Customer Question
Hello, I woke up...

Hello, I woke up the other day and I had a few red bumps under my armpit that were a bit itchy, then the next day it seemed to be spreading towards my breast and today I have even more.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

About 3 days, it’s not obnoxiously itchy only when I think about it, I tried using some moisturizer but I don’t think that helped the spreading

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have an open wound right above my armpit, I stopped shaving my armpits and it seemed to help my problem but whenever I would shave my armpit I would get these larger bumps that were tender and hurt to touch and sometimes get infected and get puss, turn into an open wound, but then heal after a little. I haven’t had any new recent bumps but I’ve had this open wound for a while and nothing seems to be healing it

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
