Red patch between breasts, looks like a bruise, itching, sore, bumpy area. Cure?

I have this area between my breasts that is red, kinda discolored. My mom said it looked like a bruise . The area is always wet, like sweat build up, has a slight odor, and itches very bad. Today it hurt really bad, and was peeling. I checked it out, and saw this inflamed area that was very bumpy and sore. I always make sure the area is dry - I always make sure to clean it as well. I m not sure what it is, and it kind of scares me. I don t have an OB/GYN where i m at now. So please see if you can answer my question.

Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting

How long has the lesion been there? From your description it is a skin affection which could be due to infection (bacteria, fungi) or non-infectious (allergy, eczema). Had to tell exactly the kind of lesion without seeing it as your presentation is unspecific to any skin affection. But more likely we have atopic dermatitis/eczema,prurigo etc. You do not need to visit a gynobs for this as that is an dermatological problem which requires consultation with a dermatologist. You might require topical steroids plus/minus oral or topical antibiotics to deal with this. Antihistamines might be needed to control the itching especially if the cause of the affection is allergic.

Hope this helps and wish you the best
