My daughter is 11 and has lil blisters under her armpit that have popped open and now look like cigarette burns can you tell me what it is?
See Your Doctor: Your 11 yr. old daughter has blisters in her armpit. Blistering rashes have numerous causes. Having them confined to her armpit is an unusual location and could be caused by local exposure to an irritant, infections, or even poison ivy through touching the area. Because rashes are difficult to diagnose without visual inspection, your daughter should see her doctor for correct diagnosis. ...Read more

My boyfriend has a rash growing underneath his left armpit and is spreading to his right one. There no lumps or anything just kind of red, and he says it burns
Hi. : Hi. I cannot diagnose the reason for the rash in your boyfriendâ€™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? If either of these might be the culprit, stop using the new product or try wearing clothes that are looser near the armpit. 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. Because the underarm is moist, warm and does not get much air, it is the perfect place for a fungus to grow. He may need to see his doctor to be evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My husband got a really bad rash under his armpits from using old spice deodarant, what should he do? He used the deodarant stick and also the body spray and his rash resembles burns and is very sore and painful.
It : It is possible that this is a contact dermatitis due to allergy from a substance such as fragrance or preservative in the deodorant. I would avoid that deodorant and consider using a mild topical Hydrocortisone cream in the area. If not improved in a few days, consider visiting a dermatologist for diagnosis and to discuss treatment options and possible skin allergy testing. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Ice for the pain: If the herpes infection is gone and this is just the residual pain and burning after shingles, then applying an ice pack tends to give some relief. Sarna lotion may also help, and topical Lidocaine can be soothing as well. There are also stronger prescription medications that can help too. If there is an active herpes infection, then that should be treated with anti-viral meds asap. ...Read more
