Support Bra!: you must be referring to the axillary tail of the breast. One thing that may help alot is right fitting supportive maternity bras: wider straps soft cups as opposed to underwire cotton and breathable fabrics to keep you cool Also: loose fitting clothes try cold compress over the area warm showers
