2. Wash bra. A bra that has been used all day will be a source of bacteria and fungi. Moreover, the skin of the breast area is very sensitive. Then, wash your dirty bra.
Noteworthy is the bra should be washed and rinsed very clean. Exposure to chemicals, such as detergents, can also cause breast redness, itching and a rash.
3. Bra size. Women should wear a bra that fit the size of her breasts. If using a bra too small, then there is no room for the breast skin to breathe.
And if wearing a bra too big, then the bra will rub the skin and there was a rash and itching. Choose a bra with soft materials, such as cotton. To minimize this problem itchy breasts, the bra should be removed during the night.
4. Keep the humidity. If necessary, use a moisturizer regularly in the breast area to prevent dryness in the skin. May buy moisturizing cream and lotion on the market. However, you should not buy a moisturizer for sensitive skin with fragrance.
