Avatar f tn make sure your razor is clean. I also use witch hazel under my arms after I shave before I put on deoderant. If you need relief, use a hot towel to bring it to a head. Then burn tha tip of a safety pin or a needle and stick it in that middle. You will need assistance because it hurts like hell. Then SQUEEEEEEEEZE it til you can't squeeze it anymore.

Avatar n tn For about a year or two Ihave been getting rashes and multiple abcess at a time in both of my under arms, the abscess have appeared in other areas of my body as well. In the past my doctors just keep treating me with antibiotics but they really dont seem to help or keep them away. Cancer runs in my family, my mother fought a long battle with multiple myloma, and my sister is fighting sarcoma. My sister had one of her hips removed in May and now she has tumors in her lungs.

1299355 tn?1272767249 hi, 2 days ago i found a lump under my arm in my arm pit. its stayed the same size, it doesnt hurt but its a little tender if i press it hard, its the size of a malteaser .. and its quite hard? i dont feel ill, and its not a spot or an ingrown hair because its on the border of where i would usually shave my arms.. when i lift my arm up you can see the lump clear as daylight .. it doesnt look red it just looks like my normal colour skin have you got any idea what it could be?
Avatar n tn I went to a neck doctor and he said it's normal and sent me on my way, but for months I've been discovering more and more of these BB size lumps under my skin, some of them I can pinch and feel, some are hard and some are softer. Keep in mind these cannot be seen, only felt. I have no clue what these are. It seems like all the time I'm discovering more on my neck or around my shoulder and collar bone, and I don't notice them anywhere else on my body.
Avatar n tn Hello all, My wife has had swollen, painful lymphnodes under her arms for several months (since oct 04). It started under one arm and then only recently under the other. Her mamogram was fine. She's had 3 ultrasounds of the armpit and the 2nd time the doctor thought it got smaller, the 3rd time back to the same?!?!She has had her blood checked (yes, everything possible) and nothing shows up. She has no other symptoms whatsoever. She will now get a biopsy.
Avatar m tn 2 days ago i noticed that i had small light red circular spots on my arms, chest, and stomach that kind of resembles a rash but the only thing it doesn't itch or hurt in any way, slightly itch if any but that cold be cause im thinking about it so much. Im just getting over a cold i had for 4 days but i dont think that has anything to do with it. Is this something serious where i need to go to ER? I dont have insurance or should i just ride this out. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I have had cysts under both arms, altlhough not at the same time. They started under my right arm, and I've had 4 of them lanced and drained but they have not been the exact same spot. They have moved to under the left arm (ok, probably not "moved".lol). I've been on antibiotics for 6 months now, the advice of a plastic surgeon my surgeon spoke with (he was going to have the plastic surgeon go in and remove all the "ucky" tissue.....
Avatar m tn But when I am tired or stressed, I will sit under a light and pick my arms forever!!! I've tried Lexapro and it doesn't really help. The only thing I can do is try and make myself stop. Any other suggestions out there??
Avatar n tn Since then I have been pretty healthy until recently. About 8 weeks ago I started getting these severe pains in my right side under my rib cage. When I take a deep breath it is like someone is stabbing me. I have no fever and this pain is re-occuring. Some days I am fine, others I can't move. I have been to the emergency room twice. The first time they told me my liver enzymes were real high but there was no sign of pancreatits and they sent me home with pain killers.
Avatar f tn At first I thought it was an ingrown hair, but it became swollen, red, painful, and hot to the touch. I also had painfully large swollen glands under both arms (first on the side of the breast lump). I also had a slight fever. My doctor put me on an antibiotic, which seemed to help in terms of the fever and the glands, as well as the swelling in the breast.
Avatar m tn They never completely went they just shrunk to about 4mm across, but a couple of days they became quite big. Swollen on my left side of my neck, 3 under my chin and under both armpits it hurts to turn my neck shallow and I can't put my arms flush to my side because of the glands in my armpits hurt so much. Over half a year since I first noticed them.
Avatar f tn i woke up yesterday morning with swollen lymph nodes under my chin on both sides of of face and one on the right side of the groin. pain under my ywo arms but nodes not being swollem. i woke up this morning and there are two boils or abscess on the upper part of my jaw on each side. i dont have fever or anything else going on. i may be paranoid, mental or whatever u may call it but things are real and its scaring me half to death.
Avatar f tn I dont know what it could be. My history is that I had boils under my arms and under my arm. they kind of resemble that but I dont know if they are, any help?
Avatar n tn Now, the discoloration is on my left areola too (just beginning on the outside of left breast around nipple on areola). I also have swollen glands in my neck and under both arms in my armpits. Could my symptoms be a deep abscess? I have no pain, and no redness. The ultrasound also found about four lumps in my other side (left) too. Could this be infection spreading? I just want to know if it possibly sounds like those possiblitlites according to my symptoms/signs.
Avatar m tn hi im 20 years old and have been off work for 5 days recently and have just recovered from tonsilitis, and yesterday i developed 4/5 lumps under each armpit which are sore when i move my arms and to touch . obviously nowadays u dont know wats going around and u got to be quite careful and i just get worried because my friend developed lymph cancer nearly 2 years agoand has only just finished his treatment.
Avatar f tn I get these pimples, in my under arms or crotch area. They are very painfull and often abscess. I am soaking in hot epsom salt baths 3-4 times a day. I am 51 yrs. old! Why is this happening?
Avatar f tn My daughter has huge boils forming under her arms and was told this is a fungus in her bloodstream. Is there a name for this and how couyld she have contracted it?
Avatar f tn I shaved under my arms with a battery operated razor, now Its painful and there are dark bumps and some white stuff that looks like there is pus in it. What can I do?
251991 tn?1239299630 My husband has had this spot on his chest going on three years, he will never go see a doctor and now says his lymp nodes under his arms hurt. I have pictures if any one would like to look and beable to help.
Avatar m tn For the past couple days I have had slightly painful palpable lymph nodes in my armpits and arms, and directly above my groin on both sides. I do have a healing abscess on my upper left leg. I did not experience any ARS symptoms that I can recall, but I read that swollen lymph nodes in multiple places are a good indicator of hiv infection. I'm going crazy with worry. Please help.
Avatar f tn i came down with an infection on a peritonsillat abscess which compromised my white blodd cell count to nearly 9000 and was eventually hospitalized to get condition and pain from abscess under control. now home i feel tingling and noticed one small vaginal lesion, obviously my hpv. this would be my 2nd outbreak ever so i dont know what to expect. it is not near as bad as the first one which was 2 months ago. I also have been getting bug bite looking sores on my arms, legs , and face.
Avatar m tn Since you say that your chinchilla is damp and has matting under the chin, I highly recommend that you seek out some professional help. They can give him a physical exam to make sure that he doesn't have anything obstructed in his mouth, have teeth issues, or other underlying health problems. A chinchilla with a tooth abscess can be in so much misery that he may rub away his fur near his mouth and also on the arms.

Avatar f tn Previously I used to get them under my arms and inner thighs. I had Shingles in April of 2010 and took Valtrex. I never had another abscess in those areas, and no where else until May of this year. I know it is rare, but what are the chances a virus is causing these and that is why they are not reacting to extreme antibiotics?
Avatar n tn i have it under my arms and groin and under my breasts, its embarassing and it never seems to get better as a matter of fact it seems to be spreading more and more each year randomly showing up on my stomach
