Help? bumpy and red, around the back sides of the arm pit, both sides. I figure it's something i am taking- Maybe in my diet that comes through the sweat.

I would look into an allergy to something in your deoderant. I developed an allergy to something in my "natural" deoderant after using the same stuff for years. If you've recently switched to a new brand or style I'd say it's even more likely that you're allergic to something. Is the rash painful?

Howdy Laura!! I had that exactly as you described just before vacation about a month ago! My guess was yeast since I was on heavy duty abx for possible Lyme. I had my chiro "scan" for it (he does muscle testing, NMT & NET) & he said it was neuroemotional stuff (most likely stress.) He was probably right, I don't know....you might want to wipe some GSE on there for a while just to be safe (grapefruit seed extract) in case it's yeast.

Mamas :thanks

I thought no one cared about my poor arm-pits

soygur: i had thought ?alergy to deopdorant? but see the rash is mostly on the back of the pit as opposed in the heart of it.

Matesequoia: no abx here, but i am on a higher med dosage for my bipolar. And there has been a good amount of stress within the last 2 months.

I have this powder from "Coventry Farms" made with betonite clay, ground sage, rose, and some others that I've been putting on it. anyway, it seems to be geting better.

I mentioned abx because it could be systemic yeast - do you have any other yeast signs?

And, weren't we gonna hang out???

Oh, I see. Yeah, my allergic reactions were always all over my pits (I've had two types). So I'm out of ideas, but I'm glad to hear it's getting better!
