Armpit ringworm, also called Tinea Axillaris, is caused by dermatophyte fungi such as Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton. The armpits are naturally moist places having continuous supply of sweat or perspiration (especially in summer), so armpit ringworm is very difficult to get rid of. Possible signs of armpit ringworm include:
  • Itching, burning and redness in armpits.
  • Shedding of the skin.
  • Foul odor emanating from the armpits.
  • Darkening of the skin.
It should be noticed that armpit ringworm may spread to other parts of the skin if not treated immediately. Keywords: armpit ringworm signs
