What causes oval shaped sore on the side of breast?

I have an oval sore on the side of my breast. It is white on the inside and surrounded by a red ring. it just appeared two days ago. I put bacitracin on it an covered with a bandaid. It looks the same as it did when I first saw it. Do i need to go to urgency care? I have no fever and it it is not painful.

Hello dear
I understand your concern
Your symptoms could be due to fungal infection.
Examination by the dermatologist is must to diagnose. or you can use premium service of the HCM in which you can upload the picture of lesion at the report section for better management.
Following treatment under the advise of dermatologist is recommend.
Course of oral anti-fungal drugs like Fluconazole
Topical anti-fungal cream like luliconazole
use antifungal powder containing sertaconazole
Use soap containing ketoconazole for rinsing of affected areas.
Take oral antihistaminics for itching as required.
Maintain hygiene over those areas and avoid wearing tight undergarments.
Avoid sweats. drink plenty of water and eat healthy diet.
Hope this may help you
