My husband got a really bad rash under his armpits from using old spice deodarant, what should he do? He used the deodarant stick and also the body spray and his rash resembles burns and is very sore and painful.
It : It is possible that this is a contact dermatitis due to allergy from a substance such as fragrance or preservative in the deodorant. I would avoid that deodorant and consider using a mild topical Hydrocortisone cream in the area. If not improved in a few days, consider visiting a dermatologist for diagnosis and to discuss treatment options and possible skin allergy testing.

Itchy rashes under armpit, what are possible causes and OTC treatments? I shower daily, don't shave.
Dermatitis vs fungal: An 'itchy' rash in the axilla (arm pit) may be a 'contact dermatitis' or a yeast/fungal infection. An otc treatment for dermatitis is Cortaid (hydrocortisone 1%) and the treatment for fungal infection is otc 'anti-fungal' e.g. Lotrimin. Dermatitis may be caused by exposure to chemicals/fragrances in deodorant/anti-perspirants so a hypo-allergenic subsitute may be needed. Get seen if no better. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My boyfriend would sometimes get rashes under his armpit neck and back after unprotected sex. is it me or is it like sweat or an allergic reaction?
Underarm odor: This usually means that your skin has a bacteria present that is not being killed with normal cleansing. You could try washing each day for 3-4 days with a soap called hibiclens which is over the counter. Don't overdo it or you will dry out your skin or irritate it. If that does not work ask your doctor for a prescription for Clindamycin topical solution and apply it twice a day for a week. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
