weird name) that is associated with IBC (breast cancer).  Looks like dots.  Sincerely doubt this is the case. But I would schedule a doctors appointment to make sure all is well.

Thanks. I did go see a doctor. Turns out its not folliculitis nor breast cancer... there was no immediately treatable condition. I just have dark hair follicles. :( While its a sigh of relief... now I just have to figure out how to even the skin tone.
