What is the definition or description of: rash in armpit?

Better question?: The question does not really make sense and is too non-specific! If you want to know what causes the rash under the arm, it could come from deodorants more often as a contact allergy or non-specific reaction. Fungal infections and bacterial infections of the glands under the arm are to be ruled out.

Many possibilities: There are many types and causes of skin rashes that could cause itching. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Daughter has eczema: Your daughter has atopic dermatitis or eczema. The rash under her armpits may have been caused by a perfumed underarm deodorant. For treatment you might get a non allergic deodorant. A mid potent steroid would help in the other areas affected.

Rheumatology: While it is possible you might have had a reaction to your deodorant; the presence of a rash, pain and swelling in the joints can also suggest a possible rheumatologist condition, such as lupus for example. So if it does not clear up quickly, you might benefit from a rheumatologist workup.

Recent rash?: This may be from a viral infection or a drug reaction. If the problem goes away after 10 days, don't worry about it. If the rash persists, then see a dermatologist. If pus is present, consider impetigo It is unlikely to be an allergic reaction in the absence of itching.

My 8th mnt daughter has skin rashes on head, elbows, knee, bumps, cheeks, neck, arm. Her dad has psoriasis. Cud it be d same n is it serious? Using cetaphil.

Itchy?: At this young age, I would be more suspicious of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which may be linked to food allergies as well as airborne allergens. If these rash itch, then eczema is more likely. If you are using Cetaphil lotion, be sure to use it regularly and apply it within 3 mins after bathing. Talk to your pediatrician. A discussion of eczema can be found elsewhere.
