Red, Painful Skin Around Under The Breast?
Hello. I want to ask. My skin suddenly became sore and red maybe because I was wearing the bra too tight. I realized that when I took off the bra my skin was sore and red like a rash. It’s been 3 days yet to recover. It doesn’t itch and if you touch it, it hurts and feels hot. I gave white kayi oil, it felt like it was going to blister. only red, there were no spots. Why is that? What is the solution? I am also in good health, no flu, fever and the like. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Indeed, using a bra that is too tight can cause the skin to become irritated, making it look red, painful, and burning hot. This condition, if there are no other complications, should improve within 1 to 2 days after you are no longer wearing this tight bra. However, if your complaint lasts longer, then you should be vigilant, it is feared that there are other conditions that complicate it.
Apart from using a bra that is too tight, there could also be complaints on your skin due to other triggers, including:
Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with an irritating substance, for example detergents, certain chemical substances) Burns, for example from sunburn or other chemicals Allergic contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to an allergy to a substance in contact with the skin , for example certain bra materials) Herpes zoster (Varicella zoster virus infection which affects nerve fibers to the surface of the skin) Impetigo (bacterial infection) Tinea corporis (fungal infection) Other infections, such as candidiasis, scabies, miliaria, insect bites, etc. If this condition you are experiencing, we recommend that you consult a doctor or a skin specialist. Through direct clinical examination, doctors generally can identify possible triggers as well as the best treatment for the complaints you experience. Mild conditions generally get better with topical medications, for example in the form of powders, ointments, or creams.
At this point, you shouldn't overdo any rashes that appear on your skin just yet. Improve your personal hygiene, namely by bathing regularly 2 times a day, changing clothes (including underwear) at least 2 times a day, and not changing clothes with other people, especially those with infectious skin diseases. Do not use clothes (including bras) that are too tight just yet. To improve pain and heat, you can first compress the skin that is experiencing complaints with a cold compress.
Hope it helps ..
