My partner has suddenly started to lose his underarm hair with no other symptoms. Still using the same soap, deodorant etc. What could be causing this?

Many possibilities: No loss of hair elsewhere (scalp, groin) as well? Localization to the underarms would be unusual. Generalized hair thinning can be due to medications or internal illnesses, and probably to stress, and sometimes it happens for no discernible reason. Is this a problem for him? If he's worried, let a doctor run some tests to rule out underlying medical problems. ...Read more

I have two hard bumps under my skin under my armpits. What could they be? I changed soaps recently and use the same deodorant, wore a jacket.

Plugged glands?: Most likely these represent apocrine or sweat glands that have become plugged from you deodorant. If you use an antiperspirant the 'aluminum chlorohydrate' pinches off the gland so that they don't secrete fluid. It backs up and viola you have a bump. Change to deodorant alone. Other concerns would be abscess if you have pain/heat/redness at site or lymph node. If grow/become tender, see a doc. ...Read more
