What causes sores?

Out of the blue my dd who is 6 yrs old has like 3 to 4 little marks underneath her underarm they look like open cuts like the top layer of the skin was scratched off and they are the size smaller than a pea. I have just been putting "Hydrocortizone" bc it itches. You know like when you have a scab and you break the scab that is what it kind of looks like...Thanks!

  • Could be an infection, it would be prudent to get her to a doc and get them checked out

  • To me i sounds like a excema type thing if it is itchy if it does not get better with in a few days then I would ask a DR.
