OKay well a while back I got two rashes. One under my right arm pit and one under the left arm pit. They hurt like sin and ive never had a rash like it before. I washed it, then used ice and was able to get them to go away. the ice was really just to sooth the pain idk if i actually helped. Now its back on my left arm pit and im wondering what its from and if i should be worried.
Light red kinda
Smells like Decomposing flesh and BO mixed in one. (truly awful)
From the symptoms it can be due to intertrigo which usually appears red and raw-looking, and may also itch, ooze, and be sore. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical zinc oxide cream are very helpful(apply with a paper towel and not directly with hands).Application of mild steroid cream also helps. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done by a dermatologist.
