See your doctor: If you've recently changed your underarm deodorant, detergent washing clothes, or have sensitivity to this in your underarms, or upper arms, you need to have your doctor see it, and diagnose it properly, and treat it. It may be something very simple to do. Plus, you want it documented in your chart, or have photos taken. Good thing it doesn't hurt.

Pimple like : Rash - sounds benign . Just observe for now. Do take a picture for documentation . In meantime , cover it with a bandaid to avoid getting irritated by your clothing.
