Armpit rash

I have recently developed a rash in my left armpit. It is red around the hairs and uncomfortable as its very itchy.
I have felt a couple of small lumps but not sure if they are from scratching. Any help would be appreciated

Re: Armpit rash

Have you recently changed the antiperspirant/deodorant that you use? You could be sensetive to that.

I would stop using soap/shower gel to wash the area, and instead wash it with plain Aqueous Cream, a very mild clesner.

Dont put any deodorant on the armpit, that will probably increase the irritation.

Put some 1% Hydrocortisone on in three times a day, that should help in a few days.

Re: Armpit rash

Right on. Stop the deodorant and your armpit rash should clear
