QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Two days ago, I noticed a red patch of skin under my left armpit. It is not itchy. I stopped wearing my deodorant - a natural deodorant that I have been using for five months now. What could be causing this? Should I be concerned?

ANSWER

I'm sorry, but this is not something I can figure out over the internet, I would have to see it. Plan to mention it to your provider at your next visit (unless it gets really bad!) and they can figure it out.
