Its driving me INSANE!!!

Alright, I posted another question about my itchy armpits. Strange I know. But now they HURT really bad. They are sore. My dr. said they are just overly dry and to use lotion. And I have but they arent getting better. Should I call her again? Should I keep using the lotion? What could this be?

  • I'm not sure but something that I have found that works good is to put some baby oil on my pits right after I shower, let it sit a min and then towel off like normal. Have you tried switching deodorants? Something may be irritating your skin.

  • How about not using deodorant, but wiping with witch hazel instead. It's an astringent.

  • Or maybe change the way you shave...only shave down.. not down and up!! Thats what i use to do and now I only shave down because the other way I would get really itchy also!! And use a moisturizing deodorant! Maybe that will help!!

  • Could be excema... allergies can cause this... I'd suggest this to the doc, sometimes they need a little encouragement!
