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.

Well seems like a lot of mamas are recommending coconut oil. I love me some coconut oil sooo I say use that! Haha

Sounds like a razor rash to me.

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

Yeah, I'm not really sure what to tell her either. lol  It could be any number of things that any number of remedies could solve. :)

When and if she does wear deodorant is it solid or gel? My son got a red rash that dried his skin from using the gel type of deodorant. He said it hurt like crazy too.

Not sure. idk that she ever uses it. lol

She could try putting lemon juice under her arms... heat a lemon in the microwave for about 5 seconds and use the joice. It will keep her sweating down and it will help dry out the rash so it will heal. She can also use corn starch under her arms. it will keep the rash dry so it can heal.

It could just be a rash from sweating.

I don't think she really sweats, especially enough to cause a rash that won't go away.

Have her rub some rubbing alcohol on it.  Yes I know that sentence is redundant.  A lot of natural "crunchy" people use alcohol as deodorant.

I don't know maybe a yeast infection? Tell her to try an anti fungal cream you get over the counter.
