Make sure you're seeing your plastic surgeon to follow the treatment of your reaction. You might want to consider massaging the breasts as well to help with the burning sensation.

You may need oral steroids like a Medrol dose pack. Keep in contact with your PS and you may need a dermatology consultation.

I am sorry to hear about the complication you are experiencing. I have not personally seen this complication result from absorbable sutures; I have seen this most commonly result from an allergic reaction to oral medication or topical surgical glue. Hypersensitivity to material in a bra is also possible.
Depending on the rash distribution, your plastic surgeon will be able to provide you with a better idea of what started this immunologic cascade. At some point, down the line, allergy testing (by an allergist) may be helpful to you.
