My cousin is 19 years old and she came to me worried about a bump that she has on her chest. It isn't on her breast, it's more like in between. She was very stressed out with school a couple of weeks before and started breaking out a lot. When she got the bump she just guessed it was more acne. She says it felt like it at first but it still hurts when she adds pressure on it and it doesn't seem like it's going to leave. Does anyone what this can be??

  • Its probably just an ingrown pimple or a boil, possible an ingrown hair even. The area between the breasts is prime for that because sweat and oils from your skin tend to settle there and the bra kind of rubs all that in and holds it there. Not at all uncommon. Often even a regular plain old pimple can take a long time to form a head on it. And an ingrown hair takes a long time sometimes for any part of the hair to work its way back up to the skin. My little sister had one under her belly button for over a year. Next time she goes to the doctor she can probably just ask him to lance it right in the office. Most likely its not a big deal at all.
