More itchy armpits ~ lack of hormones?

I have been having this problem for a while (Itchy Armpits). I thought I was going crazy so I changed deoderants even tried hypoalergenic types but it really hasn't helped. I am wondering if it has anything to do with lack of horomones?
I am almost 6wk. post op. and can not believe the things that
are happening to my body. I was already through the menopause so I thought I was safe but seems not to be the case. I plan to discuss this with the Dr. when I see her again.
I just wondered if anyone else has had this problem. I have seen a few blogs of people that have but just wondered.

Re: More itchy armpits.

It is another area that can have issues with yeast infections-warm and moist. I sometimes get the itchies and find that my prescription cream for yeast infections (that I can get under my breasts and under my skin rolls ) works to get rid of it in my armpit area too. I do think changing hormone levels has many affects on our bodies and we all adjust uniquely our own way
Hope this helps

Re: More itchy armpits ~ lack of hormones?

I had the same issue in peri menopause years ago and thought I would scratch my skin raw. I did find that switching to an organic deoderant ( I use Tom's) that does not have aluminum helped. BTW, there is a down side, it does not work as well and I now find I get kind of gamey pretty easily.
