Itching area, spot in armpits which is getting bigger.

Resolved Question:


My wife has an itching area near the armpits. It started on one the right side as a small spot but it got bigger over time. And now it's also on the left side. It's burning a lot (intermittently) and itching all the time. The burning gets worse with touching.

Thanks for posting your query at

I can understand your concern.

You seem to be having fungal infection mixed with bacterial infection.

Its called tinea corporis.

I would recommend application of terbinafine cream mixed with Mupirocin cream twice a day for two weeks.

For itching, tab. Claritin once daily at night can be taken.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care,

Patient replied :

Thank you Doctor. About the application of terbinafine cream mixed with Mupirocin. Should I mix both when applying or apply at separate times.

Best Regards.

You can apply both of them at a gap of 5 minutes of application of each.
