Yeast infections on and under the breasts can spread to the armpit area creating even a bigger problem. The sores flake and weep, and the person with the infection experiences excruciating pain. It hurts to roll over in bed, to reach into a cabinet, to shut a car door.
There are definitely options within the medical community for treating a rash on your breasts. Before undergoing any type of home remedy, including this one, consult your physician.
Here are the top 3 home remedies for healing a yeast infection on your breasts:
Coconut oil. Recently there have been some amazing properties attributed to this tropical treasure. Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that actually cause the cell walls of harmful bacteria and fungus to break down.
Candida, or yeast infections, are a type of fungal growth. The fact that coconut oil combats yeast is great news for yeast infection sufferers. Coconut oil can be applied topically to the yeast infection on your breast, not only providing moisture to your dry, scaly, weeping skin, but also antiseptic properties. Moreover, coconut oil can prevent this infection from coming back. Imagine how wonderful that would be.
Tea tree oil. Useful for treating everything from acne to warts, tea tree oil has impressive antibacterial and antifungal properties. Try adding a few drops to olive oil or vitamin E. Apply topically to the infected area 2-3 times per day.
Vitamin E will alleviate the pain and irritation, and tea tree oil will combat the infection.
Oregano oil. Oregano is a powerful agent for fighting fungal and bacterial infections. Tablets and droplet are being produced as an exceptional home remedy for the common cold. When it comes to rashes on your skin, this potent solution containing carvacrol as a valuable ingredient, is invaluable to treating the infection on your skin. Exercise caution when working with oregano oil—it is very strong and can cause a burning sensation on the skin. You will want to make sure it is properly diluted before applying to the skin.
Make a salve out of all three to treat the rash under your breasts. Melt the coconut oil over low heat, then pour into a heat-safe vessel such as a canning jar. Before it cools, add a few drops of tea tree oil and oregano oil. Just before the salve is cool, stir it to more evenly distribute the tea tree and oregano oil. This salve can also be used to prevent future infections.
