IT’S NOT UNHEARD OF!
One fine morning you wake up with a rash under your boobs and your perfect life seems to go haywire.
Rashes under the breast are quite common and often inescapable especially in women who are larger breasted or are very active physically. It is a kind of bacterial or a skin rash that comes about between skin folds causing inflammation. The skin-on-skin area averts moisture (caused by friction, sweat, heat, and lack of air circulation) from evaporating, that develops into a fungal infection. Consequently, these factors serves as a breeding ground for these microorganisms to flourish and build-up in such sticky and shaded environment.
SOME OF THE ALARMING SYMPTOMS
Experiencing itching, redness, dryness or painful sores under one or both boobs? It’s the dreadful rash!
Here are some of the common symptoms:
- An unpleasant odor
- Raw and sensitive skin
- A red or brown rash
- Flaky or cracked skin
OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE
There are plenty of effective approaches that can be followed in order to prevent or manage a bra rash. Decrease in the friction, boosting air circulation or minimizing the level of dampness, the following tips will help in overcoming the issue –
- Don the perfect fit bra
Bra fit problems plague women most of the time resulting in breast sags and skin problems such as Intertrigo. The prime step in curing this skin issue is to choose a well fitted bra that prevents your skin from chafing. Opt for breathable material ones to curtail the amount of moisture in that area.
- Hygiene practices
Another way to prevent under breast chafing is to keep the area dry, clean and fresh daily. Shower regularly with luke warm water and exfoliate the area at least once a week to get rid of any dead skin cells. Dry thoroughly with a clean towel post the shower.
- Wear moisture wicking cloth materials
Sweat gets trapped within the fabric and takes a while to dry, which is uncomfortable and can cause skin to inflame. Wear loose fitted and sweat wicking fabrics that will help you stay dry throughout the day.
- Watch your diet
The food you eat and what you drink can trigger sweat collection. This usually happens when you eat certain foods that are hard to digest. The body has to work a bit harder, which increases your heart rate and sends signals to your sweat glands telling them to get to work. So eat accordingly.
