A skin condition, called intertrigo, usually causes a rash under your breast or breasts between skin folds. It is a very often occurring condition throughout your life.
Is it a sign of a skin cancer?
There’s no need to panic if your breast looks red or swollen. Often a tender area or breast rash indicates an infection that is common. It is a common, treatable skin condition. Signs of inflammatory breast cancer can rarely be a rash and soreness, a form of a disease that can grow fast, often in weeks or months.

Humidity, heat, lack of air flowing between skin plates (where skin rubs against the skin) can be the main causes for the rash under the breast. In rare cases, other physical conditions may have an effect to cause rashes under the breasts.
What causes rash under breast during pregnancy
During pregnancy, circulating the hormone and gaining weight can make you more likely to rash between breasts. You may also experience some rashes unique to pregnancy in addition to hot or sweat rashes. This may include a condition known as pruritis hives and plaques or PUPPP.
Small red bumps and hives on the body develop in this condition. Even if the stomach usually begins, the bumps can stretch into the breasts.
Rash under breast after COVID vaccine
We can’t find a direct cause of the vaccine to rash breasts. However, some people can have a COVID-19 vaccine allergic reaction. If that happens, after your vaccine, you may notice a rash or hives.
The non-serious or serious allergic reactions to the vaccine COVID-19 may be classified as:
Non-serious: Allergic non-serious reactions occur within 4 hours after vaccination. Signs like hives, swelling, and wheaing can be included.
Severe: Anaphylaxis is known as this type of reaction. It usually takes place within minutes of vaccination and may involve hives, swelling of the face and throat, as well as dizziness.
Rash under breast smells like vinegar
The breasts, face, scalp, perineum, and underarms contain apocrine glands. They make less sweat than eccrine glands and open to the hair follicles. Apocrine sweat may smell.
Sweat is primarily water and sodium chloride but is also a source of potassium, calcium, ammonia, urea, lactate, and ethanol, which are small in quantities. Sweat can be a smell that may smell like vinegar by mixing with bacteria in the skin.
