any fellow busty women or medical people that can offer advice?

So this summer is the worst with epic boob sweat. The problem is my bust is so large I'm starting to develop irritation on the underside of my breasts.

I try to wear a clean bra every day, shower every night. And I'm using neosporin after I shower and dry off.

But nothing helps during the day. My mom and I work at the same place and we go walking outside on lunch. 30 minutes in and it hurts.

Powders won't last long or I'd just powder myself up every day.

By the time I get to the gym I'm already irritated and facing more boob sweat and pain.

Help a busty sister out? :(

    Lol I would have to find an unscented one! I might look into this.

    I wonder if this "chub rub" stuff I heard exists (no idea what it actually is though) might help.

    My skin in so sensitive though.

    Good luck with irritation too! Let me know if the deodorant works!

    I wear a tank top underneath my bra when I go to the gym, it really helps.

    This is a bit "out there" and it's advice from a bloke .......... And it's not rude or suggestive! I do quite a bit of cycling, whilst wearing cycle shirts with the padded bits to protect "the nethers" which, frankly, get hot and sweaty.
    I and millions of other cyclists use what is called chamois cream. It's great for preventing all that irritation and discomfort similar to that which I imagine would be suffered by ladies such as your good selves. You'll find the stuff on every cycling equipment website. And it lasts for ages!
    Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

    EDIT FAIL!!! It should read "cycle shorts" not "cycle shirts" - though I have applied the same cream to prevent the excruciating pain which is "nipple cripple" which can happen on really long cycles!

    Hiya! I use go old vaseline with a little aloe vera gel. A little sticky but it works for me. I don't tend to sweat too much, I use it for the bra rub/irritation I used to get when running. The body glide sounds good..

    I'm a busty lady too (36DD) and I understand where you're coming from. I don't have this problem during my regular daily routine as I'm not a heavy sweater, but I do sweat when I'm working out hard. What helps me is a compression sports bra. It will give you FULL support so the underside of your breasts will remain raised all day long, preventing the excessive sweating and skin irritation. You should really consider wearing something like that to work and see how it works out for you. Good luck!!

    I did not know big breasts had such a dark underbelly!

    This has tainted my view of large pillows.

    as a female with big boobs and a medical professional, my only advice to you is to invest in bras with better support and use baby powder often.

    or

    I haven't used it for under-boob issues, but it's been great for thigh "chub rub" during running (I live in Florida, just walking outside causes sweat).
    Also, my husband swears by the stuff for man-chafe. He uses the Gold Bond spray every day.

    I would also look for sports bras that have a wicking band that fits snuggly under your boobs and around your ribs. That should help keep away the skin on skin contact.

    ive big very big boobs but never had this problem.. i wear well supporting bras like a balconette style under a couple of very tight vest tops when work out.. check your wearing the correct bra size.. some people get the band size wrong you may need a smaller band size.

    QFT. Mine cleared right up once I got resized.

    Before that though I used a product called 'fresh breasts' that applied like a cream but dried to a powder. I found it on amazon.
