How to Get Rid of Blackheads Under Arms

Blackheads under the arms are the same as a blackhead on any part of your body. Hair follicles develop oil that helps to protect skin. When the follicle becomes clogged, oil builds up and skin becomes irritated. Clogged pores that remain open at the surface have a black appearance; hence, the name blackhead. Shaving and sweating are sufficient to irritate the skin under your arms. This irritation blocks the pores and it can develop acne. For mild acne, treatment can include some basic hygiene and over-the-counter medications.

  • Wash under your arms at least twice a day w/ a face cloth and mild cleanser. Clean the area well after exercising.
  • Use an over-the-counter ointment under arms at night. Choice a product containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic aced. If the cream causes more irritation, discontinue use.
  • Use a hypoallergenic deodorant. Any type of irritation can lead to clogged pores and blackheads, this includes dermatitis from deodorant. If the blackheads increase w/ a particular type of product, change until you find one better tolerated by your skin.
  • Put a hypoallergenic body powder under your arms to absorb oil. Over product of oil can cause clogs in pores. Powder under the arms will absorb the oil and should reduce problems.
  • Apply a filmy shaving cream under the arms before using a razor. Use the cream liberally. Shave w/ a single-bladed, disposable razor and change the razor each time. According to site, double-bladed razors damage the open layer of skin and can lead to blackheads.
