I have experienced similar rash under my breasts. My physician said it was a yeast infection. You can also get a yeast infection under your arms. The doctor prescribed a prescription anti-fungal cream that made the itching stop but the rash seemed to hang on. I went to a dermatologist recently who prescribed a powder that is working. I do wear Victoria's Secrets bras and wonder if there is any connection...
Arm pits, under my breasts, back of my knees, and in between my upper thighs. It lasts for over a month and it's a very burning itch. What can this be. I don't go to the tanning bed anymore.

Hello, This can be due to heat rash. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil.
Sounds like an Allergy rash, Hives, put it in your search Engine under 'Urticaria'
I suffered terribly with yeast infectious rashes (the odor was terrible and embarrassing!) but after wearing a cotton strip under my breasts the rash healed overnight. If you're interested and don't feel like messing with cutting up strips, please visit my website at www.****.com to purchase my 100% cotton pads. They work.
I recently had a garage sale and got heat rash on my chest area from the heat and sweat. It moved from between the breasts to underneith one breast. It has been a couple of months now and I can't seem to get rid of it. I have used all kinds of powders to help dry the area. I've used antibotic ointments because it has become so sore and inflamed. I have also used Caladryl maybe to dry the rash. It does seem to help with the itching, but it still hasn't gone away.
Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool your skin and prevent sweating. Keep the affected area dry. Dusting powder may be used to increase comfort.

I am very large chested and occasionally I do get heat rashes under my breasts.. Usually I just treat it with some powder, keep the area clean and dry as possible and within a few day's it goes away. Here lately, the rash underneath my right breast has increasingly gotten worse.. It is itching, and the skin is peeling, and it's bright red and it is so intense that it look's like it's scarring my skin..The parts that are healing, are turning a brownish color...

I don't know if it has anything to do with my breasts getting bigger or what, but I have a bumpy, itchy rash under my breasts. I really hope it's not yeast. But after moisturizing & baby powder for 2 days it is still there. Is heat rash bumpy? Should I call my OB or just PCP?

These rashes may simultaneously occur at a number of areas on a sufferer's body, the most common including the face, neck, under the breasts and under the scrotum. Other areas include skin folds, areas of the body that may rub against clothing, such as the back, chest, and stomach. The best treatment for heat rash is to avoid activities that induce sweating, use air conditioning to cool the environment, wearing light clothing and provide a cooler, less humid environment.

Hi, Miliaria, sweat rash or prickly heat, is a skin disease marked by small and itchy rashes. Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season. It occurs when the sweat gland ducts get plugged due to dead skin cells or bacteria. The trapped sweat leads to irritation or prickling, itching and to a rash of very small blisters, usually in a localized area of the skin.
The rash appears mostly on my lower arms, upper chest, and under my breasts and next to them. At times, my abdomen has itched intensely, too. My physician, along with a naturopathic physician, have no idea what it is. Any takes?? Thanks in advance for any and all help!!

I am on week 6 and have gone back & forth with a rash on my neck, arms and now on my breasts. What I find helpful and putting on baby oil right after I step out of the shower (while wet) air drying and then using a good baby lotion or coca butter lotion. I did have to use some cortizone cream but it was over the counter and did not require me getting a prescription. I had my first labs on Monday and have not got the results but I am very optimistic about them.
