rash on me

i didn't see anything in the memories that seemed to be what i'm experiencing.   is it normal to have a rash break out on your boobs when nursing?   when it first happened i thought it was stretch marks, then i thought it was my baby scratching,  but im keeping her nails short & they don't look like scratches, honestly they look like how i break out in an allergic reaction to nickel, but i don't have anything nickel around my boobs!!  it tends to be very itchy,  not painful but it is itchy & it isnt very appealing either, it also only appears on one of them.  i've been putting cocoa butter on it to help with the itchiness but it isn't helping the breaking out.

Are you leaking or sweating a lot? I sweated like a pig when I was breastfeeding, and leaked like mad at night so had to wash more frequently or I'd come out in a bit of a rash, as I also wore sleep nursing bras to bed to try and contain my giganticness.
i leak on occasion but not sweating really. i usually nurse her right away when i do start to leak. it's not around the nipple, its higher up, where my stretch marks are
Oh that brings back memories. I can't remember for sure so I don't want to say anything that might scare you. You might want to go to the Doctor.
