Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under armpit

bump

My son has bumps under his left armpit. Do you have any idea what this could be? He's had them for about 4 months. They looked like they were going away. But now they look like they are coming back. And, he said that one of the bumps hurt. When he went in for his physical in September we asked the doctor to take a look and she said it was some sort of virus, and that it would go away on its own.

I have excessive, small bumps under my armpits, which become very sensitive and sometimes red when i shave. They also make me look like i haven't shaved, even if i have. Also, my armpits will itch, especially after i have just shaved. What is this, and is there anyway to make them go away or lessen in size?
I woke up yesterday and noticed pain under my right armpit. I felt my armpit and found hard bumps or lumps and they are pea-sized and painful to the touch. There is about 10 under the right armpit. The skin is slightly red and I also have them under my left armpit, but only about 5 of them. They are painful to the touch as well and slightly itchy. The pain feels prickly and tender and it hurts more when I move my arm.
about a week ago I had 2 small pea size bumps under the the right armpit no pain. I tried to pop them thinking they were pimples but they are deep in the tissue. ( no pussing). 2 days ago I woke up with a large lump under my left armpit which is very painful. What should I do? I'm very scared...Could this be Cancer???? I had Ovarian Cancer 18 years ago.
I developed an itchy rash under one armpit a couple weeks ago. I started putting a steroid cream on it and it made the itching stop only when I use it (it itches again when I stop) but the rash/red bumps seem to be spreading. Does anyone know what this could be? Has anyone else had this happen?
I am experiencing similar problems as tina1111 with three or four painful bumps under one armpit and a couple under the other and I am also using mitchum deodorant. i have been off of it for two days and I am waiting to see if this makes a difference.
I'm a 16 year old male, and i've had a lump under my armpit for about a month now, and i was wondering if anyone could give me any insight as to what it is. It isn't very big, it doesn't hurt, although it can get a bit tender if i mess with it, it's pretty hard, and seems to be under the skin. I read somewhere that using an antiperspirant can cause bumps like this, and i use Mitchum Unscented roll on. Does anyone know if this has any type of connection?
Hi I get these big red bumps underneath my armpit. They hurt really bad and last for awhile. Eventually I am able to pop them, almost like a boil. Are these boils or is this more serious? They seem to come up on my lymph nodes but when one goes away another comes up almost in the same spot. Please help me!

NOT TOO LONG AGO I BEGAN TO GET A RAISED BUMP UNDER MY ARMPIT. IT DIDNT HURT TILL I ACTUALLY NOTICED IT, AND THE PAIN WASNT BAD AT ALL.I SEARCHED THE NET AND THE ONLY THING I COULD COME UP WITH WAS THAT I WAS USING MY BROTHERS DEODORANT FOR LIKE 3 TO 4 WEEKS BEFORE THE BUMP SHOWED UP. I STOPED USING HIS DEODORANT AND HAD HIM BUY ME A NEW ONE. HE BAUGHT THE SAME BRAND DEODORANT BUT I THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT SINCE IT WAS NEW THIS TIME. WELL THE BUMP WENT AWAYS AND USED THE NEW DEODORANT.
But, yesterday morning I found out this two bumps under my right armpits only exactly at 14 weeks after exposure. I was freaked. I went to doctor today and he told me that one is pimple and other is staph (something in that nature), he told me that people are getting it everywhere, it's a skin disease. I asked him whether it's lymph node and he said it's not. He said that lymph node would be pea sized, the staph lump was bean sized.

Hello. Recently I developed a singular red spot under my armpit. It doesn't itch or give me problems at all. It is perfectly circular, about a 1/2 inch big all around and flat. At first I thought maybe I got pinched or something, but I don't remember anything pinching me and the area isn't easily obtainable for something to pinch it. It's been there for about 2 weeks now. I'm not sure what it is, and I fear the worst. If you could please help determine what it is, I would be very thankful.

Hi there , I have what I think is a rash of some sort under my armpit. It is only on the right arm and the left arm is slightly red , but no pain . It does not itch , just hurts a lot when I move my arm around . They are like long red bumps that hurt on the touch . I saw a pharmacist and she said it could be a fungal infection. She said I might have to use "Lamisil Cream" , which is a lot of $$. The problem is I don't have coverage and I cannot afford this cream at the moment.
I have big red bumps under my Armpit. It started out as a rash, and then a few big bumps formed on my arm. Then weeks later they have doubled. They get red when I sweat or when water hits them. Now it's to the point to where It hurts to lift up my arms and it feels like boiling water hitting them when I take a shower. I'm only 15 years old. Please help me?
