Hi...i have flaky, dry patches on my breast. I have had them for years but without any relieve. I have used antifungal creams but none has worked. But the Doctors keep telling me its a fungus but i cant seem to get these annoying dry patches off my breasts. Can you please shed some light on this BIG problem that I have. Thank you in advance:o

  • Maybe you could try a moisturing cream to put on your breasts along with the antifungal cream. How long have you been treating this? Or had this problem?

Thank you in advance:o Hi...I have had this fungus on my breast 6yrs when i was in the Army. The dermatologist told me it was from constantly wearing my uniform (i had to wear t-shirts under them constantly). So since i live in Barbados and its constantly hot...it didnt do me any justice. But now that i have left the army almost 2yrs now its still there. I have been treating this problem for at least 7yrs. Thanks in advance:)

  • It sounds like you are saying that it is worsened by the heat and wearing your uniform all the time in the past. I hope I got that right. If so, maybe try putting the fungus cream on along with baking soda to keep the area as dry as possible. Maybe the reason the fungus isn't going away is because heat is always in the area of your breasts and sweat gets in there and it doesn't have a chance to dry and heal. I have a problem where I get a rash underneath mine and if I don't use powder all the time, it actually will develop into a yeast infection underneath my breasts. You would think your doctors would have an answer after all this time for you. That is just terrible. Remember, the best thing to use is baking soda (Or powder, cant remember which one..The one that comes in the yellow box). Don't use baby powder or any talc powders or scented powders.
