Well i think that I have a fungal infection under my arm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: It hurts and I need some advice. Has anyone had one. I am taking a probiotic and using some healing salve which contains calendula, arnica, tea tree and then using clotrimazole cream which is targets brand of tinactin. When I dont work it seems like it almost goes away and then when I work, I have to wear a heavy cotton/polly blend shirt, which I sweat in-I am a waitress at an outside restaurant, it gets awful. Big and red and it hurts. I shaved my armpit becuase I thought that it would keep it more dry. Anyways this is too much info already. Please give me some advice.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Rainbow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rainbow peace"><br>

Oh that sounds like it hurts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Try some lemongrass essential oil diluted in a creme you are already using. What I would do is take 5 drops of the oil in the palm of my hand and then mix with ointment and apply.\<br><br>
Sounds like something is really trying to be eliminated from your lymphatic system. How are your other eliminatory organs? Are they at all congested? The lymphatic could be paying the price.<br><br>
Let me know if you want more information regarding this.

I've found Black Walnut tincture to be very effective for fungal infections, and I believe it is not irritating like tea tree oil can be on sensitive skin (such as armpit).<br><br>
Does it itch? Are you sure it's not hives/some allergic reaction?<br><br>
Good luck.
