What causes itching under the breasts?

Hello, I have a large oval shaped flat to the surface red spot under and to the left of my Right breast. I had some itching under both breasts caused by a moist environment but that has gone away with using cotton bras and better diligence, etc. I did scratch those areas when the itching was intense but generally avoided scratching the area. This condition happened about three months ago but this spot remains. This discoloration is not painful and there are no textural skin changes. The size is approximately 5x2.5 inches.

These are the skin changes related to irritation and inflammation via bra straps. Proper care with a sterile dressing, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs will help to heal it faster.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
