Common Questions and Answers about Rash under breast

rash

I have had this rash under my breast for over a week now. I tried using some no scented soap and drying the area well. I tried a ph balanced soap that didn't work. I even tried using medicated powder and A&D ointment and to no avail. It itches terribly and now the skin is raised like a heat rash. I do have big breasts and don't know what else to do. I am trying to exhaust the home remedies before I actually go to the doctor. Any suggestions what this may be or what I can use?
Nothing there. Next day small red rash appeared in 2 spots the size of a dime. Then 3 splotches appeared under breast and center of breasts. Little bit itchy. Mostly painful. Don't sweat, am very clean. Help!!
Hello, You have not described the rash in details and many possibilities are possible for rash under the breast. It can be intertrigo, fungal infection, erythrasma, flexural psoriasis, candidiasis and papilomatosis. Please elaborate on the symptoms and description of the rash so that a list of differentials can be made. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
for a long time now i have had red spots (or a rash) under my left breast and a little bit under my right breast. the rash is flat with no pus or crusting. it rarely itches and does not hurt. i have larger breasts and usually do not wear a bra unless i am going out to eat, the bar, getting my hair done, etc (i feel more comfortable with out a bra on)... any ideas on what this could be??
A painful rash under the breast may be intertrigo - a rash that forms in hot moist areas - like jock itch. This generally is pinkish and can be painful. If a fungus infection is part of it there may be little "satellite lesions" - red spots all around the edges of the rash. You can treat this by cleaning it with Witch Hazel and then treating it with anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole. This is especially common if you have large breasts and if you have been warm and sweaty.
It is not uncommon to get yeast rash under pendulous breasts where very little air gets at the skin. Nystatin powder or cream is very effective. You should have relief after even the first application if that is what is going on for you.
Everything healed and for the most part all is well. Just recently I broke out in a very itchy rash under the left breat (same breast as lump removal).Could this be another sign of something to be worried about for instance breast cancer ? How often should I get a mamogram done I am only 29 yrs. old and very concerned.I am also big breasted does this have a play in the problems I have had and have now?

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...
About 2 months ago I started getting a rash under both of my armpits. It is extremely itches and I can't help but itch and then it is painful. I have tried everything to make it go away and it does fade sometimes and I think it is gone and then right out of the blue, it returns. I have been using the same deodorant since I was 14 and I am now 27, and never had any problems, I did try switching when the rash started.
I am 57 i been having problems with my right and left breast, i have a very large red and purple circle under both breast by the side of a coffee cup saucer. the circles look like bruses, the circles are half on breast and ribcage.

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.

I have a rash in patches down my neck and under my right breast. There are smaller spots of it on seemingly random parts of my body. For the most part it looks like dry red dashes and while not overly itchy, does seem to bother me most after showering and is slowly spreading. Help!
I wore a new bra the day the rash started, BUT the first of redness and rash were on front of chest, not under bra, but next to it. Used a new soap about 2-3 weeks prior. I've had rashes before...once to a fancy mushroom and once to sweet and low, but benadryl cleared it up within a day! I've went off the D and Calcium and the soap right away.Also have been itching on inner thighs, but don't see the redness or rash there! Appreciate any help or insight you can give me.

I had a small quarter size rash on the upper inner quadrant of my breast, my doctor felt it was a bull's eye tick rash and I feel like it has gotten lighter but not gone away - how worried should I be? This is not where I was bit by a tick, I am worried about inflammatory breast cancer.

I have a red itchy dry rash thats formed under and on the sides of both breasts. i have tried caladryl and some other otc medicines but i can't stop the itching. Even my nipples are dry and itchy. Looks like skin is peeling too. i have stopped putting anything on it and now it looks darker like its burnt or something. i have been scratching over my tshirt at times when it gets too bad to ignore. Any idea what it could be and if it's serious enough to see a doctor?
Hello, Since the rash on breast is spreading it can be due to dermatitis skin or cellulitis skin. Cellulitis is an acute infection of skin and soft tissues characterized by localized pain, swelling, tenderness, erythema, and warmth.It usually follows a break in the skin, such as a fissure, cut, laceration, insect bite, or puncture wound. I suggest you an immediate dermatologist’s evaluation and get the skin biopsied to confirm the diagnosis.
