1 year post op breast reduction. Why am I getting chafed in between my boobs? (Photo)

Why am I getting chafed in between my boobs now that they are smaller, when I never had this issue with my big boobs

Chaffed under the breast?

Based on the photos this does not look like chaffing from the surgery.  This could possibly represent some other issue such as eczema or other dermatologic issue.  I recommend a consultation with a dermatologist in your area.  Hope this helps.

Chafing skin

It is unlikely related to your previous breast reduction. You are probably best off seeing a dermatologist. Best of luck.

Chaffed skin causes?

Thank you for your question and photo.  There can be many reasons for chaffed skin.  I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist.   This may not be related to any prior surgery.  Best of luck.
