Cannot wear a bra as it getting to sore now
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 21 days ago.
Thank you for the information and I am sorry for your symptoms.
The possibilities here could be -
1. Bilateral eczema or atopic dermatitis with secondary bacterial infection. I am considering this is the first possibility because it is coming in both breasts at the same time.
2. Inflammatory breast cancer starting stages. The important point against this is that it is coming in both breasts at the same time.
3. Bilateral breast adenoma with secondary bacterial infection.You need medical attention and other physical examination by a physician.Please seek medical attention.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you today!Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you in this regard please.
