Red swelling rash

Bravo Member Posts: 64
I’ve just noticed a red swollen patch on my affected breast. It looks like the breast lymphoedema rash, and I do have lymphoedema in that area which has been treated for the 3 years since surgery. Last week I went to the physio lymphoedema for massage and she said I had made steady progress and that I was almost at the end of her treatment. Now yesterday this 5 cent raised red patch, surrounded by the telltale orangepeel and blush for a 6cm diameter area. Any thoughts out there?

    Whatever it is, get it checked. It may well be nothing of concern but for your own peace of mind get it looked at. Best wishes.

    To the Dr for review asap. Hopefully it's nothing but not worth leaving it regardless of the cause. You will only worry until seen anyway.
