DermTV How to Treat Under Breast Rashes Infections DermTV Epi 190
Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Rashes under the breast tend to occur if theskin of the lower part of the breast lies flat against the skin below thebreast. That tends to happen at a certain timelife whether it's fromage, gravity, from having had chilen or just from the way that you'rebuilt. Whether you know it or not, your skin perspires all the time butwhen skin lies flat against
another layer of skin that perspiration orsweat can't evaporate and moisture accumulates. When moisture accumulatesin closed areas, like skin against skin, it promotes the growth of bacteriaand other germs and that creates odors and that can lead to infections.The most common infections that occurthis context, on the under partof the breast, are yeast infections and bacterial infections. To helpprevent this, very simply, after you shower treat this area with thesame antiperspirant that you use under your arms. If that's not effectiveat sufficiently decreasing the
sweating, then take a thin piece of cottonmaterial and place that thin piece of material under andthe fold belowthe breast on both sides to help absorb moisture. If you actually do developa rash below your breast usually it manifests as itchy little red bumpswith some oozing. Usually this is very uncomfortable. It's probablya yeast infection and the best way to treat it is with milk and water compressesand the instructions, for those is discussedDermTV Episode 15.In addition, over the counter Mikonazol lotion applied very lightly twoor three times a day, will often
help cure a yeast infection. And by the way,this may seem counter intuitive, but soapthese circumstancesis bad it's not good and soap will actually make the infection worse. Ifthese simple measures don't help improve your rash then see your dermatologistfor further treatment.
How To Treat DiaperYeast Rash
Hey everyone, I am here today to do a tutorial for you on how to treat a diaper rash. I will be covering two types of diaper rashes. The inevitable regular diaper rash that almost every baby will get at some point, and the eaded yeast diaper rash. Emilia is six months old now,
and I would say up until around the four and a half month mark, I was definitely a Pamper's mommy. Around that time, I started getting really concerned on how often she was getting diaper rashes, and if there wasn't a diaper rash, there was usually some sort of red irritation.
So I started to do research and I was horrified at how many chemicals arebaby products. That is the time that I discovered The Honest Company. The key to preventing and treating a diaperrash is to create a barrier. Before we used The Honest Company,
I would use Desitin and baby powder at every diaper change. Since we have switched brands, now I use The Honest Company's Organic HealingBalm. They do have a diaper rash cream but I prefer the Organic Healing Balm because it serves multiple purposes. We use it for the diaper changes,
cuts, scratches, I use it, it's awesome. I highly recommened it. This is a shot of it. It is pH balanced, hypoallerginic, and plantbased. I cannot say enough good things about this company. I will have a link down below so you can check it out
if it's something that you're interested in. Which brings us to the eaded yeast diaper rash!!! Luckily, my mother had some tips for me so it saved me a trip to the pediatrician. You can go to any ugstore or pharmacy, and you are looking for an antifungal cream.
