What is it
Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect the armpits, 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 covered with a layer of 2S CREAM that should be massaged well into the skin.
The dermatitis regresses slowly over a period of one or two weeks.
