To me it sounds like dry skin. I'm sure I've had one before. Try putting some cortisone cream on it if you can use that while pregnant! I forget my youngest is 10 now!

Try some coconut oil on the patch! At the very least it will moisturizer and help protect the skin, and it's all natural.

If it helps, I am 27 with a 2 year old daughter and hope to get pregnant again at the end of this year. I have no history of BC either, but found a lump in my right breast and am awaiting an ultrasound. I can attest tote anxiety and fear that comes along with these worries, but I do know that stressing about it strains the body and make symptoms worse. So try and rest and enjoy life for what it is until you can get some answers!!

Much love to you and enjoy your pregnancy! I loved being pregnant (despite my anxiety! )

My friend is a radiologist at a breast center and told me that ibc rarely presents as a rash on a small area of the breast - usually the whole breast is affected. Additionally, I know someone who knows someone who does have ibc and her breast swelled up like one or two sizes almost overnight. It sounds to me (I am not a doctor) that you may have some dermatitis on the area. You should check with your doctor and that is what it is, she will be able to give you something for it that will also be safe for your pregnancy.

It could be interigo. I get it this when I am stressed and when I am a bit sweaty. I was convinced it was something worse.
It could also be that you are allergic to something. I am allergic to most shampoos and had to change things about.
