    Thank you, KaraLea!! Nipple nipple. Just a really cool word, isn't it?

    I am C+ (down from DD) and I find that the only way to keep mine up above the equator is with underwire bras. If they fit well, they're very comfy, I find. I have my own certain brand that I know will be good. I take the wires out after they break, too. But they're never as comfy for me after that - and they tend to pull up in back. I HATE having this bra-strap at the nape of my neck!

    Hoolahan - You (not you, but what you wrote) reminded me of the little old lady who was brought to the ER with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her knee. She said it was her doctor's fault - she'd called and asked him where her heart was and he told her behind her left breast!

    Dennie - the nippulator. I like it.

    Have used Zeasorb with some patients.

    Another sufferer here. What works for me:
    Wash affected skin with Nizoral shampoo 1% OTC(sntifungal dandruf shampoo). Rinse well.
    Pat dry or Use blow dryer on low or lie in bed and use TV Guide to fan area.
    Mild excoriation-apply thin layer A+D ointment ( SWEAR by this stuff for incontinent patients too) then Tolfinate foot powder (antifungal). Gently pat with tissue to remove excess--healed in 48 hrs.
    If severe rash Gyne lotamin creame( or RX mycolog)---fan dry then powder.
    Maintenance use A+D affected area after bath. PRN foot powder at first sign stinging.

    Only one day this summer with rash.

    Could see Zeasorb work well too.
    "This super absorbent powder actually is able to absorb 3 times the moisture of regular talcum powder."

    Zeasorb-AF Lotion/Powder

    YUP! my Mom had 44DD super-droopers and has not gotten a rash under them since she tried the antiperspirant under the bubbies thing.

    I do it too...my 38 D are still purty perky but I am a sweaty person and I hate it when you are mid shift on a hot day, bend uver to do something and get a whiff of boob sweat.

    Have you all considered breast reductions? I think old fat filled bubbies look awful...rashes, skin tags, sores,......yuck !

    One the muscle is gone, and the supporting tissue and they just get fatter and drooooooooooooooooooooooooooopier......lord, why not opt for some " body sculpting?"
