    another skin problem

    ok i was using some cruddy gillette deodorant in feb/march. bottom line, after a week or so, it was giving me chemical burn. i switched deodorants to something that does not bother me. fast forward a few months.. its now june and it still hasnt healed. the redness is gone but i have this now

    it looks like fungus. even if its not, its nasty. internet diagnosis would be nice.. obviously i'd prefer not to spend money on a doctor if i can buy BOOM tough actin tinactin for this... because it looks kind of like athletes foot in my armpit

    heres a pic of the nastiness

    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    a dermatologist would be the best choice... if you absolutely cant see a doc then shave off the hair and get some sort of topical antibiotic until you CAN see a doc

    See a doctor. You don't want to put any corticosteroids on it if it's infected.

    btw, Gillette shaving cream gave me a similar problem. Make absolutely sure that if you use crap like that you shower after using it.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    I half agree. A doctor or dermatologist would be your best choice. If you can't get in right away, trim the hair and keep it super clean. You might want to lay off the deoderant for awhile (apply every other day or something). Until you find out what it is, assume that any sort of chemical will aggrivate it.
