Itchy red rash and bad smell under breasts. Should i be concerned ?

Hello im 20 yrs old and have a 1 yr old, its been about a week now an i have noticed a weird sour smell under my breasts.. I have a red rash also and when i touch it it turns itchy and starts to burn really bad.. The smell recently came to my attention since the smell is really bad and i was wondering what it is or how can i treat it? I dont have health insurance to go get it checked out... Its gotten to the point that i dont want my husband around me for that same reason

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You must have developed a fungal infection under your breast. this is a common problem in lactating mothers. I Advise you to visit your gynecologist and get examined to confirm the diagnosis. Meanwhile you can use over-the-counter antifungal medication like Candid to relieve your symptoms. Please maintain proper hygiene and wear loose clothes.
Take care

it is common at this site in female
it is due to friction ,humidity ,perspiration .
keep it dry and clean
apply clotrimazole and steroid cream at night and clotrimazole powder in morning
