I woke up this morning with 4-5 superficial sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> and 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my left arm.

Any ideas/suggestions?
My 9 year old daughter has had these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> but not in her armpit area. they go up her arm( underneath) to under her breast and down her side. She said they don't hurt and they don't itch. there is one bump not that has a lump under it that is about the size of a lima bean maybe a little smaller. When i touch it, it does move around a little bit and she said that it doesnt hurt when i move it. She had them before and they went away but now they came back and its more then before.
for about four years now I have had these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> I have used topical creams prescribed by my doctor, had them drained and still they are reoccurring. When I get them they leave me in pain and exhausted they also throw off my equilibrium. Is there anything that I can do? One doctor suggested I remove my sweat glands but still there would be no guarantee that these bumps will not come back.
Every time that I donate blood, the next day I have hard, tender nodules under only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> from which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> blood was drawn.(I also get this when they take blood for lab tests). I think that they are swollen lymph nodes maybe? they get as big as a small marble and are very tender to the touch and go away in 3-4 days. I am quite allergic to latex, but they always use all latex-free gloves and equipment with me, and I have no other signs/symptoms with it.
I am a 17 year old female. I have red pimple like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> and in my armpit. they can be painful, and are not usually white heads. It spreads down my side to right above my bra strap. Is it from shaving and how can i reduce/get rid of it? -Thanks! Jessi.
Everytime that I give blood, or have blood labs taken, the next day I have hard lumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> armpit on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> side that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> stick was. they are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> diameter of a dime, are firm and rubbery, and are very tender and painful. they usually clear up in 4-5 days, but they have me concerned that I am having an allergic reaction of some sort. I want to continue giving blood, but I'm scared that there is something I'm not aware of that is causing this reaction. What could this come from?
A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> center of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out. Apply warm compresses on these bumps and consult a dermatologist for examination and confirmation of diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

A few days later my child who used deoderant behind me complained of the same problem but it was a bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> childs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> that felt like a small knot and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> was hurting also. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my arm looked like a herpes blister in which I am still trying to figure out how it could have gotten there. Both of our blisters or bumps are gone,mine left a peeling of skin where the blister was and the childs left nothing.
i have had some hpv skin lesions eg wart on eyelid I have just recently broken out in a mass of small raised <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> both armpits. Is this likely to be hpv? i have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> armpits waxed in the hope this will clear up, becomes itchy sometimes and occurred last week with no sign of clearing thus far. I have been taking beta carotene to help the skin generally, Would you suggest this as potentially helpful in combatting hpv?
I noticed a few days ago after shaving that I had a bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>. It was only slightly sore at first but was yellow/white full of puss. It easily sqeezed out. I usual get razor bumps; however this time the minor bump turned into a large lump under my left armpit. I've noticed a dimple in the middle of it. the lump is sore and tender and inflammed. Should I try to drain it again even though it's very very very painful and won't budge?
However the next day, i noticed a few pimples <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>. I thought it was just a shaving rash as sometimes i get them. However, as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> week has gone on, it has become increasingly itchy and a red rash has appeared. (Only under my right arm, the left is fine). the rash is like lots of big red bumps. Its itchy, and stings a bit when i move my arm. It looks a little bit like eczema.
I don't have health insurance and cannot afford to see a doctor. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> and eventually spread to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> other. they are red, tender and vary in size. Some have whiteheads like a pimple, but they do not feel or act like zits. the white is deeper, farther under the skin. Some have spread back to where my arm and back meet, and down to where my bra sits. I have tried not wearing deodorant and not shaving thinking it was an allergic reaction to something.
I am unable to wear short sleeve shirts most of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> time. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s will start out as red welts, which turn into tiny, tiny white heads. these things itch uncontrollably! Sometimes they fill up with with the pimple like puss. If I squeeze them I get some relief. Dermatologists state this condition is eczema, I do not believe it because A. None of the medications worked. B. they always seem to have a fine tiny hair sticking out of the middle. C.
Hello, I'm 17 years old. And I have been receiving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my armpits for a very long time. And the pain varies on how big the bump is. If its a big one then it hurts when move my arm up and down. When its small its doesn't really hurt that much. But anytime I get one I squeeze them with two fingers and sometimes blood, puss, or a substance that looks like water, or even blood mixes with water.
i need to know how I can get rid of these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> skin around my neck. I've been to 2 dermatologists and they both said its "cysts" under the skin and nothing can be done to get of them unless they are infected. I have had one or two that was "poppable" and when squeezed a white string tissue came out. After it healed, the skin was flat again. Should i use a needle and poke every single one to release that white string tissue? will a shot of cortisone work?
After the bus ride I went inside and felt the pain again upon shifting my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>. So I reached <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span> to find a bump about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> size of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> head of a Q-tip. I had no idea what it was. Looking around on the internet I found that it could be one of many things. Apparently there are lymph nodes under your arm that swell as they fight infection. My main fear is that it could be cancer. I've never shaved my arm pits.
My 10 years old daughter have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arm</span>...she said it itch really bad. Is it her deordant that cause to break out...

It has been hot lately and i did change deodorant to a clear gel instead of a powder however the bumps are only under my right arm and not my left. What could this be?
