Rash under breast area

Common Questions and Answers about Rash under breast area


Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn breast pain, and rash. 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 A few months ago I noticed a red area on my breast. It did not look like a rash (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 n tn 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...
Avatar n tn I have a red rash under my left breast..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 m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have a rash under my breast. 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 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn I can barely feel any sensation in that area. I really have no other symptoms other than mild pain under 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 rash sound like the ARS rash? i've never had a rash 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 n tn What is causing this red, itching, burning rash under my right breast? It is driving me crazy & spreading. Please help me!
Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar f tn Last August I got a strange red, nipple rash 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 rash (itchy, red, dry) slightly under one breast 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 under the breast but now it seems to encompass the entire upper chest area (breast 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 rash under my breast 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 rash on my breast 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 breast; 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 area when someone is over weight, and under the breast. 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 breast infections are in young women, inflammatory breast 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.
