What causes red mark on breast with black scab at center?

Hi, a few days ago I found a red circular mark on the side of my breast, a few days later it had a black scab in the middle with the skin peeling around it. Since I peeled the skin off it gad become tender to touch on the breast. The skin I peeled off I could not feel.

Apply topical antibiotic and steroid like cortisone cream and neosporin ointment on the affected area twice daily for 5-7 days. If it doesn't improve in a week's time consult a doctor and go for clinical examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
