Okay, this is embarrassing. But, every single day, middle part and underneath my breasts stinks really badly. I am very clean. I shower DAILY. the smell is so yucky it makes me feel disgusting. Please help me!
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Intertrigo is inflammation of the skin body folds (can occur under breasts, axilla, groin). This inflammation is worsened by heat , moisture or friction.
Secondary infection of these areas can occur, either bacterial infection or fungal infection.
The presence of infection along with inflammation is likely the reason for the odor.
Treatment would involve: (1)need to reduce aggravating factors- heat, moisture and friction by keeping the folds separated however possible.
The use of absorbent powders , cotton material would help.
Avoiding tight closing would also be important.
(2)the use of a cream such as triple paste would be help.
This cream has zinc oxide paste, petrolatum, aluminum . This means it would provide barrier protection to prevent surfaces from interacting.
If this cream is not available then any zinc based cream would help eg desitin
(3)would also need topical anti fungal and a topical anti bacterial cream
Eg of topical anti fungal creams are ketoconazole, nystatin, miconazole
Topical anti fungals and topical anti bacterial would available over the counter.
Summary: -(1) intertrigo with secondary infection (fungal, bacterial
(2)reduce friction, moisture, heat
(3)separate surfaces, use barrier creams, cotton material
(4)anti bacterial creams, anti fungal creams
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
