It's probably just due to lack of air circulation in there. Even if there is no yeast, when sweaty skin is up against other skin all the time, it doesn't really breathe.
Do you wear a bra? If not, can you tuck some soft cotton (maybe flannel) under your breasts? There is no pain, right? No skin irritation at all?
I used to take care of a lot of elderly people, and often older ladies will have not really yeast under their breasts/abdominal folds, but it would be kind of tacky just from no air circulation to the skin.
Is your sense of smell more sensitive while pregnant? I can often smell things that DH cannot. Not saying it's your imagination, just that it might smell more strong to you than it does to someone else.
i'd try to keep some layer of fabric under your breasts so the skin isn't touching the skin below it and see if that helps...
