Hello and welcome to the forum.  We're sorry you are having this problem and know a dermatologist would be beneficial for you to consult with.   One thought to talk to the doctor about is that perhaps it is hypopigmentation due to products such as creams or lotions you've used previously.  Here is an article about hypopigmentation. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320243#types  Trying to figure out why you have a lack of melanin in this area is important.  Could it be from previous products used under your arms?  Could it be due to an autoimmune disorder which can lead to vitiligo.  A doctor may prescribe a steroid cream to help and lasers can do wonders.   Let us know what they say.
