How do you manage inverse psoriasis under the breasts?

How do you keep comfortable with inverse psoriasis? I cannot wear a bra, so I wear a camisole under my top. It is so hot, I cannot stop sweating and am feeling even more uncomfortable. I take methotrexate and am at a dose where my Dr doesn’t want to give me more (which I am fine with) but I am sore and don’t know what to wear. This sucks! What are your strategies for managing inverse psoriasis under the breasts?

    Thanks Cathy!

    I admit I am feeling sorry for myself at the moment, do appreciate the support.

    I am taking methotrexate and have various topical creams. Over the years I have tried many things, and I don’t want to dwell on the negative, but have never been in remission. The only time I was clear was when I pregnant.

    Thanks for listening.

    I don’t suffer from inverse, but I do have a number of guttate spots under my breasts these days, and boy is it a pain. The hot, humid weather is not helping and I want to burn my bra every day. I use coconut oil to reduce friction/chafing, but I too struggle with finding things that help! Just wanted to say you’re not alone out there 🙂

    Inverse psoriasis can be a real challenge, @sinceiwasfive. Have you been given anything topical to use on it?

    I’m not sure I have any suggestions for what to wear (when I had psoriasis under my bust I just wore a bra that didn’t have any underwire) but I found diaper cream really helpful for preventing the skin rubbing against itself and getting more aggravated. I also used a medicated powder to help with keeping the area less sweaty, and prevent any fungal infection from taking advantage. In the end, UVB phototherapy cleared it up, although I do still flare sometimes in the summer. I really hope you are able to find something that helps. Hugs!
