Axillary seborrheic dermatitis – Armpit Rash

What is it

Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect the armpit, in which case it causes intense reddening and an itching/burning sensation. It may be simultaneously present in other body areas or be confined to armpits and the surrounding area. Axillary seborrheic dermatitis is often mistaken for an allergic reaction to deodorant.

What to do

To treat axillary seborrheic dermatitis, the irritated part should not be washed with soap and water but patted with cotton wool soaked in an acqueous solution of di benzalkonium chloride (easily found in a pharmacy), dried and then apply  2S CREAM that should be massaged well into the skin.

The dermatitis regresses slowly over a period of one or two weeks.

Once the skin of the armpits has returned to its normal color, washing can be resumed using CLEANSING CREAM followed, if an antiperspirant/deodorant is necessary, by ASTRINGENT GEL.
