I have underArm bruises with on and off rashes, size 36K breasts and try to wear fitting bras and most times i do not wear a bra at home, causes?

Allergy?: Perhaps the rashes are due to an allergy? I would try a different deodorant. Liquid washing products and clothes drying additives can also be a source of allergic sources. The bruises might be due to small size bra. Google bra fitting and they tell you how to measure and calculate fit. If bra pinches it could possibly bruise the skin. Hope these ideas help. ...Read more

So...maybe not a bruise, and I would suggest seeing your own practitioner. ...Read more

Keep getting armpit pain, bruised feeling sore to the touch. Been to dr 2x's and no answers but didn't do tests. No lumps that can be felt.

Armpit: If your pain hasn't resolved, there are a few tests that can be considered. One is an ultrasound of the armpit to look for fluid collections or enlarged lymph nodes. Also, an xray of the area is reasonable to evaluate the shoulder joint and the ribs in that region. If no abnormality is detected, it may be related to a muscle strain or tendonitis. ...Read more
