Hey everyone, I am 17 and in the past 2 days i have developed very sore raw places in my armpit, they hurt so bad. they arent big - bigger than a pin head but smaller than dime.. and i was just wondering if anyone can help me figure out what it might be... thanks
It started out with one spot, and now its 5! and they are getting bigger, they burn so bad. they arent really sore, they just burn, and they have came up in the 4 days
i have been exercising alot lately, running, working out, and sweating alot, im thinking that might be it? not sure, but im calling the doc tommorw. someone told me it might be a yeast infection ...never heard of that but who knows, write back though
Getting a doc's appt. may not be a bad idea. You never mention if you switched deodorants lately? Jogging may be a factor to is in regards with your arm moving back n forth and the friction is wearing off the skin for a rash.
Could be a fungal infection. Or it could be razor burn, Try not shaving that arm til it goes away..if it is razor burn, you'll just irritate it more by shaving over it, and you'll get more sore spots. Sweating/deoderant will make it burn too because it gets in the spots you irritated while shaving...moisturize, exfoliate, and dont shave til its gone. But go to the docs just to be safe. But Im willing to be its razor burn that you're just continually irritating now.
