I have itchy red spots all over my body, mainly on my chest (including breasts), is there a rash caused by breastfeeding?

I've bf three kids and never had a rash. I agree with Sara. Maybe a visit to the doctors.

Not that I'm aware of. My skin has been very dry since I got pregnant. It could be dry patches. I use Medela's Lanolin cream on my breasts (it's less sticky). I let it dry then lotion the rest of myself with regular body lotion. If the rash doesn't go away and you're sure it's not dry skin you could always ask your doctor.
