I have a rash, or what looks like a rash inside my inner arm near my left armpit. It seems to have spread just slightly to my back. I have 2 bumps on my back and in my inner arm are just a collected group of them. Actually 2 groups of them. It's very painful. It's warm as if it's infected. It itches AROUND the area, and it stings and burns randomly. I don't know what it is and I can't afford a doctor. Please help!!

  • The only thing I could suggest, is maybe it is seborea, a skin condition. It can arise under the arm pits, and on the face around the nose, in eyebrows and the out edge of your face where your scalp is. It can appear in your ears. My brother has it under his arm pits and I have in on my face and in ears. It is where your oil gland overproduce and you skin reacts horribly to it. It can be raw or flaky. The doctors would probably prescribe a corticosteroid to help with itching. They may or may not diagnose you properly. Sometimes they diagnose you according to how you respond to different meds. I found out recently, that it can be caused by an enzyme defiency. I have started eating half of my food each day is raw(enzymes are found in raw fruits and veggies). My seborea goes away a little, but if I go totally raw it goes away and doesn't come back until I change my diet again off raw. You can buy enzyme pill at health food store and they will help if you have seborea. I would suggest going to the doc for initial meds that may cause it to clear up. Best Wishes,
