If you or one of your family members is experiencing red rash spots under the armpit there are a number of reasons that could account for this condition. It could be something as simple as a heat rash during the summer months or a bad reaction to a new anti-perspiration product. This can be a very uncomfortable situation and if you want relief you need to act quickly on the problem.

If you have recently switched to a new anti-perspiration product it is very likely this could be the source of the problem. Some people are allergic to the active ingredients in some products, and you should look very carefully at the labels of the product to see just what it contains. Switch to a powder-based product for a few days and see if this does not remedy the situation. If you are a lady that shaves your underarms you may want to investigate a special razor product made for sensitive skin. Many razors now come equipped with soothing lotion that coats your skin as you shave.

If you cannot trace to the problem to your anti-antiperspirant or razor, it may be necessary to stop shaving your armpits for a period of time to see if this clears the problem up. Whatever you you do, under no circumstances should you pick at the spots or try to pop them as this can make a bad problem much, much worse.

If none of these approaches clears up your problem, you need to pay a visit to your doctor. If he cannot diagnose the problem he can refer you to a qualified dermatologist that can help you with most any skin problem. Red rash spots under the arm are not an unusual problem, many people especially in tropical and hot areas suffer from the problem. Treat it with care and you'll be back in good health in no time.

It is a fungal infection, see you doctor for the correct cream and would more then likely be daktacort but you need it prescribed

Well it could be from shaving or possibly you could be having a reaction to the deodorant you are using.

I've got the same.. It's really unbearably itchy sometimes and because I'm a teenager, I think it may be to do with my glands, because it's worse if I don't shave and I've changed my deodorant and stopped using it before. Neither option helps. I'm getting worried about it, but my parents assure me it's nothing to worry about, but I think they may be wrong..?

This could be caused by dry skin! This is caused by shaving and use of deoderants! A good moisturiser should help you!
