How do you get rid of yeast infections under the breast?

I have recently started working out and am a 44D. From this I have had continuous yeast infections under both breast. I've tried cornstarch, otc yeast infection medicines and so on and they seem to help for a while, then the infection comes back worst than ever. Has anyone dealt with this before and if so how did you get rid of them?

  • this is gonna sound odd but athletes foot cream!

    most likely it's not a true yeast infection but a bacterial infection due to the moisture of the large breasts resting on your skin. the trapped moisture causes the bacteria to grow.

  • use what the others said and also it helps if you wear a bra all day long, invest in some really good sports bras to help keep them up at night so the skins not touching
