Avatar f tn I am a 36 year old man. I have a red itchy r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit. Not the whole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit. In both armpits the rash an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> localized in the front where the chest meets the armpit hair. I do not shave or wax. The rash appeared 6 days ago. I appeared after I went tanning. I tanned in a stand up booth. Holding my arms up the whole time. I tan once a week in the same booth and have never had than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> problem before.

Does anyone know what than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> could be? Has anyone else had than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> happen?

I was given a cream called Bi-Nerizona and it makes it go away within 3-4 days. It has now returned under my left armpit and if I stop using the cream, it will come right back, however, not itchy as before. What the heck an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> it?

Avatar n tn I also have a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh that starts in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit and speads downwards. It started in my left arm and in now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right arm. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> no where else on my body. The bumps look like chicken pox or little zits. Some of them are really big and itch and some are little and don't itch. I never had a cold or anything when they first arrived. What an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> it and what should I do about it?
Avatar n tn hi i have a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit, it started small but has grown bigger.

Avatar m tn Hello. I have recently started developing thick scabs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit. They started out as itchy, with no physical signs of scabbing or anything. Then, almost overnight, a layer of what feel like scabs popped up. and they are very painful to the touch. It has been about two weeks now, and the "scabs" have spread over most of my armpit,gotten thicker, and oddly enough, a smaller scab an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> popping up under the other armpit which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> starting to spread!
Avatar n tn I have a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit but when I looked at it today it's spreading all around my body. Itchy little ant bites I thought. I don't think it's a rash anymore. Can you tell me what it might be?
Avatar m tn i have been developing these red spots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> only one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit, it started happeneing when i became pregnant. are an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>therean> any treatments that i can try? i have tried not putting underarm deoderant on and that didn;t work.
Avatar f tn Starting 6 days ago I started getting an itch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rmpit and noticed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>therean> were itchy red bumps day by day they've spread and increased in numbers. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>therean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> alot of them now on my chest and on and under my breasts. also still on the armpits and under my adomen. Some have formed on the insides of my thighs and the rashes an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> terribly itchy. I have no other abnormal symptoms and am wondering What than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> could be? and How can it be treated?

Avatar n tn I also have the same redness under my sagging breasts and how have to wear a bra so my breasts don't touch my abdomen. Most of the time the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>appears but sometimes it becomes very itchy. It seems that whenever I get too warm these areas get very itchy. Let's say if I lie down on my side and bend my arm to hold my head, the inside of the elbow becomes damp and the rash and itchiness appear.
Avatar n tn Both these conditions can cause painful,itchy bumps. Skin r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh due to hot and humid weather an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> heat r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh. Eczema an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a type of contact dermatitan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>- allergic re-action due to contact with an irritant. Keep the cool,clean and dry. You could corticosteroid ointment on the affected area.
Avatar n tn It started out as just a burn when I put on my deordorant and then migrated into a red, itchy r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh. Today it appears as a ring worm r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh with blan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ters and burned skin with a dark reddan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>h color or bright reddan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>h color.. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> extremely painful at than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> point. It does not appear to be contagious, and has not spread beyong the one armpit. I am a healthy 42 year old female aside from than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> one an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>sue. I am on my 3rd doctor with than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> and he does not appear to be able to identify it either.
Avatar n tn Once i ran out of replacements i was just using the same one for about a week. I started to get than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> itchy r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> both my armpits. I bought a new razor and it still didn't go away, i also bought a new deodorant but still no improvement. The skin on my armpits was very dry, so i started to use a lotion to get it to go away still nothing. Whenever i would itch the rash the skin would peel because it was so dry. I also started to use Cortizone to stop the itching..
Avatar m tn Do you have any personal or family han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tory of allergies? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh itchy? You may apply a cool compress over the area just to alleviate the pain or itchiness that may be present. You may take pain relievers for the meantime. ask your primary physician if taking antihan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tamines will be indicated. a complete van style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ual examination may be necessary. a mild and bland cleanser such as Cetaphil may be used to wash the area.
