Redness In Arm Pit

While bathing my ds this morning I found some redness under one of his arm pits. Does anyone know what this could be? I put diaper rash cream on it to soothe it. It doesn't seem to bother him much and I am going to keep an eye on it. It's not a rash just some redness.

my dd gets this sometimes also and under her neck (she's really chubby). You just have to try and keep it clean and dry. I sometimes put some A&D or some bacitracin if it seems really irritated. Its just moisture. When my dd spits up a little or some formula drips out of her mouth is rolls under her neck. It should be fine. Hope this helps

The redness is a lot better today. It's still there, just not as bad. I think I will keep putting cream on it until its all better. Thank you drea for responding.

my ds had this too when he was about 6 or 7 months - I put diaper rash cream on it and that helped - try and keep his armpits dry - dry them real good after his bath - I was worried too when I saw it - it looked painful but ds didnt seem to be bothered by it and it went away after like a week and never returned! Weird!
