Hi all have had this on my breast for about 6 weeks now not painful or sore just feels rough when touched? was thinking might be a infected hair follicle as i get that quite ofter but never on my breast. will call gp on monday but just wanted peace of mind after scaring myself on google.

Has the reason for them been investigated?

Gp has previously said they are ingrown hairs that get infected that get better with oral antibiotics or ointments.
