Mastitis can have surface redness and swelling too. My mom had something like that when she got it. Call the dr.

I've had mastitis a lot, but never anything that looks like this. :(

this looks like a skin infection to me. Possibly even an irritation or season related change

I'm sorry!  My husband brought that home with him when he came home from Iraq.  It was horrible to get rid of.  Make sure you GLOB the meds on it and cover it so it doesn't spread.  You can transfer it so make sure you put the cream on baby and other family members if you see anything that resembles it and change the sheets almost daily!  It's a PIA to get rid of!!!

 That's what my first thought was when I looked at it.  Sorry-good luck ridding yourself of it!

When my son had ringworm, lotrimin ultra got rid of it quickly.
For the recurrent plugged ducts, look into lecithin supplements to hello.
