I am so scared this is IBC! Please read!
I have a light red/pink splotchy patch on my breast and I am so scared it is IBC! I went to the dr who gave me antibiotics--told me it may be an infection and to return in two weeks if it didn't go away and we would talk about next steps (possible biopsy). Three days into the antibiotics and it's not going away and I can't stop freaking out!
It is not hot to the touch, not painful. Just a smooth, redness. No rash. No itching. I have no other symptoms.
I doubt it's mastitis as I haven't breastfed in 3 years.
I am just so scared and paralyzed with fear. What else could it be???
I can't have IBC. I have MS and am undergoing a stem cell transplant for that in January. Please please please don't let me have IBC too!
Any advice or words of reassurance greatly appreciated. I can hardly function I am so scared.
