Customer Question

I have a red ring under one armpit, but not the other one. I shaved under them two nights ago and noticed it last night after my shower. It's a little warm and tender to the touch. No rash, just redness.
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: It wasn't there Sunday night when i shaved, so it appeared sometime between Sunday night and last night--it's a bright red oval just under the one arm. It does not itch, nor is there a rash. It's warm and feels tender.
JA: Is there anything else the Dermatologist should be aware of?
Customer: Not sure--I freak out a little since I had melanoma 22 years ago, but I don't think this would have anything to do with my lymph system. I'm wondering if I could have an allergic reaction to my deodorant just under one arm?!
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dermatologist about your situation and then connect you two.
