I recently have extremely itchy and now burning underarms

Customer Question

Hi, I recently have extremely itchy and now burning underarms for over 3 weeks now. There is no rash, and no bumps. No excessive sweating and no body odor, but the burning and itch feeling is intense and I don't know what kind of doctor I need to see. I discontinued using Tom's Deodorant and have not shaved, but it still persists. Help!

Itching without rash can be

Polycythemia very
An internist can cover all of these areas.
