yeast-infection

I'm not sure how to explain this but I have had this rash on my breast for 2 months now and it's not going away. It is all around my breast, not just under the breast. I have used the athlete's foot cream that my doctor recommended me and it has not worked. I used for 5 weeks now. The symptoms are still there and I think the rash is actually larger than before. Sometimes my breast is very wet from discharges and sometimes it is dry and flaky. There are also a lot of red dots around the breast.
After bearing it for about 4 months (and also my Obe's resident telling me there was no such thing as yeast infection in the breast - I changed Obe after that). I ended up on a 4 week course of fluconozole to treat it.... which finally worked... My daughter never showed signs of yeast infection. But she was also treated when i was - but with a shorter course of nystatin meds.. There are also other oral and topical meds.

I guess the cortisone is rearing its ugly head so to speak. I have a yeast infection in all the folds of skin....groin, under breast, etc. Does anyone else have this problem? I've read that taking steroids and high glucose can cause this....
Don't have sex while you are trying to clear up a yeast infection, honey, cause you can pass those stupid little yeast spores back and forth AND if you are using the cream (whichever one) then you're getting rid of most of the cream onto him. Well, I am thinking that is not what you were doing anyway, but just in case ;-). I was having chronic infections and I found out that I have a bit of a sensitivity to either spermicide or latex. Yeast infections can happen when the pH balance (acidity vs.
I as also thinking yeast infection... lovely place to have one, huh? LOL.. try the creams that come with yeast infection kits- the cream for the "external use". Keep it as dry as possible. I even had to put dry washclothes tucked under my bra to absorb the moisture.
Most likely it's a skin disorder and it sounds to me like a yeast infection that could occur under the breast where the skin tends to be moist and warm. This article about yeast infection will give you more information. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/yeast_infection_skin_rash/article_em.htm Please see your doctor or dermatologist to make sure that this skin irritation is not aggravated because of an underlying health problem that is also causing the bruising.
And since the summer I have had these heat bumps under my right breast. They start off looking like a heat bump and then they look like a blood blister. I have gotten a new bra and started wearing powder and I try not to get that hot so I wont sweat. But they keep coming up. Only two have looked like a blister and the rest look like heat bumps. I used to break out between my breasts when I was in sports. But now its below my breast. I dont know what else to do ... and if it could be cancer.
Or.....your partner can have a yeast infection and you two keep passing it back and forth, have him checked too.
He checked it out and said it was a minor Yeast Infection from the bra. Where the underwire is, it could've held some water there making it moist and causing the problem. He told me to make sure everytime i put a bra on to make sure that its dry. He gave me Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream. Its going away!!!
Basically, for most women it was a deep yeast infection. A couple were told that it is the breast refilling quickly (esp ppl who overproduce). If anyone else wants the link, let me know and I'll pm it to you as well.

I got tested for Genital herpes which came out negative, but I have been looking online and alot of people say that many people get a misdiagonosis of Herpes as a Yeast infection. That is when I was diagonosed with a yeast infection (Papsmear and they found alittle Yeast). I've been lost ever since the Middle of November because this is when it seems to have been happening!
almost two years ago i had breast cancer i didnt i just had radiation, about four weeks ago i got a yeast infection under the breast i had the cancer. then i developed a rash on that breast and on other parts of the body. i take requip for restless leg syndrom, and lunesta sometimes, but i have been taking antihistimes for itching.
I have large breasts sometimes I get a rash between my breast, its itchy has a bad smell and a puss like subtance my breasts will get red and raw and will take two or three days to clear up can you help? This is very embarassing.
Hi, First of all,I don't thinks that your condition has anything to do with breast cancer.The rash sounds like eczema or yeast infection that needs to be treated with medication.The red cysts are obviously infected and since the antibiotics you have been taking are not working,the cysts should be lanced and drained and the pus sent for culture to the lab, so that the correct antibiotics can be prescribed to clear up the infection.
Have any of you heard of getting yeast infection on your breast? I have a horrible itchy breast and have been using lotrimin cream on it for a week. It isn't better and is starting to spread to the other breast. I just got another kind of antifungal cream and I was told to see a doc. monday if not better. I don't have insurance so am reluctant to do that. Maybe somebody has a cure they have used. I have scratched till it is all red and has little liquid bubbles! In misery!!!
Does it hurt under the breast like feel raw?What does it smell like?Is it red or a different color? If it is a yeast infection no matter how much you wash the smells stay you need anti-fungal med and keep it dry sweat makes it worse and also a cotton bra will help like a sports bra.The Dr can give you a Rx for a anti-fungal or you can by athlete feet or jock itch meds at the drug store put it on after you get out of shower make sure you dry off good before you put it on.
I started with a rash under my right breast over the summer. It was very itchy and burned. My doctor told me it was a yeast infection and gave me prescription cream which contains a steroid which seems to calm it down. However, now I have a rash further down...past where my breast ends more on the belly area but on the right side. It is very red and sort of bubbled up slightly...but the bubbles are flat (as if they already burst). It's itchy sometimes...and then its sort of sore.
Dear huggybuggy, The skin on the breast or under the breast is like skin in other areas of the body and subject to a variety of conditions. The skin under the breast can be a perfect environment for a common fungal or yeast infection. Keeping the area clean and dry is important. You may want to talk with your doctor who can give you suggestions for other treatment of this problem.
i have a fairly large, red, area under my right breast that looks similiar to a burn, it itches and the skin over my breast has started to feel like its being stretched. what concer should i have?
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...
but it appeared one morning as a red splotch about the size of a 50 cent piece. Went to the dermatologist right away and she said it was a yeast infection and to use a particular type of cream available through an rx. She took a scaping of the area, and is doing a culture which will be available tomorrow. After two weeks it is basically the same size, itches and actually looks a tad bigger with some other little areas starting around it.
Something that is suppose to help with the yeast or rid us of the yeast is enzymes and another thing I read is to take Grapefruit Seed Extract the minute you get the yeast infection. As for the yeast free diet, I'm curious what that is. What I have read is sugar, cakes, chocolate, caffeine all can aggravate yeast problems. For me if I avoid these things I can keep it some what under control. The minute I take antibiotic I get the white thrush on my tongue.
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?
Is the smell coming from under the breatss or the nipples?? Is there any reddness under your breats?? You could have a yeast infection under your boobies. I am a nurse and I have seen that many times. If its the nipples, it could be clogged pores. (like the way a belly button smells if its not cleaned or it gets sweaty) .. Either way, POWDER, POWDER, POWDER WILL help!! Good Luck!
EVERYTIME MY ECZEMA FLARES UP I ALSO HAVE A YEAST INFECTION. (NOT VIRGINAL) INTENSE ITCHING AROUND THE LEGS WHERE MY PANTIES GO AND UNDER THE BREAST. RECENTLY I HAVE NOTICED SPOTS APPEARING ON MY UPPER LEGS THAT LOOK SIMILAR TO BRUISES. CAN ECZEMA GET INTO YOUR BLOODSTREAM AND CAUSE SOME OF THESE SYSTOMS?
dots with skin on them in perfect rows. Is this a yeast infection or fungus or something else? I am also a 30G cup.
I went to my family MD with a breast lump, lump under my arm, and all the classic Mastitis symptoms. Mammogram and ultrasound did not detect a problem. 4 rounds of antibiotics and 2 rounds of steroids later, still have a lump. Had a repeat ultrasound last week that detected a 1cm by 3/4 cm lump and 5 enlarged lymph nodes. Biopsies on both came back benign, thank God!
