Dear MM
This could be a fungal infection - let your doctor have a look as you may need a prescription for Lamisil cream

I experience the same symtoms. If you are female and have to shave, use conditioner as shaving cream. Then i have good results using a cream like mylocord (not sure of spelling) as a ' deoderant' . Especially in winter when i sweat less, there' s no sweaty smell and the itching stops after a day or two.

I have tried several roll ons, sprays etc. Recently bought Dove sensitive Deo, and are really, touch wood, not feeling like standing with my armpits agains oaktree bark to help scratch.

Maybe the Doc knows of something else to use...
