Hello, my daughter has a rash under her armpit for about two weeks now. i called to make an appointment to have it looked at three days before my vacation and they explained that a rash without fever and itching is not dangerous.

Dermatologist 's  Response
As stated by you that the rash does not produce any symptoms, there is nothing to get worried about.
There are many diseases which may appear as asymptomatic rash in axilla region like erythrasma, acanthosis nigricans, at times even dermatophytosis may be symptomless. Most of these conditions are treatable. Acanthosis nigricans has less chances of improvement, but it does not cause any other harm on the skin.
Till you visit the doctor, stay relax.
