Itchy Arm pits: you don't have to live with this condition . Make an appointment to see a skin specialist ( Dermatologist } . A scraping or a skin biopsy maybe in order . .Change you deodorant . Use backing soda or even unscented baby powder & see what happens . you maybe allergic to it .Worth a try Good luck
