No way: You can not eliminate bacteria on the skin. A very high concentration or the presence of certain more pathogenic bacteria can be problematic. In those cases we use anti-bacterial agents such as antibiotics (topically and/or orally) to treat them. Additionally, the use of other topical anti-microbial agents can be helpful to limit the offending bacteria. ...Read more
I just wanted to know if what I have under my armpit is a rash and what kind of treatment I can use?

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. Get seen if no better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need to be seen: Not enough detail here for correct identification. If it sticks out like a finger, it is an acrochordon (benign skin tag). If it is a lump deep in the skin it is an epidermal syst or tricholemmal cyst. If you shave there it may contain an in-growing hair. Sometimes they have an opening through which you can squeeze out sebum which looks like cream cheeze with a sour odor. ...Read more
