same rash in the same spot comes and goes.

User Profile
I keep getting the same rash in the same spot, kinda behind my underarm and it runs from my arm to my back about 3-4". I've been to my dermatologist many times and he tells me it's dermatitis and tells me to keep using locoid cream. He also said to take a daily Zyrtec allergy pill. This has been going on for about six months, the rash comes and goes, but why?

I do not wear deodorant, I'm allergic to all kinds I've tried. No fragrances in my soaps, lotions, Etc..., no hair products. I always wear light cotton long sleeve shirts when outside.

Thank you for asking

Dermatitis is of thousands of types. What type is yours might specify it and help the management. Recurrent rashes and allergies to almost every deodorant is worth assessment and for immune tolerance.

I suggest you get back to dermatologist and let them correlate it clinically for you. Applying topical hydrocortisone may fix it for a while but nipping the evil from the bud is what we need here.

i hope you see it in a right perspective.

take care
