A rash under the breasts is a very common problem and is typically caused by the sagging of the breasts, leaving skin laying on skin. That sag can be caused by size, post breast feeding, age, weight loss, or any other number of factors. When there is skin on skin the possibility of chafing exists. Under breast rashes are caused by lack of air circulation, heat, sweat, or an ill-fitting bra. When your bra does not fit properly, sags and folds occur. That allows bacteria move in. These microorganisms thrive in this damp, dark environment. Chafing and intertrigo is very uncomfortable, especially when putting on a bra.
The best way to prevent under breast chafing is to keep the skin dry, clean and fresh.
There are a lot of products out there that try to help eliminate the reason for under breast sweat and chafing. But if you already have chafing, you need to be careful about what you put on your rash.
