Refered to breast clinic had my appointment both breasts are pure and have lots of like none colured streach marks on have changed shape but neither any bigger or smaller than the other no pain now thst went. Breast specialists examined didn’t seem concerned about colouring or lines. Had mammogram and ultra sound all good. But no one is taken the couloring seriously or saying what this is I went back to doctors last week and doctor googled ibc said nonothi g like the pictures. I don’t want to kerp going back and back but I do need to know what this is its terrible the color when warm any advise would be great. I am 53 and it is now on both breasts thankyou
