Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

Two nights ago, I developed two itchy and somewhat painful rashes under my breast. How can I treat and alleviate them?

Answered by Dr. Sharon Gopalan

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

You can try applying a topical antibiotic such as Fusidin or Fusidin-H. If there is no improvement, oral antibiotics like Doxycycline or Erythromycin for 1-2 weeks may be necessary. Additionally, use a sulfur soap to cleanse the affected area during showers and ensure it remains dry and well-ventilated. Avoid sweating as it can exacerbate the condition.

 

Thanks
