Fungal Rash Under Armpit
I have had a fungal rash in my airmpit for the last 6 months. Started treatment in feb and is improving. When should I expect complete resolution?
Infections especially in area which are naturally MOIST are VERY difficult to get rid of....Remember KEEP DRY in between applications of whatever your using topically. Take antifungal medication (if that is prescribed) for a few weeks after rash is gone!
Hope this helps

Patchy red rashes on my neck, under my breasts and my armpits - has been like this for a number of days and are getting worse.
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 (clotrimazole). Dermatitis may be caused by exposure to chemicals/fragrances in deodorant/anti-perspirants so a hypo-allergenic subsitute may be needed.
