AIBU to ask the doc to double check my breasts?

I went to the doctor last week because a red patch had appeared on my breast. It was quickly dismissed as eczema. I do get eczema but I've never had it on my breast before.

Now it has spread further. Separate areas. Eczema cream is doing nothing.. where do I go from here?

Ask to be referred to the breast clinic for a mammogram if you are worried that it may be more than a skin condition

Is it on one breast or both?

And how big is the patch? Small round patches can sometimes be caused by fungal infections.
