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.
Case Study 20 Eric Bakker Chronic Candida Yeast Infection
I'm going to do another case history, andthis is going to be my case history. It's going to be quite different. This is a 25yearoldguy called Eric Bakker. In 1986, he was just turning 26. So this is my own personal story.You might like to hear my personal story on how I came to really develop a burning passionfor helping people like you out there with Candida.You may like to hear my own personal story about the yeast infection I used to have whenI was in my 20s. I used to live by myself in a small house in a place called Brisbanein Australia, and this little house was in a suburb that was prone to flooding. It wascheap rent, and I was working in a flourmill
at the time. I'd been living on my own forabout five years at that point. One week I would work the day shift. One week I'd workthe afternoon shift. And the following week, I would work the night shift.I started to feel increasingly stressed and tired and one winter developed a bad cough.It got worse to the point where I took an antibiotic. My little house was cold and damp,and I had to bail water out of my bedroom after it rained heavily. I did tell you itwas cheap rent. The walls were covered in a thin, moist film that I later discoveredwas mold. My diet wasn't the best at times. I was craving sweet foods, take out, and lotsof bread. Either my bowels were blocked or
I was experiencing diarrhea and lots of gas.I felt terrible, and my health was going downhill fast. My skin started to get itchy and I developeda bad case of athlete's foot and jock itch. To give you a background on all this, a fewyears prior, I had 13 amalgam fillings replaced over a period of two weeks in 1983. I startedto notice that my health was beginning to deteriorate and by early '85, I was feelingincreasingly anxious. I developed skin rashes, athlete's foot, and many manifestations ofa Candida yeast infection, all unbeknown to me at the time, including very strong sweetcravings. I had issues with my girlfriend who thoughtI was a hypochondriac because my health had
deteriorated to the point where I had to seekmedical help. But the was of little help because all the tests results came backnormal, and he wanted me to see a psychiatrist. I knew I wasn't going crazy. I knew that therewas something undermining my health, and I couldn't put a finger on it until I read theYeast Connection by William Crook and then later I read the Missing Diagnosis by Orion Truss. I've read about 50 books since then on Candida, but the first one byCrook was quite a good book. My girlfriend at the time started to doubtme and told me that my problems were all in my head. A view strongly supported by hermother and that I needed to wake up to myself.
See a shrink and take antidepressants. Idecided to end that unsupportive relationship and move out of their flat and had a garagesale a few weekends later to downsize. A naturopath was looking through some of my gear at a garagesale and asked me why I had dark circles under my eyes. I told her about my health and thefirst thing she told me was to get a hair analysis to determine the mercury levels becauseshe thought the mercury fillings being replaced, it could have caused a problem. And she saidthere may be a connection there with that and the Candida.I went to see her and showed her Crook's book, and what she said made a heck of a lotof sense. And I started getting treatment
for my yeast infection. Unfortunately, shedidn't walk me through a proper mercury detoxification, I felt very, very sick, and I had a bad Herxheimerreaction. I had a lot of vomiting and diarrhea for quite a few weeks. And this, in fact,was one of the lowest points in my life. When at one point, I had considered taking my ownlife because I was so unsupported. No one wanted to listen to me. I felt terrible. The told me I was nuts. My mother said I was crazy. My girlfriend didn't listen.Is it any wonder people jump off bridges or do crazy things? If no one is there to listento you at all, all the doors get closed in your face. There's no support at all. What'sthe point in living even? When you're at your
