Painful Bumpy Rash Under My Breast Only When I Wear Underwire Bra Allergy
Possibilities: I agree w the 2 other answers you received. However, direct contact with metal is not common. If the bra is worn out it could expose the underwire. However there is a thick cloth channel surrounding it & the wire is coated in plastic. The underwire can actually break. Yeast infections are not uncommon & excessive pressure from the wire against skin can be problematic. ...Read more

Not cancer: Cancer usually does not itch you need to have someone examine the area if the problem persists.

I have underArm bruises with on and off rashes, size 36K breasts and try to wear fitting bras and most times I do not wear a bra at home, causes?
Perhaps the rashes are due to an allergy? I would try a different deodorant.
Liquid washing products and clothes drying additives can also be a source of allergic sources.
The bruises might be due to small size bra. Google bra fitting and they tell you how to measure and calculate fit. If bra pinches it could possibly bruise the skin.
Hope these ideas help. ...Read more

There is also no skin or blood test for such an allergy but that doesn't mean it can't be done. A double-blind challenge is the method used to establish a relationship between a cause & an effect. Your local allergist can help. ...Read more

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed a almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy also. Is this bad?
If reacting to bra..: If skin reacts to a sticky bra's adhesive, or to the material in the bra, she can avoid using that brand of bra. For such an itchy rash, sometimes using a few days of over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream will help the irritated skin get back to normal. A mole in that location would itch too, but should also return to normal. Otherwise, one can get a primary doctor's or dermatologist's exam. ...Read more
Red inflammed rash under breast from improper bra, sweating from it-not always itchy, sometimes itchy. Have it for 4 days now. What to put on it, steroids?
I am experiencing rash on back, under breast and under armpit along bra line, worst under the hook of my bra. They are like big VERY ITCHY red bumps?
You may be allergic to something in your bra and the metal in the bra hook. You may try a different make of bra and one with a plastic hook. Wash the bra thoroughly before use. See that your bra is not too tight.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
