I suppose if a bleaching agent is mild enough to use on the face then it should be ok on the underarms although they are both fairly sensitive areas. If you decide to go ahead I think I would do a small test patch on your underarm to make sure it doesn't cause any adverse reaction as it would be very uncomfortable and  you would probably not be able to use a deodorant on the area if it began to sting, Even if it worked it would only be a temporary solution.

I saw a post on another site where a woman suggested exfoliating the underarm area  twice a week as she said she had tried it and it definitely made the area lighter so perhaps you could try that first to see if it makes any difference. She said that using bleaching agent would only lighten the hair and not the skin so perhaps not a good idea.

I will not advocate for the usage of face bleach on the underarms since the underarms aren't an exposed place like the face where air can easily touch so as to prevent friction which may actually leads to inflammation or burns. Organic substance might be a better solution since it might not really contain harsh chemicals that may be detrimental to one's underarms.
Organic substance like honey can be a good lightening agent for lightening the underarms than other sources. This will be really mild to the underarms skin to avoid irritation and itching there.


. The underarms is really a sensitive place as such a dermatologist should be consulted if need be. All the same a very mild cleanser can also be used with a mild cloth or cotton wool to lighten the underarms.

This depends on the kind of bleaching agent you use. Some could be really harsh and the armpit is a very sensitive part of the body. So is the face too but they are still relatively different parts of the body.
I suggest you use milder and more natural bleaching agents. I suppose you are trying to bleach dark skin. Darker skin is usually an aggregation of dead cells. So the best remedy is that of exfoliating and moisturising.

Bleaching agent won't work well on dead cells. You need to exfoliating first. Exfoliation gets rid of the dead cells and opens your pores. By so doing, the action of any moisturizer and bleaching agent will take effect. I think you should try natural remedies like baking soda and lemon or honey and lemon.

I am trying to figure out why the use of face bleach on underarm. I guess it's for the removal of black spots on that part of the body, or the stoppage of hair growth on the armpit or playing the role of deodorant, which is prevention of body odor. But whichever reason you want to make use of face bleach on your underarm, you have to first and foremost seek the wisdom of medical experts, because it might not be suitable for your health status.

Mind you that there are certain conditions that are health related which could be triggered by the use of any chemical on underarm. You don't want to take the risk of having any complications caused by face bleach on underarm. There is high tendency that if you are not having the type of body that is resistant to irritable issues as well as kidney problems, you shouldn't attempt the use of face bleach on your underarm, but if your body is compatible with it, you can give it a try.

Avoid using harsh chemically products that sell on the market today.  Though they maybe effective but, it can damage the skin. Your underarms is also one of the sensitive park of the body aside from our face. So, whatever you put in your underarms it will easily absorb by the system and since it can cause irritant if the skin won't accept the chemically bleach that you applied on, it may cause rashes or burning sensation. Try not to use any beauty product that is meant for only for your face, because it was just scientifically tested for face not for your underarms. If anything reaction from putting bleach in your underarms that is just for your face, you will regret it afterwards. Try to use natural product made from nature rather than buying chemically beauty product in the market.
