My poor armpits

(4 Posts)

Both armpits have suddenly become a haven for skin tags, dry patches and itchiness.

I've never waxed, shaved only when I have to, use a sparing amount of anti-perspirant (I don't seem to sweat).

They're really itchy and one tag is looking awful. I haven't changed anything in my clothes washing routine neither.

Help me help my poor little armpits!

I got skin tags under my arms in late pregnancy, but I sort of pulled them off as soon as I spotted them appearing. It didn't hurt but did bleed a bit, they haven't come back.

Are you pregnant, or eating a lot of sugar recently? I noticed a correlation of their appearance and sugar levels in my diet.
