Bright yellow armpit stains and strong armpit odor I can't wear white shirts at all. Deodorant and soap isn't working?
The apocrine sweat: Glands in the armpit secrete a fatty type of sweat different from skin sweat glands. Bacteria work on apocrine sweat creating bromhidrosis resulting in offensive/hard to control odor. The basic strategy is cleaning the skin regularly (1-2 X daily) with germicidal soap to reduce bacteria, shaving, drying, strong anti-perspirant. Discard stained clothing. Keep doing same, just more/more intensely. ...Read more

Maybe, maybe not: A pimple (whitehead) contains white blood cells (forming the whitish or yellowish stuff). The stuff is called pus, and is a reaction to trapped bacteria, oils, and/or skin cells (called a comedone). Once the pus is out, the pimple dries up in less than 2 days. However, if it stays mushy, reddened, tender, or has more pus coming out, it may be infected (and so needs a doctor's evaluation). ...Read more

The doctor can start treatment, or he can do additional testing if the diagnosis is uncertain. ...Read more
