I have not used any thing to apply on it as I don't know what they are.I have had it for a month now

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Your symptoms suggest that could have developed either a mild contact dermatitis or a fungal infection. The dermatitis could be a result of irritation from your clothes. Fungal infections are very common in warm humid areas covered by clothes.

Neither of the causes will affect the baby and you can continue to breastfeed.

Please apply Lotrimin ointment once a day and Cortisone ointment once a day , wiping them off before you breastfeed. Both are available without a prescription.

This will help control the spots. if you see a recurrence after 1 week of using the ointments, please consult a doctor.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
