Hi, I came across your post from a Google search. Did your rash clear up? How long did it last, did they ever figure out what it is/was. I had a little redness on my aerola, after putting hydrocortisone cream on it it got worse (I got over-heated and was wearing a nursing pad- think I had a reaction to that) and became a rash and spread. Surgeon recommended lotrimin and while it's not gone has significantly improved. I go back in two weeks and he'll determine if I need a biopsy. Did you do a biopsy? I had a biopsy in Dec 2021, after an abnormal mammogram, which came back normal, but the images didn't match the findings so was recommended to a surgeon. Had a lumpectomy on 1/5/22, came back positive for stage 1 grade 1 DCIS & IDC, had second surgery on 1/19/22 for not tissue removal and 3 lymphnodes. All clear with clear margins. I have a seroma near the incision site (trauma 3 times I assume is the reason) which is on the side of my breast not my aerola area. I also googled and it's freaked me out. Surgeon says it doesn't look like IBC, I've seen him 3 times for it and am going back in 2 weeks. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
