strange spots on breast

A month or so ago I started getting pimples on my breast which never happened to me before but shortly after they've cleared up I started finding some freckle-like spots on my breasts and on the underside it looks almost like a rash but it doesn't itch. I don't tan and where the freckles are located there is no way that the sun could have gotten to them. Since I live in Japan I have to air dry my clothes and I'm wondering if maybe something is getting into my clothes and giving me all these marks. Has anyone ever had anything like this happened to them?

Re: strange spots on breast

Funny you should mention that... I just got done doing a one week treatment of Lamisil. Yup.. jock itch cream. I went to the beach about 3weeks ago and line dried all of the clothes while we were there. When we got home about a week later I noticed these weird brown patches below my breasts and in between them. They didn't itch burn or anything, but they wouldn't go away. Went to the doc. turns out the combination of the sun, heat, moisture and not drying my clothes in the dryer led to yeast infection on my skin. He said that putting your clothes in the dryer kills germs and other nasty stuff that the wash doesn't get out. Also, being in the sun and sweating doesn't help either.
Try to get some jock itch cream and apply 2 x's a day for 7 days. If that doesn't work go to the doctor..... Also... try to locate a dryer.
Hope this helps.

Re: strange spots on breast

Hi...yes, it could be a yeast/fungal infection or allergy to soap or even sweating. Over the counter meds should clear it up if indeed it is that.

I would suggest, however, you also do all lthe research you can about inflammatory breast cancer and get it checked out regardless.
I don't mean to scare you, but it's not information that's "out there". I have a friend who has it....

Please get it checked out and let us know the outcome. It's easy to think the least and the worst..regardless, it's a discomfort that should be tended to.
