My Mom Had A Rash Under Her Arms That Looked Like Spider Bites What Is It
RASH IN ARMPITS: Without seeing the rash, it's difficult to make an accurate diagnosis. This sounds like a rash due to either a new sweater or blouse, or an underarm deodorant or a new soap, or new laundry detergent. Warm water compresses, a mild cleanser like cetaphil, and an over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream, twice daily might giver some relief. If no better, have her examined by a dermatologist. ...Read more

Lose the pacifier!: You can try using a moisturizer, such as eucerin.

Getting rid of the pacifier is the only way to really cure the rash. ...Read more

Cutaneous abscess: This sounds like indeed it could be a small localized infection - whether it started as a spider bite or something else. Definitely I would show it to a doctor - since you want to get it treated and minimize any chance for scarring. If you upload a photo, a Health Tap doc could take a good guess at it. You might need antibiotics if it's bad. I would call your primary doc today to be seen. ...Read more
