User rating for this question
I have a red rash on my shoulder/back. I am also experiencing pain on that side in my armpit. No rash in the armpit. It's like the pain is 'in the skin' not on the skin or in the muscle

If possible please upload a photograph of the lesion. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis. Waiting for your response. Thank you
