Question: rash on breasts and feverish


 pj000 - Sat Apr 25, 2009 2:33 pm

i have felt like i have a fever for a week now, its very strange because i've taken my temp and i don't have a fever. I've been tired this whole week. I don't feel like it has anything to do with my diet, i eat fine. I havent taken anything for this "fever". I don’t have any cold symptoms, no runny nose, no cough, no body aches. Also about a month ago I noticed a rash on one of my breasts and then a week later or so I noticed another one on my other breast, they itch occationaly, brownish in color .i wasn’t concerned I thought it would clear up on its own, it hasn’t.

User avatar Hello,

It would be impossible to know what the cause of your fever is without a direct medical exam. The fever and the breast rash/eczema could be linked depending on the degree of inflammation in the breast. Your doctor may order a mammogram and put you on an empiric antibiotic for a couple of weeks depending on your exam.

Please keep us updated.
