Hi. : Hi. I cannot diagnose the reason for the rash in your boyfriend’s underarm. What are possible reasons? Has he started using a new soap or deodorant that he might be reacting to? Is he wearing clothes that fit tight at the underarm and are causing friction?

Wearing clothes that are made of natural fabric like cotton may also be beneficial as it will allow for better ventilation. Good hygiene is also important. Ensure that the arm is dried off well after washing. If his rash does not improve with these suggestions, he could have a fungal infection.
