Is this just a mozzie bite or something more serious? (breast related)

I have what I originally thought was a mosquito bite (they love me and I am always getting bitten and I do react badly sometimes). But it seems to be spreading into a rash.

It actually reminds me of when I had mastitis ( only with DC1 and that breast got abcesses anf had to be surgically cut open and drained, 8 years ago). But DC2 is nearly 3 and stopped bfing at 4 months old. The rash bit is quite tender to touch and it does feel a bit warm. And it seems to be spreading towards the armpit area sad

The spot bit does get a little itchy which is why I thought it was a mozzie bite.

But of course I have been googling and I am now thinking the worst.

Cause for concern and a trip to the doctor?

It looks like an infected bite. I would go to GP just to put your mind at rest.

Thanks for the reply.

Will be ringing the doctor tomorrow (different timezone).

It feels and looks just like mastitis. Weird.

Hopefully just a pesky bite.

Take an anti histamine & put some bite cream on to see if that relieves it. If still the same then get checked by a Dr.

Do you remember getting bitten recently? I react really badly to bites too.

Keep us posted, hopefully just a bite, maybe try what megbeth has suggested
