I have a severe itch in my right armpit along with rash in same area. Have had this for about 2-3 weeks. Thought it may be a heat rash?

I have a rash that started as a heat rash in august and won't go away. Its around my grond area and if I use antifungul or hydrocortizone it returns?

This rash could be a few different things.
- impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria - either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics.
- contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids.
