  • I'm Agoraphobic and don't leave my house so unable to attend GP or local hospital to have this investigated.
    I'm morbidly obese - due to combination of drugs listed above and which have known side effects of weight gain (not due to diet) I don't eat fried food or red meat and eat plenty of fresh fruit.
    I'm panic-stricken this might be Paget's disease of the breast. I've been trying to research via the Internet but my symptoms don't seem to fit anything - not Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Rash, but has similarities to Paget's. I can't find any sign of a lump in either breast but don't know what this redness and 'spreading' of it is on my left nipple and areola.
