Do you think it’s going to take more than a month to heal??  How bad is it – maybe post a pic?  I would put baby powder on it – doesn’t that help chafing generally?

@kimm99:  The fact that the marks are still there a week later concerns me. I’d probably go see the GP or a dermatologist or at the very least go to a TakeCare Clinic or similar.

@kimm99:  For some reason if I go tanning it makes my scars less noticeable. If you just go for a few minutes here and there you shouldn’t get too dark or weird looking from it.

Also try some type of antichaff agent… like gold bond? Maybe it will help to soothe it away.

Cera Ve it will be near the Aquaphor and it is a great mousterizer all around. It is recommended for everything from dry skin to severe skin conditions so I am sure this will help you. I totally understand your qualms as I bruise easy too this stuff works. It is like 15 for a jar but it will last you forever and would be a great idea to use on your face as a daily mousterizer too. Hope it Helps!

@kimm99:  If you happen to have any type of corticosteroid cream on hand it should take care of it as well as moisturizing. I get weird rashes and allergies under my armpits and on my side boobs from chafing and with dexamethasone it goes away in about four ir five days! I’m olive skinned toned too 🙂 and hate that healing from something takes a month because once the scab is off you have this dark brown spot there.

How strange.  Did you notice whether it had metal clasps?  I have to be really careful to grab ones with plastic, and sometimes the cheapo bras have metal pieces that give me a reaction to the nickel.

@kimm99:  Ugh.  Sorry to hear that.  I have a mark from a bra similiar to yours.  Our skin tones are the same as well.  I used Mederma and a spot lightener from Origins on mine for a good six months.  Exfoliated it daily.  Its 9 months post wedding and its still there. 🙁  Tell your make-up artist and they can cover it up.
