Rash after breast reduction
It is hard to say what it is whithout at least a picture. Could be a reaction to the sutures, or the tape or glue that were used. Consult your surgeon, he/she may have a treatment suggestion.

Rash Under Breasts 3 months after a breast reduction
Glad that you have had such a wonderful result from your breast reduction. As regards the rash that you are concerned about, it is impossible to comment on it accurately without photos and any relevant history. Your best bet is to contact your plastic surgeon and explain this problem. He/she may be able to better provide you an answer by phone or may request that you come in for an examination.
