Has anybody ever had a rash under their armpit? What helped with the itch?

Has anybody ever had a rash under their armpit? What helped with the itch?

I had an ingrown boil that finally broke loose. Now it's leaking. Since there is an open wound I can't wear deodorant (deodorants say not to use on broken skin), and I am now getting a rash. What have you done for the rash and the odor?

Adherence

Taking meds daily at the right time can keep up undetectable. For some people, after awhile that/those pill/pills can get frustrating. Have you or had you, ever decided to stop taking your meds? If you stopped, are you still off them? If you stopped and restarted, what made you restart? Have you ever thought about it but never did it?

has anyone taken Egrifta and how has it been long term

has anyone taken Egrifta and how has it been long term

Does anyone have any first hand experience with this drug? Since it is a growth hormone and I am lacking testosterone due to my blood pressure medicine that the doctor refuses to take me off of, I'm worried about taking it and my manboobs growing. any other suggestions to losing weight would be… read more
