Thanks for the query.

According to your description there is possibility of yeast infection.
Which can develop in the hot and moist areas like around breast and genital parts.
As you are having excess weight that will aggravate the problem.
So you better once consult gynecologist get examined and take treatment accordingly.
Meanwhile try to decrease your weight, take bath twice a day, prefer cotton inner wear, take plenty of oral fluids.
