I noticed this appear on my right breast a couple of days ago, over those two days it has changed in colour to a yellowy colour and it has gotten red around the edges and i have noticed red vein type things underneath it. 

I'm not really sure what it is and what I should do about it. It doesn't hurt but it is quite puffy.

    yes I agree....it certainly looks as though you have an infection in your breast....please do not leave it. If you do have one, it can spread quickly, and may become celulitis..( inflammation that spreads rapidly. )......I have had it twice..and my husband once...we were both admitted into hospital for days on intravenous antibiotics...so please see your GP or practise nurse for advise and help very soon, if your problem persists.....regards to all ...Deirdre xx

    Totally agree with everyone who has replied. You need a professional opinion and professional treatment.  Dont ignore this.

    For the life of me I don't know why you are writing about this on here when quite clearly you should be making an urgent appointment with your doctor. If you can get to a gynaecologist and get him/her to take a look BUT DO NOT JUST LEAVE IT.

      Just as a response to this, I didn't make an appointment with my doctor straight away because I couldn't get into my doctor hence why I wanted an opinion as to whether it was worth getting an emergency appointment. Which it wasn't because it is just a cut that got infected.

      Second, maybe look up what a gynaecologist does, they don't have anything to do with breasts.

      Thank you for the advice but maybe think about how you word things before you post it

    Mayday is absolutely right...and i hope by now you have seen a professional for some advice.     You dont need a gynaecologist though, See your GP first if you are in UK who will refer you on to a specialist if necessary.    If you are in an area where its nigh on impossible to get an urgent appt with GP [tell receptionist you are worried about a breast lesion,that should speed it up], then go to your nearest A/E.    But whatever you decide...dont wait any longer. Let us know how you get on.

    I ended up seeing my GP and they said it was just a cut that got infected and gave me a cream to put on it. They said to try that for a week and see how I got on with it. So far so good.

      Glad you are now getting something to sort it out. We weren't being horrible just worried because of the area it was in.

      Evie,do you wear bras with wires? Are they cutting into your breasts or rubbing and making 2 sores?   just a badly fitting bra can cause the sort of marks you are describing,especially if you have heavy breasts. Try going without a bra or changing your bra to a different one.

      If it is your bra rubbing and causing these sores you may have a slight infection that has set in.  Any mildly medicated cream would be OK to use but if they become very red and painful to touch you should see a doctor as an underlying infection may have taken hold.
