Pimple under breast
I’ve noticed a red pimple (it’s a little big) under my left breast. Now it’s turned dark and other small red pimples are showing next to it. I’m really worried it might be cancer. Are these symptoms of breast cancer? (I don’t know if this has to do with anything but i started exercising almost daily but i’m not wearig a sports bra. Just a regular kinda tight bra. Could the sweat and the friction cause these to show up under just one breast? )

This is fungal infection and it is very common on the chest area in females. The treatment for fungal infection is simple. You have to take anti fungal tablets and creams for 4 to 6 weeks following which it resolves. Do not apply soap on that area and do not self treat with over the counter steroid creams. Mistreatment with steroid creams like panderm, fourderm, betnovate, candid b etc and self treatment with cheaper generic medicine is the most common reason for recurrent disease. Another cause of recurrence is cross infection from other infected people in the house. Kindly call me or send photos using online consult option for accurate diagnosis and treatment.  If this is fungal infection, it needs to be treated as early as possible as it will spread further on your body  and also to other people in the household.
