What are raised red welts on top of the breast indicative of?
Prurigo nodularis most probably
Thanks for photograph. I feel that most probably the lesions may be prurigo nodularis.
The exact cause is not known. But,mental stress and psychological disturbances might trigger the disease. Certain systemic diseases like liver and kidney diseases may also cause prurigo nodularis. Consult the dermatologist and have thorough examination and investigations to find out the triggering cause. Sometime no cause is found.
Oral antihistaminics,steroids in tapering doses,application of steroid cream or tacrolimus oint...etc might improve the condition. Intradermal lesional steroid might enhance the relief. Avoid stress and anxiety....and take treatment of underlying disease.
So, do not worrry,it might heal in few days to few weeks.
I hope this must be helpful to improve your condition. If any more query regarding this condition...you are welcome.

Reduced function of liver due to fatty changes ( fatty liver) might be responsible for the rash which you have.. And anxiety disorder may the another cause.
You may continue treatment from your physician and psychiatrist for your both diseases. And also take perfect treatment from your dermatologist. Intradermal steroid injection in the the lesions would improve the condition and the pruritus may be relieved.
Hope this answer would have satisfied you.
Wishing you early recovery and healthy life.
