Irritated axillae: Something is irritating your skin. An applied substance may be the culprit. Yeast can sprout there. Pores can plug. Try this - wash twice daily with antibacterial soap. Dry well. Air dry too. No deodorants. Use small amounts baby powder.

Hydrosadenitis: Usually, inflammation of lymph nodes induce this type of pain. Any infection on the upper extremity? Other can be related to a rib and brachial nerve compression, or a cervical rib. It is fairly deep and when I press on it I feel pain and the pain radiates down my arm all the way to my hand. The pain feels like nerve pain Heart failure (if underarm pain is due to heart attack) • Permanent loss of sensation • Permanent nerve damage (due to a pinched nerve), including paralysisPulmonary embolism (if deep venous thrombosis is present) • Severe discomfort or pain • Spread of cancer • Spread of infection • See Dr.

Contact dermatitis?: If it is from shaving, you need to go without shaving for awhile until it calms down. If is is a contact dermatitis, a steroid cream or ointment could help as well as not using the deodorant that caused it. So sorry. Very uncomfortable. Try 1 percent hydrocortisone cream along with stopping the deodorant and not shaving. If that doesn't help, see a primary care physician or dermatologist.

I have about seven red itchy sore pimples on my armpits and now starting to hurt from so much scratching, sometimes a clear liquid comes out what is it?

Allergy to cosmetics: My first thought is that you developed allergic contact dermatitis to y our deodorant (very common). Stop using what ever you are currently using and temporarily use corn starch. If this solves the problem, then buy a hypoallergenic deodorant fro clinique or almay. If no better, see a dermatologist or allergist/immunologist.

Swoll node left armpit 1 week. Soreness in right pit but no node. Today sore throat. Night sweats and Itchy vulva w bumps 2 to 3 mo. No fever 42y/o F?

Lymphadenopathy: No way to know why you are having these symptoms without a full history and physical exam and perhaps some labs. Doubt that these are all necessarily related to each other. Go see your family doctor.

Itchy sore on the back of my arm?

Itchy sore on the back of my arm?

Itching sore or rash: Hi without seeing the sore I have to guess a bit. But, given your age I would include in the possible issues psoriasis and/or ringworm. There are some other possibilities but if the itch is persistent and/or your sore is increasing you may need to be seen by a trusted medical provider.

I recently slept at my friends house and she has cats and now I'm itchy and have a large sore bite on my arm. What bit me and should I treat it?

I recently slept at my friends house and she has cats and now I'm itchy and have a large sore bite on my arm. What bit me and should I treat it?

Allergic..: It seems that you are allergic to cats based on the information you are giving us. As far as the sore is concerned this could be part of the allergic reaction or something else but it is not possible to tell without looking at it. I am not sure how easy is for you to access medications but you can ask your local pharmacist for an antihistaminic medication which should help with symptoms.

Chronic Rashes: Chronic, long-term rashes have many different causes, and require a physical examination for diagnosis. Ideally this should be performed by a physician who you can follow up with, so that different treatments can be monitored for their effectiveness over time. Some rashes are more complex, and require consultation with a dermatologist.
