The Waiting Game & The Breast Rash

I’ve had of rash on my breast for almost 2 months now. It’s angry and red and sometimes it looks like an orange peel. Not exactly the best way to describe a rash; it makes doctors nervous. A month ago I went in to have it looked at and I was told it is probably an allergic reaction to taking birth control pills. An allergic reaction is not concentrated in one spot. I was told to put hydrocortisone cream on it twice a day and come back if it gets worse or does not go away. So, I went back in to the OB-GYN and she immediately sent me to dermatology. The dermatologist took a biopsy and now I get to wait for 2 weeks to get the results back and in the meantime look up everything I am going to die from on the Internet. The first thing that pops up is Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Holding my breath.
