For some time now I have burning sensation in my left breast. A few days ago my nipple on the left started itching real bad. The pharmacist gave me a cream to soothe the itching and told me it might burn for a few days. Today I went to my gp as I felt a lump ( I have very lumpy boobs but thought with this burning I should go). The dr thinks I have a breast infection as my nipple is very slightly red and feels warm to the touch. He suggested I try creams first, if nothing improves by Thursday he told me to start antibiotics and if after that it still doesn't get better he told me to go back. I don't have discharge or crusting and I don't think I have dimpling (many stretch marks on my small boobs). I have warmth and burning sensation and to me my boob looks ok but I feel it bigger. He said my lymph nodes are not inflamed either. Since the symptoms of IBC are the same I am panicking. When I mentioned it he said he is not worried but I am panicking. Did anyone have a breast infection with warmth and burning sensation without fever? Please let me know as I am already convincing myself I'm dying.
