Customer Question

I have developed overnight a red smelly weeping rash between my breasts, it came on very quickly, at first it just red then tonight it has started weeping a smelly yellow liquid that is quite awful. As it's Friday evening and I can't get to see my GP I have cleansed and applied an antiseptic cream. Is this the correct thing to do?

Hello from JA
It is most likely fungal and the cream won't help much.
A cream called chlortrimazole from the drug store is more likely to help.

You still need to show this to your doctor, or if it still gets worse go to A & E.
