I have continuing under arm rash that improves for short period of time then will return despite changing detergents, deoderants and using OTC and prescription options. Have recently (in the last week), begun having similar rashes to both areolas (one worse than other) and to small areas of upper arms. Had been diagnosed with allergic dermatitis 2 years ago when having issues with eyelid dryness, flaking, redness and itchiness. The eyelid issue is resolved, but similar treatment I have used in the past for this problem to above mentioned rashes have not been effective. Any suggestions for treament would be much appreciated.
