What causes itchy spots in the armpit region?
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image.
I can see faintly red, dry looking, patch of skin with a few excoriations - perhaps from scratching.
I think it is a patch of acute eczematous dermatitis - red, itchy with excoriations. It is not from tanning bed use. It's not leukemia.
I suggest you to use a moisturizer frequently over this area. In addition I suggest you to use a moderately potent topical steroid e.g either mometasone furoate 0.1 % or triamcinolone acetonide0.1%, cream, twice daily, over this patch. In addition you may take a tab. cetrizine 10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.
