Breast itching, peeling and dark area. What could this be?

Hi i recently felt itching on my left breast then days later noticed a small dot scab like thing. Then it got to a pea size and start peeling. I went to the ER cause i thought it was maybe cancer or serious they said it was nothing game me an exam ect. Now its healing almost healed but still large pea size and dark in the middle with a red looking ring around it. And just now when i got out the shower i notice a very light skin peeling and on my right breast now i see 2 a teeny tiny reddish pink dots. The left healing rash thing still kind of itches although i avoid scratching cause i want it to heal and its looking like an ugly unattractive scar on my breast now. What could this be im really worries about this. Im a 21 yr old female, with no kids, not preg/breast feeding. Help :(

Presuming, that your problem is in the surface of te breast which is in contact with the chest-wall, I can say that you had only INTERTRIGO with some Fungal Infection, complicated by scratching by a self-limiting thing it would have healed-up leaving dark coloured skin areas.
you can try some anti-fungal cream for 3 or 4 days, to stop the itching and later and if the Dark colouration is really Bad, use a cream containing "Hydrxyquinone 2.0% with Glyceryl Para amino Benzoate 2.8% for 2 weeks or more depending on the improvement seen....All the BEST............
