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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

I am experiencing  rash on back, under breast and under armpit along bra line, worst under the hook of my bra. they are like big VERY ITCHY red bumps?

Contact allergy: You may be allergic to something in your bra and the metal in the bra hook. You may try a different make of bra and one with a plastic hook. Wash the bra thoroughly before use. See that your bra is not too tight. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

Antibiotic allergy can cause an itchy rash, sometimes after the antibiotic is already finished. People who have a history of eczema can have itchy rashes appear off and on. Sometimes there are skin infections like folliculitis, shingles, pimples, impetigo, etc... A doctor can evaluate to see what it all might be. ...Read more
