Natural mamas, really need help!

Posted by   + Show Post

My sister keeps getting a rash under her armpits and doesn't know what it's from. It's not fungal. She's gotten an antibiotic for it before, but it comes back.  She doesn't typically wear any deoderant so I don't think it's a reaction to that.  Any idea what she could use to get it to go away? Tea tree oil doesn't help.

Eta: She doesn't shave, use antiperspirant or deoderant.

Maybe she should shower every once and a while.

Coconut oil. It should clear up anything. It's anti microbial, anti bacterial, anti fungal.... It's like majik.

Try coconut oil. It works wonders for skin. Or a mix of coconut oil and raw shea butter. I wish her the best.

I've seen a few co replies. I'll let her know. What does the raw shea butter do?

Is she SURE its not fungal? That's prime yeast territory and an antibiotic won't get rid of that. She'd need an anti fungal cream.

She doesn't shave her pits, except when her hubby is home, which is only once every month or two.

Yes, they tested it. She isn't sure what she does have but she knows it's not fungal. Yeast was my first thought too.
