Trichomycosis Axillaris

A 40-year-old man presented with axillary odor and reported having had dirty axillary hair for 4 years. The condition worsened in the summer, staining his clothing. His medical history was notable only for obesity. On examination, creamy yellow concretions were observed along several hair shafts (Panels A and B). The concretions took on a soft fluorescence when examined under a Woods lamp, but the skin of the axilla showed no coral red fluorescence, ruling out erythrasma.
