Hot feeling on breast

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January, had a mastectomy in February and started with chemotherapy shortly thereafter. I started getting a warm feeling on my removed breast after my first chemo session, I ignored it but it got worse after my second chemo session. It feels like there is a fire underneath my skin, its not sore nor red but it very hot. I went to my oncologist about the problem and she said it was probably some nerves. She prescribed medication to me but it does not work. I called her back but she seemed confused, she kept asking me if its sore or swollen. She said I must give the medication a bit more time. I have been drinking it for 6 days without a sign of improvement, I live in a small town and there is no other oncologist i can get a second opinion from. I read about Inflammatory breast cancer, could this be it and can it grow on a removed breast? I am a 29 year old african woman. Please assist.
