Severe rashes on the armpit and neck. Tried using calamine and hydrocortizone. Rashes spreading. Allergy?

I have a severe rash covering my armpits and moving up my neck and down my torso. Thought it was an allergy to my detergent so i changed to hypoallergenic , and stopped using the deodorant i was using. tried putting calamine and hydrocortizone. The itching kept happening and spreading. it s been two months of this. What can i do and what can it be? NO exposure to poison oak or ivy.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
It appears that you have a fungal infection, that is why it is spreading from armpits to the neck. You needs to be treated with antifungal agents for complete recovery, along with topical anti fungal agents.
If it is an allergy it wont spread like this, but may appear in other places of the body.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
