I am 16 years old and I noticied for the past 6 months I have this line between my boobs. It consists of little bumps and sometimes it can be really itchy. I try to scrub it off everytime I take a shower but it makes the redness go away but it's still always there. I do sleep when a bra on at night and I always have bra's on that are either push-up or some form of bra that keeps my boobs held closely together. Does anyone know the answer to why I might have a rash in between them? I think it might be because of all the oils and sweats building up and because they are constantly rubbing on each other...I'm not sure though. Does anyone have a solution?

It could be like you said, the oils and moisture in that area. Also, I have had allergic reaction type rashes from certain type of bras, weird I know....maybe its the underwire they use? Anyways, just out of curiosity...why do wear a bra at night? I would think that would be so uncomfortable.....I can't wait to take mine off at the end of the day.

Ha! I know everyone seems to think it's weird, but I don't find it uncomfortable at all.. It's like normal to me. I think im going to start taking it off and then I will see if it gets better.

The rash sounds like prickly heat. This is commonly seen on babies in the warmer months. It is a rash that occurs due to heat and sweat. Try removing your bra at night. You can also dust the area with corn starch to help keep the skin cool and dry. Most baby powders are now corn starch so you can use one of those. Avoid talc as it can cause yeast infections and lung infections.

I think i have the same thing you are talking about. I just noticed it today and i go tanning. I believe it appeared after i was done tanning. I have had a similar rash from a tanning bed that itched like crazy but this time it doesn't itch at all....any help? (they look like little misquito bites)

I have had the same problem as well since around freshman year, I used to have pretty big boobs, but I began exercising a lot, and they've slimed down, taking off your bra at night would help, because they will have a chance of not rubbing each other, also it would be cooler, but I also use baby powder, and taking a shower right after you workout. Also don't use scented soap, or lotion, or spray around that area. It's a sensitive area, if you are at all allergic to fragrance ( like me ) scented things will agitate it.

I had gone to my dermatologist about my rash between my breasts. She said it is called Grovers disease. Yes, it's caused from sweating in that area. I also have a few spots on my back. She gave me a steroid cream to put on it. Cream is called, Desoximetasone. It's helping. At least it doesn't itch anymore and the spots are fading.
Rash will probably come and go, as air circulation down there is at a minimum. Hope this helps

To all,

Underwire and push-up type bras should not be worn as they cause all sorts of problems and the wearing of a bra at night, will give you more troubles. Let your breasts breed. It is not because you have bigger boobs that you should wear a bra 24/7. This is the wrong assumption. Try wearing cotton top at night to help soak any sweat around your breasts.
