Ok I've just moved house and have not yet had the chance to register with a new doctor..

Anyway..

The problem is:

Itchy armpits. And not just itchy, really dry and I've noticed these small brown marks, kinda like birthmarks on them too. It's REALLY ANNOYING.

I'm worried because when I went to have a consultation about having laser surgery for a small birthmark on my face I remember the Doctor checking I didn't have any on my armpits.. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time as I was 16 and well, tennage attitude you know.. But now it's bugging me!!! ARGH anyone know what it is and/or how I can treat it?

Hi Little Shay, I really can't say what the problem could be but it may be your anti perspirant or deodorant that is irritating your skin.  Do you apply your deodorant right after shaving?  If so that could be the cause.  It is just a suggestion since I am not a dr. but that may be the cause. Hope this may help.

I do apply deodorant after shaving occasionally but I've been using the same deodorant for years? I've been reading on some other posts about armpit irritation, looks like soaps n' stuff can cause it too, and I DID get a load of stuff from Lush for xmas! And I've been treating myself to them lately so maybe it's those products!

Hi Little Shay, If the products you are using are not hypo allergenic they can be causing you the irritation.  Also, don't apply deodorant after shaving.  It can really cause problems under your arms.  Try to shave at night so you have over night before you use deodorant. Your new products may have scents or additives that are causing your problems.  If that is the reason then you need to only use products that are allergen free.  There are lots of them out there, you just have to look carefully and even ask your pharmacist for a recommendation.  Hope it all clears up.
