Mark on my breast

Probably not BF related, or who knows maybe it is. I've had this spot (growing) for i would guess at least a month on my boob. It's round (resembles ringworm) but isn't itchy or scaly. It's not painful or anything. My skin feels just like the rest of my skin, but it isn't going away. I usually wear a sports bra so I wouldn't think it's from anything rubbing it. My little guy is 2 months... I don't see how nursing could cause it. Any other guesses???

It could be a change in pigmentation due to hormonal changes. It might be worth having a doctor look at it. Sometimes a plugged duct can cause a spot like that at the surface, but it would be warm and tender.

Thank you! Hormonal makes sense because I'm almost positive it appeared after I had my son. Just started to worry me because it hasn't went away.

Is it raised or flat? I would definitely suggest having your provider look at any skin changes, especially on the breast. I was thinking some kind of fungal infection at first, but it would most likely be itchy.

I called and my OB prescribed me clotrimazole cream and said to try for a week. It's been a week now
and it's still there. It's completely flat and my skin feels smooth like the skin around it, it's just discolored.

You might want to let a dermatologist look at it.
