Thanks for the question.

Based on your description, this looks like a local skin infection. It’s common to get such infection in this area. Local antibiotic cream, oral antibiotic and oral painkiller can help to resolve this.

This needs treatment sooner as infection in this area can spread rapidly and may form abscess and abscess will need drainage later. Therefore in this present context, I urge you to contact your local doctor for clinical examination and prescription of oral antibiotics. Besides that a clinical evaluation is suggested as one always has to be on safer side with breast lumps.

Cancer is not very common at your age, so do not be worried. Consult your nearest doctor for examination. We can safely rule out any tumors with a detailed clinical examination.

Hope this answers your query. Please ask if there are doubts.
