Why Do Underarm And Itchy Skin Become Black?
Hello, I don’t know exactly when but for a long time my armpit skin turned black and felt itchy, I rarely use deodorant. My armpit hair has also fallen out and it doesn’t grow anymore, why is that?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Black underarm skin can be caused by several possibilities, including frequent shaving of the armpit hair, friction between the armpits with clothing, deodorant irritation, hormonal conditions, pregnancy, diabetes, bacteria, diseases, or conditions of being overweight / obese.
The existence of black skin due to shaving can be replaced by the waxing method, also can use deodorant that matches your skin. Black skin color is caused by a bacterial infection due to lack of hygiene, so the use of antibiotics can be a solution, in changing hormonal conditions such as pregnancy can also cause the skin of the armpits to become blackish, medical conditions such as acanthosis nigricans can also cause blackness in the armpits.
To find out what conditions underlie your blackened armpits, it is recommended to see a doctor for further examination and management related to your condition. Management will be arranged based on the underlying cause. For more information about the condition of blackened underarm skin can access this link.
