Hi, I developed what appears to be a bug bite on my breast that has not gone away. It has been 5 days already. I'm concerned this may be IBC.

There is no itching. It is small hand very hard and seems to perfectly round and on the top layer of skin on the upper inner quadrant of the breast. My nipples have began to invert but only while lying down. I have noticed this for probably 8 months or so, but quit breast feeding around that time.

I couldn't get a very good photo, but it is about the size of a pencil eraser. No bite mark or entrance point, which is why I do not think it is a bug bite.

Here is one that is slightly better to see.
