I hope someone can help?
I've had tender spots under my armits for a couple of months now. These lumps/redness spots swap between armpits and change position under the armpit. My doctor thinks I have a skin infection as the lumps move with the skin, the skin doesn't roll over the top (not glands). He advised me to stop shaving as he thinks this may be irritating. This isn't exactly an ideal solution for me, i've tried hair removal creams but still end up with the sore patches.
It's really starting to get me down now, i'm a bit relunctant to go back to my GP as i think he'll just fob me off again.
Does anyone know of any other remedies i could try?
