My wife has a rash under her arms that appeared rather suddenly about two weeks ago. She'd used an underarm deodorant that was supposed to be "hypoallergenic"--a liquid version of "Crystal Deodorant" and the rash appeared after that. It's gotten worse gradually in spite of various things we've tried such as talcum powder, neosporin, clay, etc. and it's begun hurting. There's some swelling and it looks rather purple. Any ideas of what it is and what to do?

  • hmmm....tell us the ingredients in the liquid crystal...it could be a coincidence with something else totally unrelated...purple underarms?? It's totally natural...sounds like a coincidence...see if the rash grows..sounds super sensitive...try some Gold Bond for the rash..
