Thank you for the update to this older post... it's very timely for me because I just broke out in a rash that is driving me nuts, and I can only link it to recently getting glutened at a restaurant (I know, I know..) Tasted some soup the waitress assured me was only thickened with corn starch and later found out it was wheat flour.

 

my rash is around my bra line, under my arms, but I've never had it in remission long enough to really test it.

 

That's EXACTLY where the rash I just got is! I've been scratching like mad for a week and a half... :(

Ugh. Wear sleeves that let it breathe. Dove antiperspirant/deoderant was ok as was Tom's. don't use a salt deoderant-burns like a sob.

Moisturize.

Ice packs every chance you get.

I'd slough off the scabs in the shower - just gently rub with your fingers.

Wear a bra that doesn't rub it. I bought cheap jms/playtex at Walmart because they'd get ruined.

Thanks for the tips, the bra is driving me crazy! Driving home late the other night, I was pulling off my bra on the highway (luckily no one was around) And the underarms lol... I keep running to the restroom at work just to scratch.

Take it off every chance you can get. I'm not kidding, buy a cheap one and cut the arm holes out larger, if you have to.

Ice packs. Have a freezer at work? Take some.

Try some numbing cream/liquid and dab it.
