Armpit Rash

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?

Baby Blemishes

Everyone wants to have skin like a baby -- soft, clear, smooth and rosy. In reality, even infants can break out like teenagers. While the tiny blemishes and rashes can be upsetting to parents, they are usually harmless and require minimal treatment, if any.
