Erythrasma in a woman's axilla (armpit). This is a skin infection caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium minutissimum. This infection is characterised by scaling, cracks and redness of the skin. Erythrasma tends to develop in warm, damp folds of skin, and is therefore common in the obese. Treatment is with topical or oral antibiotics such as erythromycin or tetracycline.
