My Armpits Break Out All The Time What Is It
ARMPITS BROKEN OUT: Do your armpits itch? Is there a rash? Are they lumps or boils? If they just itch, it may be due to the soap you are using. Change to dove or cetaphil; change you antiperspirant/deodorant; wash your blouses ANS sweaters and shirts in all free & clear (don't know if you are female or male) if it persists, see a dermatologist.

Hello I have this serious breakout it started on my armpits and now its under my break it itches and bleeds sometimes what could it be?
Infection: Sounds like you have an infection. If you shave there you need to get new blades, clean it after each use, let it dry out (keep somewhere to dry out in the day, not in shower in a wet tray) and change the blade more often.
My husband has dozens of lumps on his armpits that are elongated almost like tabs of skin and they are painful. They seem to get bigger with time.
Acrochordons: These tags of skin are more prominent in some families and more numerous on obese people. They are removed quickly and easily without sutures or dressings. It is nearly painless, OK to get wet, heals in about a week. They are also common around the neck, under the breasts, and in the groin. They are common on the eyelids and just as easily removed. They never become malignant.
Determine the nerve: On the net, look up distribution of intercostobrachial nerve, medial cutaneous nerve of arm, and T2 distribution. See which correlates to the distribution of your sensation disturbance. Report your findings to your doctor. Since you are young and it only happens "from time to time" this may be benign and tests may be normal. However, if you can determine the nerve this can help investigation.See 1 more doctor answer
I have had for 3 months now soreness in the creases of my armpits. Mostly one at a time. Sometimes both at the same time. I have no lumps.?
Armpits itchy like crazy after applying Certain Dri for the first time. Before bed, 20m after shower. Can't sleep. Is it supposed to itch???
Wash it off: Most likely you are reacting to something in it. Wash it off and apply moisturizing lotion. Consider 1% hydrocortisone cream if itching continues.
Itchy underarms: Be careful with body sprays and other medicinals that are not designed for groin and underarms. Even perfumes, powders, and other things can make you sensitive. If you have sensitive and dry skin anyway, you may need to read the labels for any senstitivies that can cause itching in delicate places.
Is it bad to rub deodorant onto your skin 6 times under each armpit? Are there dangerous chemicals in deodorant?
Overkill: The material you lay down with one application is more than adequate to last the day in most situations. If you are involved in sweaty activity and must bathe again, re-application would be reasonable. If you are doing this 6X/day it is an obsessive behavior and you need to find a mental health professional and sort out the reason behind it. Your life could be much better.
I regularly get small but painful lumps under my armpits they come and go all the time sometimes being excursiatingly sore??
Possible: Hidradenitis suppurativa. Please see your physician or a dermatologist for treatment. Take care.
Before a year I had a lump in my armpit it hurted me a lot but with time it got away and till now I didn't have it back, what is it?
Painful armpit lump: While a painful lump in your armpit could be caused by many things, one of the more common reasons we see in the urgent care and primary care setting, especially if it is recurrent, is termed hidradenitis suppurativa. This basically is a skin disease that affects your sweat glands and can cause you to have recurrent abscesses. Ultimately however you need to go to your pcp for evaluation asap.
I have a small cut in my left armpit from last 5 months. All the time small amount of white liquid and blood comes out of it. Please suggest.
See PCP: Or see dermatologist. Need to rule out infection among other things. Don't let it spread.
I have a lump under my armpit n its been there for a long time and I don't know what it is I was jus wondering cause it don't hurt or bother?
Lump: Clinically if it is not getting bigger it is more likely benign but better to have it evaluated by a surgeon.
Every time I shave my armpits I get at least 1 if not more ingrown hairs in both of them is there a reson they keeping coming everytime I shave?
Technique?: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving.See 1 more doctor answer
