DermTV How to Treat Under Breast Rashes Infections DermTV Epi 190
Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Rashes under the breast tend to occur if theskin of the lower part of the breast lies flat against the skin below thebreast. That tends to happen at a certain time in life whether it's fromage, gravity, from having had children or just from the way that you'rebuilt. Whether you know it or not, your skin perspires all the time butwhen skin lies flat against
another layer of skin that perspiration orsweat can't evaporate and moisture accumulates. When moisture accumulatesin closed areas, like skin against skin, it promotes the growth of bacteriaand other germs and that creates odors and that can lead to infections.The most common infections that occur in this context, on the under partof the breast, are yeast infections and bacterial infections. To helpprevent this, very simply, after you shower treat this area with thesame antiperspirant that you use under your arms. If that's not effectiveat sufficiently decreasing the
sweating, then take a thin piece of cottonmaterial and place that thin piece of material under and in the fold belowthe breast on both sides to help absorb moisture. If you actually do developa rash below your breast usually it manifests as itchy little red bumpswith some oozing. Usually this is very uncomfortable. It's probablya yeast infection and the best way to treat it is with milk and water compressesand the instructions, for those is discussed in DermTV Episode 15.In addition, over the counter Mikonazol lotion applied very lightly twoor three times a day, will often
help cure a yeast infection. And by the way,this may seem counter intuitive, but soap in these circumstancesis bad it's not good and soap will actually make the infection worse. Ifthese simple measures don't help improve your rash then see your dermatologistfor further treatment.
How Do You Get Rid Of A Yeast Infection Under Your Breast
How do I get rid of a yeast infection undermy breast? This is a question I've been asked a couple of times. Not so much as many ofthe other ones, but it's an important one to answer. First thing to determine is whether it isa yeast infection or not, and sometimes a swab will do this. Sometimes a good visualinspection will give you that idea, but generally in areas like the folds of the skin aroundthe belly or under the breast or between the buttocks or even around the thigh area, ifa person's quite large, of course, this is going to be a perfect breeding ground forCandida. You've got the darkness, the moisture,
perspiration, all that in that area and Candidais going to like to grow in that area. The most obvious thing to do is to if it'spossible is to look at some kind of breast reduction or how we can stop this skin fromsort of like hanging together there creating that. Maybe a bra or some kind of a device,but you're going to spend regular attention to that area to help overcome it. This conditionneeds to be treated both locally as well as systemically.I've had many women from Australia, New Zealand; I've treated with this condition over thepast many years, and generally I find my satisfactory longterm resolution is weight loss. Weightloss will help because it's going to help
the body generally strengthen the immune system,increase digestive function, we can get the bowel back in order again, reduce the abilityof the body to grow Candida internally, and also help it, therefore, externally. And externally,we apply things like calendula cream or tea tree oil. We have showers twice per day. Wecan get a natural kind of a powder and put dry powder under the breast area there tokeep the moisture away from the region that's causing it. I wouldn't use fungal creams ifI were you. I'd probably use a tea tree oil cream, as you can get these kind of productsat a good health food shop, a good cream with tea tree oil.So dryness, sunshine, these are enemies of
Candida. Allowing sun exposure to that area.Keeping the area dry. Maybe some form of barrier for a while. Weight loss. Local application.Internal treatment. Internal treatment follow my Candida Crusher program. Go to yeastinfection .Do my quiz on CandidaCrusher to determine if you're mild, moderate or severe and thendefinitely treat the outcome based on the quiz. The quiz is amazing. We spent a lotof time and money on that quiz to get it perfect. It's the best quiz online. So you'll be ableto determine with a high degree of accuracy how bad this is affecting you internally aswell as around the breast region. So give those suggestions a go. Thanks fortuning in.
