A weird bite on breast?

Edited , 2 users are following.

On thursday night I noticed a small red mark on breast. I've been monitoring it, it looks more like a bite now. Then last night it developed a line above it and this morning there is one below it. It was a bit itchy now its more sore to touch.

On googling IBC keeps coming up so i'm freaking out.

I am also 9.5 weeks pregnant.

Any ideas on what it is?image

    Hi grania03776 - it's a bit difficult to make out whether your rash us extending or if your right breast is more swollen compared to the left breast. I am unable to diagnose, but my first inclination would have been a spider bite which would require a visit to a physician and antibiotics. However, given that you are also pregnant, why freak out? Make an appointment with your doc and let him/her make an up close assessment. Much luck to you.

    I'm just worried because on googling inflammatory breast cancer comes up when you put in bite on breast.
