The Cause Of Frequent Itching And Sore Armpits Due To Frequent Scratching?
Hello. I am Nina, so this is it. Lately my armpits get itchy a lot and I often scratch because I can’t stand the itching. until finally I felt sore in my armpit area. when using the powder anti odor underarms sometimes feel sore. I ended up not scratching anymore. but my armpits became black and there was peeling skin and there were spots in the black area. that’s why and how to fix it huh?
Hello nina12, Thank you for the question.
Itchy underarm areas can be caused by:
eczema contact dermatitis ringworm folliculitis When you scratch an itchy area, it can cause small sores. The use of powder on the scratched area causes further irritation. This irritation causes inflammation of the skin which eventually causes a reddish or black discoloration of the skin (hyperpigmentation) and causes the skin to peel off.
The best step you can take is to consult with a doctor to find the cause of this itchy armpit so that it can be treated immediately. The discoloration of the armpit to black can be treated if the cause of the itching has been treated. If it is still itchy, you are likely to scratch and skin irritation will continue. Try as much as possible to avoid scratching the itchy area. You can use salicylic powder or calamine lotion to relieve itching. Do not apply deodorant to this area until the skin irritation has resolved.
I hope this helps.
