yellow coating on armpit hair

I hope I posted this in the right area.

Under both of my armpits the hairs have a yellowish coating on the hair follicle. The follicle also is easy to pull out. I have washed this area everday and it hasn't gotten rid of it.
I also tried shaving, but once the hair starting growing back I noticed the yellow once again.
After doing some research I think it is a type of fungus.
Does anyone know what i can buy without going to a doctor to remove this yellow stuff from my armpit hair.
Thanks for any help you can give me

Are you sure its not your deodorant? A loooong time ago I used to wear a deodorant that would turn yellow when mixed with my sweat. Lamisil is an over the counter product that treats fungus, but its best to get tested by a doctor. They scrape a little skin off of you, then test to see if its fungus or not.

At 1st I thought it might be the deodorant, but after I shaved it, I didn't use the deodorant anymore and it still came back, thats why i think it may be a fungus. I'll probably go out and get some lamisil.
thanks for you help
