What are these red itchy patches and little bumps under my armpits, it happens when I wear t-shirts.

Pityriasis Rosea?: Do you recall where the rash started? Pityriasis Rosea is characterized by a symmetrical rash that usually begins with a "herald patch." The herald patch is an oval, fawn-colored patch that precedes the generalized eruption. Google images for Pityriasis Rosea--see if that's what you look like. The cause is unknown, and requires no treatment. Should resolve in a few months. Not infectious

I've been itchy for over a week in armpit kept scratching now I have a bump under the skin. Not painful also have possible ibs use colpermin?

I've been itchy for over a week in armpit kept scratching now I have a bump under the skin. Not painful also have possible ibs use colpermin?

A few thoughts: Colpermin usually doesn't cause itching but because it's a natural substance, it's hard to say for sure because those compounds are not as regulated as prescription medications. You could try not taking it for a few daysto see if it helps your symptoms. Try not to scratch as this can cause irritation to your skin. Possibly the bump under the skin is a cyst that formed as a result of the scratching

I have a rash on one armpit, its little red bumps with heads and there is one bump that is very swollen even under the skin. It is painful and itchy?

This Is The Pits...: You may have the beginnings of an infection in that area. If it gets too advanced it could become a real problem that's hard to get rid of and at that point it would be called :hidradenitis suppuritiva" which means a recalcitrant infection of the armpit (s). Best to get it looked at and treated right away. It's not likely to go away on its own and that big lump is a sign of that.

Multiple causes: The rash could be due to folliculitis, or a dermatitis from your antiperspirant or another cause. Consult a dermatologist to evaluate and treat this issue. Use unscented soaps and sensitive skin antiperspirants only.

Swollen, itchy red bumps appeared randomly under both of my arms today in the armpit region. What could this be and how can I treat it? Thanks!

Bumps: Both contact dermatitis and folliculitis can cause a rash in the armpit. Sometimes shaving irritates the hair follicles, causing them to inflame, then become partially blocked. Consider using topical antibiotics, like benzoyl peroxide. If you think this is a contact allergy to a chemical like those found in deodorants, consider topical hydrocortisone cream

Viral?: This may be from a viral or drug reaction. If the bumps come and go within hours, try taking antihistamine. If they lasts over 24 hrs, try topical hydrocortisone. If the problem worsens or persists for for more 2 weeks. see your doctor.
