Weird Spot on My Breast

Odd spot. A couple weeks ago I discovered a pink patch about 2 inches long by 1 inch wide on the top of my left breast.

I assumed that it was some kind of bruise... but it hasn't gone away. In fact, today I noticed a few pinprick sized spots of a darker red clustered to one side of it. It doesn't hurt, it isn't swollen or lumpy or warm, and it doesn't appear to be a rub spot from a bra. I don't think it's an allergic reaction as it is so localized and I haven't changed detergents or anything recently. Yes, yes, I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and I will be sure to ask about it, but I'm looking for clues about what to ask and what it could be. I foolishly did some "symptom surfing" and all I can come up with is inflammatory breast cancer which frankly is scaring the crap out of me.
