Put cornstarch in the folds to absorb the moisture and relieve the itching.

I believe the 2 best products to use for rashes are Desenex Powder 2% Miconazole Nitrate Antifungal. And also Nystatin powder, an Antifungal (Prescription). You never want to use any product that is moist, like an ointment or cream.

Rashes have to remain dry. A lot of rashes like this are caused by Yeast. I hope this helps? When the rash improves, you can use any baby powder.

You might have a yeast infection. (I didn't think we could get yeast infections on other parts of the body, either.) Better get to a doctor if it's at all possible. If not, use athletes' foot powder. There's a brand called Silka that I use all the time, and Amazon is the best place for me to get it.

It's finer and smells better than the brand my dermatologist recommended, and I've used the drugstore brands, too. My doctor gave me some lotion and some ointment along with the powder, and it cleared up in just a few days.

Please check with your doctor before doing this...and I say this because this is probably a yeast OR fungal infection and if you scratch and it gets infected it can cause a lot of problems that you do not want to mess with including MRSA.

Also, it is very important that you verify that nothing else is going on because yeast and fungal infections can be a sign of other more serious health problems and you will want that nipped in the bud ASAP! Prayers for healing!

If your doctor gives the OK and an otherwise clean bill of health, ask if suggested using dandruff shampoo as a body wash to keep issues like this at bay. This is what our dermatologist suggested.

I was very skeptical, but she said it works. For every day use, I have found the generic of the head and shoulders brand works fine. When it gets really bad, she prescribed some brand that you can get from the pharmacist and is expensive, but a little bit goes a long way. The problem with the one that is the prescription is it burns like heck and has a very bad smell. It smells like acid, but it does work.

I hope you get a clean bill of health and the above can work for you. It was a miracle cure for me!

Look in the foot fungus medicines for a generic TOLNAFTATE 1% antifungal cream. I get -what I'm guessing is the same kind of rash, under my breasts at my bra band, and under my belly roll. It gets red and sore, but itchy too. It even hurts to wash it in the shower. I'm overweight and when i get sweaty, the rash breaks out in skin folds. My doctor told me to use the tolnaftate. It's in many antifungal creams, but the generic works just as well and costs a LOT less.

To use, GENTLY cleanse the affected area, dry well, and apply liberally. It may take a couple days of treatment, but it starts to help almost immediately. You can also use it as a prevention so you don't get the rash. Just put a light coating on dry skin if you think or know you are going to get hot and sweaty, or even as an everyday thing. Sure beats getting that rash.

Nystatin powder is the only thing I have ever found that helps. You do need a prescription for it though. You should see a doctor regardless just to make sure its not a yeast or fungal infection that can spread to other areas and endanger your health. A health professional will be able to provide you with the quickest and best resolution particular to you especially. What works on one, doesnt work on all. So, I suggest getting it checked out.

Hope you feel better soon!
