    When your female doctor says we get those from chafing.

    Well interesting times I dont underdress when I go to my doctors. I have worn androgynous tops, but she doesnt see what I had on when Im in the examining room.

    I?ve had a rash/sore that she had treated before when it was bothering me. The rash follows where my bra underwires sit under my boob. I fully fill a 36 C cup bra. I'm thin. She examines the area and treats the sores. As I?m getting dressed she says, we get those from chafing.

    And...?

    If you want to prevent the rash/sores, then come out and tell your physician how you got them. She may be able to help you prevent them in the future.

    Although, at a guess, I'm gonna say your bra doesn't fit properly. Sounds like the band is too tight. You might want to try a 38.

    I had a similar situation where my bra was chaffing my shoulders. I went with a size larger and the chaffing ended.

    You are wearing the wrong size would be my guess.I have only had chaffing from lacy straps or bands.
    Pretty is nice but too uncomfortable.

    Funny thing is that my wife complains about chafing at the same place. Not sure if I should tell her the thought here is that she needs a new bra size. She does know I am a member here though.

    It isn't a bra size problem. It is a rash from a past experience where I received a bad rope burn. It is only on that side and my bras are not tight. I think it is sweat collecting between the bra and chest skin.

    It appears that you are not the first crossdresser that your doctor has seen. And your doctor is perceptive and helpful. You are indeed fortunate.

    I am sure your doctor knows exactly how the rash occurred.

    She is however professional and waiting for you to tell her.

    Her comment about chaffing is probably the biggest hint you will get.

    Davina, My wife and her whole family give advice but do not take advice so I will most likely pass on that.
    I agree with Shelly, your Dr knows for sure or she would not have made that comment.

    Always remember your doctor has seen it all before. Sometimes it"s simply us that can't see it like it is.

    It will help her to treat you you if she doesn't have to pretend to be stupid. What have you got to lose? She's not going to tell anyone. She probably couldn't even if she wanted to.

    In the US, the doctor can't out you because of the HIPPA privacy laws.

    Sometimes, if I think that I've spilled too much, I will remind the doctor (or nurse) that everything that I said about crossdressing "is medically protected information and can't be released (even to my family without my permission.

    Steffi, You make me smile with this, I agree you are correct about the HIPPA laws but it does not prevent the Doctor or Nurse from talking about you over a cup of coffee or a meal.

    You may be missing something here... if you fill a C cup, you have breasts. Your doctor may simply be saying that breasts can chafe. It may not be a reference to your bra at all.

    Actually, it is against the law to talk about my medical condition to anyone besides me, even over a cup of coffee. That doesn't mean that everyone obeys the law. I've even been in hospitals where there are warnings not to talk about patients in the public elevators. Some doctors even make you stand back from the receptionist's counter so you can't hear what the patient at the counter is saying.

    Susan Smith hit the nail on the head. Doc has no idea that I'm a CD. I've had boobs since I was a kid. Perhaps part of my questioning what I was. The rash has no link to my wearing a bra. I had not worn one for over a month while recovering from another medical problem. I fail the pencil test. If I put a pencil at the base of my boobs it won't fall.

    I do have a doctor friend who said he could make me a D cup. We were joking about young women who get enhancements. We both think that most of them look like they have grapefruits for boobs. I'm not into big boobs on me or women. Clothes look better with B or C cup boobs.

    As for HIPA. It sounds good but I can tell you it isn't followed that much between staff.

    Oh, heavens! Finding out that you need to change bra size due to 'chafing' might require a whole new shopping expedition to buy all new bras!

    Much like restraining orders don't stop people who break laws from breaking restraining orders, HIPPA laws don't stop medical people from discussing their cases with other medical professionals; they usually just don't mention the person's name. But it's often quite easy to figure out which patient, that they're talking about. This is human nature, as well as professional behavior which is common in the interest of solving medical problems, too. There's a lot going on behind the walls between the patients and the staff that pretty much no one other than the staff, knows about.
    Actually, it is against the law to talk about my medical condition to anyone besides me, even over a cup of coffee. That doesn't mean that everyone obeys the law.
    The problem is proving that they're talking about YOU. (see below)
    I've even been in hospitals where there are warnings not to talk about patients in the public elevators. Some doctors even make you stand back from the receptionist's counter so you can't hear what the patient at the counter is saying.
    Doctors are the worst offenders. They aren't hospital employees, and will tell you right away that the hospital's rules don't apply to them for that reason, as well as what I mentioned above, about how they will discuss patient's medical problems right out in public and feel that as long as they don't mention the patient's name, that they're just fine doing that. The problem that we have, is that unless you can catch them doing it, have a witness who is absolutely sure of what they're hearing, and can positively prove that they couldn't be talking about another patient (which you'd have to have all of their patient's records to prove that), there's nothing you can sue them for. And they know that.
    We've tried to get doctors to stop talking about patients when others are within hearing range of them, but some still don't give a hoot and keep doing it. It's especially difficult when it's a doctor who brings a lot of business to the hospital, because the brass doesn't want that doctor to take his patients, and his business, to another hospital.
    Some causes of crossdressing you've probably never even considered: My TG biography at:http://www.crossdressers.com/forums/...=1#post1490560
    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    After your last posts I'm not sure whether you're bragging or complaining, Liz?

    Have u considered reduction surgery?
    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!
