Erythrasma. Close-up of a red patch of skin in a man's armpit caused by the bacterial skin infection erythrasma. This condition is caused by the bacteria Corynebacterium minutissimum, and typically affects areas where the skin is in contact, such as the groin, armpits or between the toes. Erythrasma is more common in people with diabetes mellitus, and usually causes no other symptoms apart from change of skin colour. The condition generally clears when treated with the antibiotic erythromycin.
