Question Slightly yellow discoloration on armpits... normal?

I have fair white skin, but I noticed a slight yellow discoloration on my armpits. There is no rash or itching. Is this normal? Could it be caused by the use of deoderants/antiperspirants? Thanks for any help.

p.s. It's barely noticable at all, just wondering if it could be something to worry about.

Are you diabetic? Or do you have any insulin problems? This is a side effect of diabetes and also of Poly-Cystic-Ovary Syndrome... I'd check with your doc if you have any issues with your cycle or any symptoms of either of these...
