Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. It seems that you have allergic rash because of sweating or an allergic reaction to some substance in the body. The rash occurs in the underarms. The allergy is supported by the itching. The reason that itching occurs is because of release of histamine from the body. You should keep the area under the armpits dry by using talcum powder. Make sure he wears loose cotton clothing. Do not wear clothing that is itchy to avoid any rash. If the rash still persists, please talk to a Doctor. Hope this helps.
