Bacterial Infection Treatment - Physicians      


Trichomycosis Axillaris

This is a superficial bacterial infection in the hair of the armpits and the pubic area. There are small nodules or thickened cylinders attached to the hair which can be seen quite easily. They are usually yellow, sometimes red or brown. This may cause some discolouration on clothing. It is produced by a Corynebacterium.


Using antibacterial soaps usually clears the problem. Oral antibiotics such as erythromycin may also be used.
