Question Chaffing Between the Ladies ;)

So I'm rather full busted currently measuring a 32K
In the last two weeks I've developed a horrible rash between "The Ladies" that won't go away. It's pretty much exactly what you would see with chaffing between thighs
Has anyone else dealt with this? I've tried using baby powder, but it only keeps me comfortable for so long
Any natural products that anyone can recommend?
TIA Mamas

Are you sure it's not actually yeast? Like if you've leaked and gotten milk in that area, or even from the heat... you might want to go in and have it looked at. I know that can't be fun!
Otherwise I'd try cornstarch instead of baby powder, or maybe some coconut oil; if it IS thrush coconut oil has antibac properties. Hopefully you get it figured out!
Oh, I'd also go w/out a bra if you can, that way the girls aren't so close together and can breathe. After DS 1 was born we coslept so I just slept w/a towel tossed over me so the girls could breathe. lol. nursing tanks/bras w/the full slings may be more helpful as well, if you don't have any?

I agree, might be yeast... I got yeast on the skin there before I was ever preggo just from heat. Get a bra that separates the ladies, and try athlete's foot cream. (I eventually took tablets for mine - the internal version of the athlete's foot or vaginal yeast infection stuff - by prescription.)

Good luck!

Re: Chaffing Between the Ladies ;)

What about putting a re-usable nursing pad (I have homemade ones that are the same on both sides) between the ladies to keep them apart after a little powder?

I don't think it's a yeast infection I can try putting some clotrimazole on it to see if it helps, but it doesn't look yeasty to me
The problem with buying another bra is that I have literally tried on every bra, but because of the size of my band and the rather large cupsize, only Bravado customs fit me and are comfortable
Thanks Mamas

Well, you Mamas were right It was/is in fact yeast
I have applied clotrimazole 3 times in the last 24 hours and it's almost gone
How yucky though, yeast between the boobies

Re: Chaffing Between the Ladies ;)

Just noticed a itchy rash between my girls tonight , and I am betting it is yeast too. My biggest fear is that it will cause thrush.... does/can this happen?
