I have been having problems with both of my breasts again. Right side I figured out had a crack and the left side may also but the whole breast hurts off and on. No bumps and no red spots. Anyway, tonight I noticed a rash under my breast. Not on it, under it. Like on my stomach. It doesn't itch or anything though. I am very large chested (F). I googled and yeast infections came up but everyone talked about how badly they itched and I don't at all. Wth??

You can get yeast infection there, but it could also just be a heat rash from sweating, and your bra. Put some unscented lotion under your breasts, and keep them as dry as possible so that it doesn't turn into yeast.

I get those in the summer when I sweat a lot, I steal my DD butt paste put it on and it's gone overnight.

I had something similar off and on for years. I used an antifungal spray and it went away.

I had a yeast rash at one point. I used a very diluted solution of grapefruit seed extract & water to help kill off the yeast.

It was super irritating when I had it - itchy & annoying when clothes touched it.

Also wash all of your clothes/bras in hot water, that will help kill any yeast on your clothes.

I really don't think it's a yeast infection. Also this morning I noticed it's under the other side a bit too. I think it must be from being hot and sweating. It's been really hot here. No itching!! Just a little red. Stupid watermelons. I never wear a bra unless I'm going somewhere either. I figure why should I wear that contraption if I'm home (I used to like wearing a bra. Since breastfeeding I HATE it.)

I use gold bond powder when I get too hot and sweaty like that.

Heat can do it.. wearing an all cotton bra can help.
