Topical antibiotics can cause a rash after breast augmentation.

Topical antibiotics don't really have a role in uncomplicated breast surgery. The rash pictured in the photograph has many potential causes but is probably due to the use of topical antibiotics. You need to check in with your plastic surgeon.

Rash after a breast lift

Stop using topical agents as you could have a contact dermatitis.   Keep it clean and dry.   See your surgeon if it worsens or persists for a more formal evaluation.

Rash under breast following a reduction

The possible causes of your rash and redness include a contact dermatitis, infection or just masceration of the tissue due to wetness.  To be able to differentiate the problem you need to be evaluated by your physician.  If it is getting worse then get seen as soon as possible.

Since there are a number of suspects now, perhaps stopping the medications would be bests, and using a non-stick gauze alone for several days. 

Best would be to discuss this with your surgeon who knows you and has followed your recovery. All the best.
