breaking out in armpits?

well i wasnt sure if this post should go in ACNE or not but i think its more of a skin problem..anyway

im 15 and for at least the past 3 years i have had problems with my armpits....whenever i shave i breakout majorly in my armpits...its starts out as red blemishes but after a few days a lot of those blemishes become white-headed zits!! i try to pop them (not a great idea i kno) and it hurts like a mother!!! they cover my armpits and areas where i dont even shave...still in the armpit region tho....i dont break out as soon as i shave but within a day or 2 im totally broken out...i have been to the doctor numerous times but they didnt help...all they said was 2 shave upwards..so i do..and it doesnt get rid of the hair as well so i have 2 do it more often and so i break out...ive try to only shave my pits about once a week because if i shave with pimples its bad...the heads like break off...u can imagine...ive used different razors, shaving creams, hair removal products but i still break out!!
im asuming my armpit skin is extremly sensitive and that is the problem...any suggestions?
ive looked into laser hair removal but its quite expencive
help would be great!! thx

Re: breaking out in armpits?

Hi, i get those too sometimes, it's normal. Don't worry too much about it, i put polysporn on it(if thats what its called). Im 15 too and i find that it can be really embarassing.. um.. they do get better, so, just make sure you shave with shaving cream and put moisturizing cream on afterwards.

I guess your skin is probably sensative but, theres not really much you can do about it. Sorry
