the dark areas under your arms is it velvety looking or is it dark as a result of shaving?

I had an eczema break out. it has long since gone. i do not shave, i wax, but the underarm is really dark. i have been advised many things, but i dont want to use anything that could possibly make it worse.

You should exfoliate under the arms using a lufah. Dead skin cell build up can cause discolouration. Also take caution when using any products under your arms. Use baby powder and bicarb of soda instead of roll on's as certain ingredients can cause the skin to appear hyper-pigmented.

If the skin has a velvety appearance, go see your Dr and have your insulin tested as you may be insulin resistant
