yellow coating on armpit hair?

So the past few days I've been noticing a yellowish coating at the base of my armpit hair. It affects about an eighth of the hairs, and only on one armpit. The hairs it is on are also more brittle, and can be pulled out quite easilly. Does anyone know what is causing this, and how I can get rid of it? A fungus perhaps? I can't find any information on the internet ANYWHERE about this, but also can't imagine I'm the only person with this issue...
Thanks in advance!

Have you been using a new soap or deoderant that maybe you are allergic to?

Hmm I'm not sure but it could be a fungus. Get it checked out with the doctor.

Nope, no new soap or deodorant, I don't think it's an allergic reaction to anything...
I am leaning much more towards the fungus idea, but can't go to the doctor because I have no health insurance.

Re: yellow coating on armpit hair?

It sounds like it could be a fungus. You could try an OTC fungus cream. You'll find them in the foot care section. But if that doesn't work, you will probably have to go to the doctor. Good luck.
