Irritation found in deeper skin folds is called, intertrigo. It is most often found in underarms, tummy folds, back rolls, groin, thigh creases, under breasts and neck folds, It is identified by inflammation due to friction (skin rubbing on skin), wetness and a foul odor when it is complicated by yeast or bacteria. It initially leaves skin red and inflamed and may lead to darkened, thickened skin that becomes prone to cracking in the deeper creases over time.
It is common in individuals who are over weight, diabetic, have polycystic ovarian syndrome, and experience friction due to skin rubbing on skin.
If this condition is what motivated you to begin using Lume, please seriously consider these tips before starting.
Lume is in the acidic pH range and will exfoliate the affected and unhealthy skin. It is best to improve your skins condition before beginning Lume. We do not recommend using Lume on broken or irritated skin.
Once you have the itch scratch cycle and irritation under control, you can begin to introduce Lume just once a week after showering and drying off really well. You only need a trace amount, just a few times a week to keep odor at bay and support the healthy acid mantle of your skin.
