I have had a rash develop in my arm pits which slowly spread to cover both my armpits as well as down the sides and under each breast. This rash is very itchy and is thought to be a fungal infection (by my doctor). It consists of small itchy bumps, which can spread like wildfire and then connect to form larger masses. when they dry up, it leaves the skin black and looking scarred.
Please help! I have had this for about 40 days, and no medication has worked so far - anti fungal creams or even antifungal treatments which were taken orally.
I have this same problem too, but my mom hasnt takin me to the doctor yet. Its been making me mad cause it come and goes, and it hurts and burns alot. And it has made my armpit look almost bruised. And no meds my family has givin me have really worked. Somtimes it goes away for awhile, but then randomly it comes back. We have even tried using different deoderents for sinsitive skin thinking thaat was the problem but it didnt seem to help. I think Im going to see if my mom will finally take me to the doctor since its back again. And if she doesnt Im going to make sure someone does cause Im not going to put up for this that much longer. It hurts and itches tooo much, and turns my whole armpit red and almost a black looking color. "/
Hey ! I had this same problem and it stayed for 3 weeks and is barely now going away...My primary doctor prescribed an athletes foot cream, and really didnt give me an answer to what it was. So I didnt use the medication, instead my mom took a trip to Henry's market a health foods store and purchased "Itch Relief Lotion with Tea Tree, E and Chamomile" its by dermaE. Tea tree helps fight bacterial and fungal infections and the chamomile helps with calming the inflamation and irritation as well as the Vitamin E. I have been applying it 3 times a day or more and wash my armpits off with cold water and aloe vera soap. It has seemed to be helping a lot. I have a dermatologist appointment next week so hopefully I will have more answers ! goodluck to the both of you !
