Can someone advise me if this rash and throwing pain from within is related to silicone leaking? (Photos)

Rash and pain
My observation is that when there are no answers on this forum, it is because no one has any good suggestions. I am very sorry to hear about your situation. I, too, have no good answers but I might offer some direction of how to proceed.
First, leaking silicone is not a rare situation since it has occurred in many different forms over the last 40 years. This type of rash and symptom does not seem to occur as a result.
I have seen a similar rash to yours once about ten years ago. No one could figure out the cause and, as a last resort, we removed the implants and took cultures of the implants and the implant pockets. It turned out to be an extremely rare infection. Removing the implants cured the patient and she was able to have new implants placed at a later date.
I have no idea if this would help you, but it is something to keep in mind if all else fails. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
