Breast rash

Posted by coleypink @coleypink, May 22 10:41am

I have had a breast rash (scaly and itchy) since I had my mastectomy with tissue expander placement 10/01/20. I had my exchange surgery 12/16/21. My plastic surgeon had me referred to dermatology that gave me strong hydrocortisone, it will work a little but never completely clear it. It is never gone. Bright red, scaley and so itchy! Anyone else experienced this?

Oh my goodness! I cannot imagine living with itching that long. I am sorry this happened. I don’t have an answer for you but there was a conversation where a lot of women who had reconstruction talked about it and some of them might have an answer for you.

Does the steroid cream stop the itch? Have you tried any over the counter lidocaine treatments?

@coleypink how are you? I have been thinking about you this morning and wondering if you got any answers about that rash?
