Rash under breast area

Common Questions and Answers about Rash under breast area


Avatar f tn I have had this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> 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?
Avatar f tn It is not uncommon to get yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> 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.
Avatar n tn Everything healed and for the most part all is well. Just recently I broke out in a very itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the left breat (same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> 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?
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> pain, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. I would seriously consider physically seeing a medical practitioner. Your symptoms fit with something called "Inflammatory breast Disease", while your age group in at a fairly low risk for cancer, approx. 4000 young women in the US, under the age of 20, were diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Here is a link to Inflammatory breast Disease http://www.youngsurvival.org/young-women-and-bc/bc-faqs/inflammatory-breast-disease/ T.W.
Avatar f tn i have a 1" red line under breast, sore, burning, when touched. No rash or bleeding, Wondered if a medicated powder would help, or would a lotion or cream be better. have this about 4 days, but cannot afford doctors. can anyonehelp. I am 86 and do sweat under breasts.Thank youall.
Avatar n tn I have experienced similar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> 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...
Avatar n tn A few months ago I noticed a red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. It did not look like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> (wasn't raised or bumpy). It just looked like my skin was redder in that area. It is about an inch in diameter. I kinda forgot about it. Now a couple of weeks ago I felt a lump close to the area, so I went in to Dr. He sent me for a mammagram which came back negative for anything unusual. To be on the safe side I am having a biopsy done in 9 days, that was the soonest I could get into the surgeon.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago I started getting a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> 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.
Avatar n tn I have a red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>..I have had it before and with neosporen is has disappeared. It now has returned for over 2 weeks and I have tried an over the counter cortezon1 cream and it has disappeared some but still looks raw and is tender...it itches some and if I touch it..it seems to sting a little.It is always moist and damp in that area. Any ideas...
Avatar n tn I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. I'm thinking its coming from my victoria scret bra's. What can I get to get rid of this rash. Its like a burning feeling.
Avatar f tn I recently had a garage sale and got heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span> 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.
Avatar n tn I have a red itchy dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> thats formed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> 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?
Avatar f tn I can barely feel any sensation in that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span>. I really have no other symptoms other than mild pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my arm but they said they saw nothing abnormal. They told me it should go away. Should I be concerned or is it really just a skin rash?
Avatar n tn They are about less than a centimeter in size, but one of them (under my breast where the underwire of my bra irritates it) has grown to about 1 inch. Does this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> sound like the ARS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>? i've never had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> before and it's really strange and i'm freaking out. i've had all the ARS symptoms: sore throat, diarrhea, night sweats, swollen lymph nodes.
Avatar f tn I am very large chested and occasionally I do get heat rashes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my breasts.. Usually I just treat it with some powder, keep the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span> 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...
Avatar f tn Last August I got a strange red, nipple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that lasted several weeks. Disappeared. Came back in January. Disappeared. Now back. Both breasts; left breast feels particularly heavy and full. Little itchy, tingly, uncomfortable (particularly during the hot weather in Arizona). It extends out and beyond actual nipple. No crusting; no discharge. Bra very bothersome. I hadn't, up until now, been concerned because I also was having a similar situation going on with my lips and facial skin.
Avatar n tn I have both a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> (itchy, red, dry) slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> and runs in between my breasts. I also have been having on and off pains in left chest area (doctor did stress test and it is not heart related). Are these signs of breast cancer?
Avatar n tn The part that bothers me the most though, when these cramps started they were limited to the ribcage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> but now it seems to encompass the entire upper chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> included). First impulse is to grab the sucker and squeeze, but alas, not such a good idea in public. I teach accounting software to companies all over the states and have learned to just work through the pain. I cannot believe doctors don't have an answer!
Avatar f tn I have what seems to be a heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> or so i thought until i noticed my butt hurting right where my cheeks meet at the top, when i inspected it there is what looks like a rash but it is bright red and very bothersome. If i sit wrong or move to fast it hurts, i am worried as to what this could be!! Should i go to the doctor, ER or something??
Avatar n tn For about a year my right nipple has been itching and I have now developed a terrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> as well. I have been to a dermatologist and I went and saw my doctor. I had a mammogram and ultrasound that the tech. said showed a cyst. I do have some pain under my arm where my lymph nodes are.My question is, should I be concerned about breast Cancer. I was thinking about insisting on being referred to a breast clinic and asking for a biopsy of the area to be sure.
Avatar n tn I am assuming you have large <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>; but even if not, have you tried using your deodarant there. I have large breast & it helps to wear a cotton breathable bra & an ample amount of anti-perspirant/deodarant there as well.
Avatar n tn I have seen a yeast infection in the groin area, underarms, belly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>area</span> when someone is over weight, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>. The problem with these kind of infections is that they spread. So, you could have had a little area that is now spreading down your leg. I would keep the doctors appointment just in case the over the counter meds don't work. Good luck!
Avatar n tn These may present as abscesses, which can be drained. As uncommon as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> infections are in young women, inflammatory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> cancer is also very uncommon in this age group. If the mass and redness persists, it is reasonable to have it re-evaluated, preferrably a breast specialist.
