Actually skin yeast infections aren't that uncommon. You can get a yeast infection just about anywhere to be honest.

Yes! You can use a antifungal cream, like for athletes foot on it.

You can get yeast on any part of your body that's damp and warm. Rub some monistat on it. I use powders under my b**bs for that reason.

Yep, you can get one anywhere there is moisture. A friend of mine in college got one in her belly button.

This exactly. Apply it an athletes foot cream, such as Lotramin, twice a day. Keep the area as dry as possible!

Powder and lots of it. Try to keep cool and wear a cotton bra that'll wick the sweat away. When you get out of the shower use your hair dryer to really dry under your b**bs.

I used to get it bad under my breasts b/c I was not wearing a good bra. I have bigger b**bs and would sweat alot under them. Now, I wear a great supportive bra to keep them lifted up and I put baby powder under them everytime I bathe lol.

I have big b**bs too which is why they sweat so bad I believe (44 E) I will take all the advice and hopefully it will get better! I need to buy a new bra
