Rash under armpit

Common Questions and Answers about Rash under armpit


Avatar f tn I have a rash on both my arms (the part that touches the armpit) that has been evolving for several weeks. Early on, it was large bumps (1-1.5cm x .5cm) on the armpit itself, now it is small bumps on the skin that surrounds the armpit. On the right arm it's about 3.5cm (from the start of armpit up the arm) and about 1.5 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.
Avatar f tn I switched from old spice deodorant to an all natural deodorant, native, after I was getting a small rash and itching. Now I have a bigger rash under my left armpit but my right armpit is fine. Can this be from deodorant? Laundry detergent? I don't sweat all that much.
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 m tn Hey doc i noticed a months ago that i am developed a rash under my armpits. At first i disregarded it and thought it would eventually go away however it didnt and now im concerned as to what it might be and how to address the problem. It started off as a small darkish rash and now it has grown in size and is significantly darker. Im believing that it was caused by deodarant The Mitchum Brand to be exact only after i started using this did it start to happen.
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 m tn I too have experienced a rash under my left armpit a couple of months ago. My doctor told me it that it was eczema and prescribed me a cordisone cream, which helped instantly. The thing is that I never really had outbreaks of eczema (to my knowledge) prior to this year. Is it possible for someone to randomly develop a case of eczema later on in life? Much appreciated!
Avatar n tn The lump under my armpit is 3" long by 1" wide. It does not hurt when I press and freely move my hand around the lump and it is not hard. I had a CT scan done this past Thursday and will meet with my doctor to see the results on Monday. My doctor will also have me do an MRI scan before he does a biopsy. I noticed yesterday another lump is beginning to form on my other armpit.
Avatar f tn The rash on the wrist is possibly 'pityriasis rosea' and should be gone soon. The folliculitis(?lymphadenopathy) relating to the axilla is again being superficial has been overcome by host resistence.
Avatar m tn I have a rash under both of my armpits. Unlike most people on here who have had a rash there, my rash does not itch at all. However, it does sting/burn when i stretch my arms out. It's started to scab and flake which i take as a sign of healing. Does anyone have any idea what's causing my problem? If so, how do i treat it?
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a rash under my right armpit. I have never had a rash.. except for razor bumps, in my arm pit area. It is red, inflammed a bit, and my skin keeps peeling. I need to alleviate and take care of this problem.. but i'm not sure how. It seems that it came about when I started using Toms of Maine Citrus 24 hour natural deorderant. Could this be the culprit? I also have atopic dermatitis that effects my abdominal area and on top of my upper thighs. I take an antihistimine..
Avatar f tn I've recently developed itchiness under both my arms...I've had this for about a month. I did switch deoderant when it started so i switched back to the stuff i always used but it hasnt improved. At first it just itched like crazy....now it itches and burns. The area is all red and blotchy. the rash is only under my arms and hasnt spread anywhere else....

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"....fast forward to December, and the rash comes and goes (some of the itchy plaques still remain)....does that sound like an HIV rash?
Avatar n tn I have skin colored bumps under my left armpit only in an outline of the backside of the armpit to directly underneath. It has not spread and i was on Follical medicene but that did nothing to clear up the rash. The bumps if squeezed are almost pimple like at times and at other times not? I know i should see a Dermo but i don't have insurance right now so i'm looking for any possible suggestions on what this could be thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I have devloped something under my armpit akin to a rash. I'm honestly not sure if it is a rash since I've not had or seen one like this. It's pink in the middle surrounded by a red ring. It's moist in the middle and it produces an awful smell. There's also slight irritation when i move my arm and it makes contact with other skin.
Avatar n tn Yesterday, I noticed a rash (raised concentrated area of red blotches forming a kind of circle about an inch across) under my right arm near my armpit with some more scattered blotches going down around the side of my armpit. I also noticed a few red blotches near my left armpit. I bought cortisone cream and applied it twice yesterday, evening and night. This morning, the redness has spread and now there is a large red blotchy "ring" around both armpit about a few inches wide.
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 f tn I woke up yesterday and noticed pain under my right armpit. I felt my armpit and found hard bumps or lumps and they are pea-sized and painful to the touch. There is about 10 under the right armpit. The skin is slightly red and I also have them under my left armpit, but only about 5 of them. They are painful to the touch as well and slightly itchy. The pain feels prickly and tender and it hurts more when I move my arm.

Avatar f tn I have been experiencing over the last 9 months a circle rash/redness under both of my armpits, sometimes just one armpit flares up at a time, does not ich or is dry just pure red and sore. Twice i have had spots in that area aswell but they went within a day but the redness stayed. Ive tried anibiotics, creams, changing deodrant, not shaving, washing in anti bacterial wash but nothing is working. Ive been to the doctors who have just given me more cream which has not worked.
441182 tn?1204774014 For the first time in my 44 years of life, i have developed under my left armpit some bumps that are like raised moles and colored blackish purple. They don't itch and I actually almost got rid of them when I washed my armpit with head and shoulders shampoo. After not paying attention to them for about 3 weeks while I recovered from the flu, they were back and had spread even more under my armpit! Could it be fungus, or cancer or what?
Avatar m tn Anyone, please?
