IT IS RED AND BLOTCHY MORE LIKE DOTS THE AREA IS NOT RAISED, BUT IS VERY NOTICABLE...IT IS ALSO UNDERNEATH MY BREAST....THESE ARE TWO AREAS THAT DO SWEAT AL LITTLE AND FOR THE LONGEST TIME I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE OF MY WEIGHT GAIN OVER 117 LBS. IN THE LAST 2 YEARS BUT IT IS NOW WORSE THAN EVER AND IT IS VERY NOTICABLE AND EMBARRASSING AND ITCHES ALOT...WHAT IS THIS???

Maybe a yeast. Try some otc cream like miconazole.  Try to keep the areas clean and dry. See a dr if it does not resolve.

I have had the same symptoms over the last 3 yrs. The rash started under my breasts as little red spots under the skin and not raised. I have tried cortizone creams and otc yeast meds as recommended by my derm. Recently, it has spread up to my neck and seems to be getting worse. It seems to get worse when I sweat or get stressed. Anyboy have any ideas?
