Bra Strap Skin Rash on Older Skin
I have worn the same pair of bras for around 10 years. They were an expensive brand purchased with the help of the specialist assistant at Selfridge's and I had no trouble until I turned 64, when I began to find that I had developed a bumpy red rash on my back beneath and around the strap sites. I have switched to a sports bra for home wear but find that even that and summer vest straps cause irritation so now I just wear a T-shirt without bra when possible and the rash then dies down. I use E-45 cream twice a day on the rash and this helps but I have to wear my standard bra to go out. I have been slim even wiry nearly all my adult life so is it something to do with having a layer of fat now under my skin? Or could it be a shift in posture as my shoulders tend to lean forwards more as my bone density goes down? Or could it be that my skin is drier and thinner? Surely I don't have to live with this rash forever!
