Fungal infection: You likely have either 'athlete's foot' (tinea pedis), 'jock itch' (tinea cruris) or both. Basically, those areas can serve as reservoirs for the fungus and you need to treat all three areas at the same time until after appears resolved. If not improving after 10-14 days, need checked by your dr to be sure is not anything else. ...Read more
Could it be cancer? Breasts have itched for 6 months, had a rash on left 3 weeks ago, raw/red nipples on both 12/25, now both armpits and breast hurt.
What you described is not typical for a breast cancer, however, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be mammogram. It would be prudent to see your doctor. See this site for information in this topic.

Fungal infection right armpit, Rx ketoconazole 2x day, small scar from mole removal 2 months ago has turned red and raw rest of skin ok, what to do?
Got a very painful, bump/cyst-like thing in my armpit. Can see a bit of redness, less than size of dime. What could it be & how do I treat? Hurts!
Cause for such lump in armpit is a plugges SEBACEOUS CYST. This may require opening and drainage by a surgeon (although most family physicians perfrom such surgery) In the meantime HOT WET PACKS (or lying back in a hot tub) may encourage opening and draining "on its own".
Hope this helps!

1wk after 10 blood draws w venflon in antecubital space after extreme tourniquet, veins right under armpit hurt a lot not constantly no redness. Why?
Veinous inflammation: The antecubital vein which was probably the target of the blood draw runs up towards the armpit where it joins other veins. You may have had a small blood clot where the needle was placed that then traveled up to your armpit. It will dissolve on its own. Or the pressure on the vein from the repeated tourniquet may have stretched and inflamed it. Ouch. Very sorry about your ordeal. ...Read more
