Red mark on breast

Hi all

I've woken up this morning and noticed I have a small - about the soze of a pound coin - red circle on my breast - it's red around the outside and the flaky in the middle. I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant - any advice - I will try and get a doctors appointment x

Defoe speak to the GP, but I just wanted to add that I had something like this a couple months ago. It had a tiny flake of skin in the middle and picked it off and the thing wouldn't stop bleeding! I never went to GP but it has cleared up. Yours could be pregnancy related perhaps, but always get things checked if your worried.

Thanks all - have a fungal cream from doc - although hasn't done a lot in 72 does look like ringworm but goodness knows how!

Two doctors have told me it looks like ringworm and it did look like it was fading Christmas Eve but it's not looking any better now - no worse but no better - I'm thinking I could be breast feeding within the next two weeks - so thinking I'm going to have to head back to the gp a third time????

Could it be excema?

It could be I guess? Doesn't itch - I will stop with the fungal cream for a couple of days I think in case that's making it more aggregated and try the eczema cream that my daughter has ....
