Depends on type: Candida/yeast is creamy white, tends to occur in skin folds, groin, under breasts. Tinea versicolor doesn't tan, has irregular borders, slightly scaly edges. Tinea corporis/ringworm starts as red spot that grows outward in ring shape; edge is raised, scaly; center appears normal. Vitiligo (not a fungus) is patches of hypopigmentation. Skin scraping & test for fungus by doc can be a start. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It may be simple: hyperpigmentation, a relatively benign concentration of the skin pigment melanin...although this would not occur preferentially in the armpits. Acanthosis nigracans is hyperpigmentation, often in body folds such as armpit/axilla, typically occurring in those <40 yrs, possibly inherited and associated with glandular conditions including obesity, diabetes, thyroid disease.

I have dry, brown, itchy spots under my armpits and theyre spreading now. So I have cancer? Is it an infection? What do I do? I have no insurance=(

I have pink spots in one armpit that are non itchy but burn and are sensitive to touch. Could this be from an under armor shirt irritating this area?
Possible yeast: Irritation from a shirt would likely affect both armpits, as well as other areas, and would typically itch. This is more likely to be a yeast or fungus (athlete's foot-type) condition, which is common in warm, damp areas such as armpits. Try an otc antifungal cream twice a day. If there is no response, you'll need to see a dermatologist for a direct examination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have these dark spots on my skin by my armpits, one on my thigh, one under my chin and sometimes they get itchy like they flare up and get irritated?
I have a few new stretch marks under my arms near my armpit, they're really itchy now I have tiny spots under my arm and my elbow, had for 4 days.
Stretch marks: These can be due to several things including weight gain most commonly. I'm not really sure that they're related to the spots, though. If you have gained weight there are skin changes that can raise the question of diabetes perhaps you can upload a picture? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
