Dry Itchy Circular Rash on Breast

One morning I woke up after sleeping with my bra on, I don't know if this is connected in any way, but when I woke up I noticed a red circular spot on my breast. The spot was round, red, and itchy. I went to two dermatologists who checked for a fungus, and that came back negative. The first dermatologist prescribed told me I had Pityriasis Rosea and prescribed me Fluticasone Propionate Cream. I was told to apply this twice daily and I did so for about 4 weeks. However, with PR other spots are supposed to show up and I got none. I also used Cortizone 10 in addition. It got worse before it got better, and it seemed to be clearing up. Then, my skin started to get these pimple like things on it and the second dermatologist I saw recommended that I stop all medications. Well I did that for 3 days and this so called rash was back again. It could be because it was really hot at night because when I woke up I noticed it was really inflamed, red and itchy. I tried to use the creams which made it seem like it flared up. So I tried witch hazel which seemed to dry out whatever it was. Now it is still red, and it seems scaly/bumpy to the touch. I'm not sure if it has gotten any bigger. It seemed like dry skin so I've been trying to put a light layer of the fluticasone cream on it and I've also been applying the cortisone in addition. I've seen little improvement. Can anyone please help me? I would love to know what it is and how to treat it. Its been 6 weeks today and the spot is still there. Also I've been trying to refrain from wearing bras. Thank you so much!
