Patchy red rashes on my neck, under my breasts and my armpits - has been like this for a number of days and are getting worse.
Itchy rashes under armpit, what are possible causes and OTC treatments? I shower daily, don't shave.
Dermatitis vs fungal:
An 'itchy' rash in the axilla (arm pit) may be a 'contact dermatitis' or a yeast/fungal infection. An otc treatment for dermatitis is Cortaid (hydrocortisone 1%) and the treatment for fungal infection is otc 'anti-fungal' e.g. Lotrimin (clotrimazole). Dermatitis may be caused by exposure to chemicals/fragrances in deodorant/anti-perspirants so a hypo-allergenic subsitute may be needed.
