Thread: Ibc fear

    Ibc fear

    So in January I realized I had a lot of veins around my boobs. My gyno said nothing. My dermo said nothing. Then I got this red mark which grew and now looks like a red bullseye. I went to my dermo and she said it looks like something tick related and said not ibc but she didnít know much about ibc at all so that didnít calm me down. No hot feeling, no swelling, no nipple issues. Has anyone ever heard of ibc looking like it has rings?

    What you're describing sounds like a tick bite and I would see your GP as a bulls eye mark could be a deer tick.

    I agree, you might need treatment for Lyme's as this sounds like it could be a tick bite. (Its not IBC)

    My doctor said first step is blood work so he gave me a form for the Lyme test. I just keep staring at it and Iím so terrified of ibc. Iím 33 which is in the age range and the rash is growing. The circles are pretty present but my derm didnít know anything about ibc so her saying itís not cancer didnít ease my mind. I keep googling it and looking at ibc rashes. Iíve cried for hours. I have two small babies and canít imagine leaving them. Iíve heard of so many women misdiagnosed for months with something else and itís ibc. I live in a city. No woods anywhere near me. I donít hike and canít imagine not realizing I was being bitten by a tick. The I donít feel sick or anything else either.

    Itís a very prominent set of red circles. Perfectly round. I guess ibc would spread outward and not remain in a perfect circle with white in it.

    Doesn't matter.... Can you get stung by a bee in the city? Same difference. Let us know what your doctor says.

    Re: Ibc fear

    Thank you. Blood work will take a few days and I decided to keep my appointment at the breast clinic. My husband says to keep it to ease my mind but in my head Iím keeping it so I can get the ibc diagnosis as early as possible. I hate this. Iím not sleeping. Iím checking this rash every ten seconds. Breaking into tears every single time my little guy hugs me. He has autism and is non verbal and I just lose my mind over the idea of him never understanding that I didnít want to leave him. That I didnít chose inflammatory breast cancer to take me at 33. I gave up alcohol a few weeks ago realizing my anxiety was making me drink more and God could I use a glass of wine right now.

    Has ringworm been considered , it also produces a rash of circles like your description ? ( fungal infection, easy to catch )
