I've just noticed a weird red patch. The outline is red but the middle is skin coloured. It's not itchy or sore. Any guesses as to what it could be? blush Worried it could affect bf and my lo.

Also it's in the crease where boob 'flops' blush

Thrush by the sounds of it, I'd go get some anti fungal cream

It's not on my nipple and it's not itchy ?

Dermatitis or a sweat rash (could be thrush, I agree).

Ask the pharmacist.

Whatever it is, it is highly unlikely to affect your milk or your baby.

When I have thrush on my boobs it isn't itchy, and it's never on the nipples, it's in the underboob crease or underside of my boobs, so in my experience it definitely can be thrush! I have it right now in fact! It could also be a sweat rash but I would think that would go away quite quickly once the area was clean and dry
