What do rashes on the right breast indicate?

have what looks like a rash. several small interlocking rings on the chest on the right breast. The rings are made up of tiny red dots. doesn t itch. somewhat sore to the touch. Had it for several days. doesn t appear to be getting worse or better. Thought of lymes because I inspect buildings and houses but I think the area is too small. Circles are about two to three inches across.

Hi,

I understand your concern.

It could be great if you could provide a photo of the rash area to evaluate the changes myself.

Anyway, from what you are saying, it might be allergy reaction to any new detergent or anything you might have applied/inhaled or consumed recently

Fungal infection is to consider to if no real allergen is found out.

For the moment, I advise to :
- keep good local hygiene
- apply cold compresses locally
- take antihistamines

If it won't get better, should consult further with dermatologist for a more specific treatment.

Wish fast recovery.
