Hi, I'm 30 female. For a long time I suffer from persistent skin irritation which is located near armpit and even below
till chest. I have tried out different treatments like antibiotic and funginal creams but all these helpless. This irritation has cyclical period - disappears and comes back in a short time. Any idea?
I think it's sweat dermatitis, folliculitis, allergic reaction. There's an antibiotic cream, mupirocin (Bactroban®) which should be applied twice daily for a week but please try to concern to a dermatologist before applying it on your skin.
