Ask Doctor: Painful red bump on chest

Anonymous Patient 42 days

Recently I’ve had a small bump just below my breast which looks reddish and a little bit painful if touched or or pressed on and the area is around the lower bra strap. I could guess the sensation was a bit like how an acne feels like. What might it be and how to treat it?

Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. From your complaints, we believe that the painful red bump may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Acne
  • Insect bites
  • Folliculitis looks almost the same as acne but is caused by different bacteria and part of the skin
  • Contact or allergic dermatitis related to the material of the bra strap

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online for free. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
