Well, i guess sleeping in my sweaty nursing bra was a bad idea...and now i have an itchy pink area where the elastic was, in between cups. How do i soothe this, what is it - yeast?

Sounds like it might be yeast.  For your skin, either vaginal yeast infection or athlete's foot cream.  For your laundry, wash your bras, shirts, towels, and washcloths on hot with a cup of vinegar added in either a downy ball, the fabric softener compartment, or just poured in the tub.

I don't know if it's the same thing, but I had a little rash on my chest and put breastmilk on it. Cleared it RIGHT up.

If you sweat you can actually get a mild case of dermatitis, because the straps aren't breathable.

That's just contact dermatitis. It will clear up without further irritation to that area if you let it breathe. If it itches you can put some hydrocortisone cream on it.

Mine was spotty and super itchy and turned out to be yeast. :( Feel better!
