Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash under armpit


Avatar f tn I am a 36 year old man. I have a red itchy rash in my armpit. Not the whole armpit. In both armpits the rash is 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 this problem before.
Avatar f tn I developed an itchy rash under one armpit a couple weeks ago. I started putting a steroid cream on it and it made the itching stop only when I use it (it itches again when I stop) but the rash/red bumps seem to be spreading. Does anyone know what this could be? Has anyone else had this happen?
Avatar f tn My 12 Year old daughter has a reoccuring rash that she suffers from under her right armpit. This rash is severely painful and itchy. Her Physician prescrid Luxiq to her, As the medicine is expensive, I was wondering what the rash is and if there is any other way to treat it. When we treat it with the Luxiq, the rash does disappear. However it comes back every month or so. I attached a picture of the rash as of last night.

Avatar m tn Hi, around April of this year, I develop a severe burning, reddish rash under both armpits simultaneously. Because of the pain/burning, I made the stupid mistake of scratching the area constantly, which developed into leathery plaques that are itchy (the dermatologist referred to this as "lichen simplex chronicus" forward to December, and the rash comes and goes (some of the itchy plaques still remain)....does that sound like an HIV rash?
Avatar m tn Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but it can be sweat dermatitis,heat rash,eczema or fungal infections. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime.
Avatar n tn I switched the stuff I was using, it got better, its back again I have a red perfect circle under my armpits and its itchy, I did try hydro-creme for the itch, it help a bit but the rash is still there. What can I do do get rid of the rash. I need to shave but I am afraid to please help.
Avatar n tn I have been in Brazil for the past 2 years and I developed an armpit rash, actually, it was a rash that started out around the buttocks, stomach, thighs and looks just like a pimple, red, itchs like crazy and with a yellow watery center. 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 is it?
Avatar n tn My six year old has kept a rash in her armpit the majority of the time that we have been here. The rash is red and itchy and comes and goes. It is only under one arm. I thought it was contact dermatitis, but she also has developed hard clear bumps about the size of the ball of a pen on the medial surface of her upper harm. about 1mm? There are about 12, but they are increasing in number and size gradually. No fever or any other signs. And nothing on the other arm.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 16 year old female and I just started to develop a strange rash under my left and right armpit. It is very itchy and it is hard to resist from itching it. There are red blotches which seem to be dry skin. A few pimple-looking bumps show up under my armpits as well, and I really want to know what this is. I have tried 1% Hydrocortisone Cream and Johnston's Baby Moisturizing Cream and none of these have had a full on great effect. Can anyone help?
Avatar n tn I also have a rash that starts in my armpit and speads downwards. It started in my left arm and in now under my right arm. It is 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 is it and what should I do about it?
Avatar n tn hi i have a rash under my armpit, it started small but has grown bigger. Straight after washing it is a really intense pink looking colour, then it fades throughout the day, kindof looking like a white colour.. its not sore or itchy.
Avatar f tn My husband has had a rash under his arm for about 10 days, that is pinky red in colour, risen, itchy, seems to ooze a slimy substance and gives off a foul smell... we have tried a fungal cream called Daktozin, Bactroban and he tried putting the nappy rash cream - Sudocream on and it started to burn so he washed it off, but nothing has worked so I was wondering if you would be able to help me with what this could be?
Avatar m tn Hello. I have recently started developing thick scabs under my left armpit. 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 is popping up under the other armpit which is starting to spread!
Avatar n tn I have a rash under my armpit 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 under only one armpit, it started happeneing when i became pregnant. are there 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 under my armpit and noticed there were itchy red bumps day by day they've spread and increased in numbers. There is 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 is terribly itchy. I have no other abnormal symptoms and am wondering What this 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 rash disappears 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 rash due to hot and humid weather is heat rash. Eczema is a type of contact dermatitis- 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 rash. Today it appears as a ring worm rash with blisters and burned skin with a dark reddish color or bright reddish color.. It is extremely painful at this 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 this one issue. I am on my 3rd doctor with this 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 this itchy rash under 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 history of allergies? Is the rash 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 antihistamines will be indicated. A complete visual examination may be necessary. A mild and bland cleanser such as Cetaphil may be used to wash the area.
Avatar f tn 5 cm (on the perimeter of the armpit only on the right side)They have always been reddish, and itchy. I also have a patch of the rash on my chin, under my lower lip. The facial rash isn't itchy, but it has existed for the same duration and I have NEVER had acne. I've been using over-the-counter cortizone lotion with limited success. It decreases the inflammation but doesn't seem to stop the growth (in terms of What could this be!?!?! I haven't recently changed ANYTHING!! I.e.
