Rash!! under Brest and tummy
Mon, 04-15-2013 - 2:30pm
Hi all I have not been on this site for years... I am looking for advice. I have lost 90lb and if I do not where proper support underwear I will get a bad rash!!! I know that having the extra skin removed would be great but my health insurance does not cover it, and my Dr. won't call it a medical necessary. I have been in twice for the rash. 

My ? is what is the best way to prevent a rash if you are one who gets them?

Should I try to find a new Dr. that would help me get around the "cosmetic issue"? I don't see it as cosmetic this excess skin is making life  miserable, and wearing  support undies to bed! something sexierKiss would be nice! just saying

Thanks all

Congratulations to you!! That is horrible about the rash, have you tried a dermatologist? My mother had a problem with a rash like that and it turned out to be some kind of fungal infection. She has medication to use to clear it up and then a skin care regimen to prevent it.

Also, have you thought about seeing a new doctor who may be more helpful as far as declaring the extra skin a medical issue?
