Exclamation armpit sore rash

A few months ago, i noticed i had some pinky dry skin patches under my left armpit (in the corner creases)... and now it's red and sore, and I have a few red spots dotted around my armpit. I changed my deoderant to Dove sensitive... but I havn't used it for a while or shaved that armpit for a while either. I've been putting Aloe Vera on it, it takes away the redness for a bit. I put a bit of Tea Tree Oil on it aswell...

I was wondering if anyone knew what it is, and something I can use on it...

Thanks

Re: armpit sore rash

As strange as this sounds, it could be a yeast infection ! I had one in the same area a few years ago and thought the doc was crazy when she told me that's what it was. Over the counter meds worked great and within a week it was gone.

Re: armpit sore rash

Yup... that's what I was going to suggest. They can occur anyplace that is warm and damp, especially in skin creases.

Re: armpit sore rash

Thanks for some info... do you know what the stuff you used is called?
And if it so happened not to be a yeast infection, it wouldn't damage my armpit (or anything else) would it?

Re: armpit sore rash

I just used the generic medicine from Walmart. It shouldn't hurt anything. They are very mild creams. Good luck, I hope it gets better soon!

Re: armpit sore rash

Look for an "antifungal" cream. Usually they are in the section near the foot care products. You want to try something that has the "azole" ending on it.
