cleavage smell

For a year i have noticed and strange smell coming from my cleavage [the area between the breasts and under them] i have no idea what it is or what is causing it. The area also itches very much. I bathe everyday but several hours later the smell comes back. I wear a bra so i dont know what it could be.

Anyone else experience this? could it be a fungus or infection?

IT'S YEAST!  We all have yeast on our bodies - these little crevices that don't get aired out regularly have a tendency to create these wonderful little environments for yeast to take over when our body chemistry changes ever so slightly.  It's no big deal unless the skin starts breaking down - keep it clean and dry.
