Bumps under armpit

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under armpit


Avatar f tn I have a rash on both my arms (the part that touches the armpit) that has been evolving for several weeks. Early on, it was large bumps (1-1.5cm x .5cm) on the armpit itself, now it is small bumps on the skin that surrounds the armpit. On the right arm it's about 3.5cm (from the start of armpit up the arm) and about 1.5 cm (on the perimeter of the armpit only on the right side)They have always been reddish, and itchy. I also have a patch of the rash on my chin, under my lower lip.
Avatar n tn My right armpit is fine. Can anyone tell me why these bumps are under my armpit and why its getting worst? And what i can use to heal it?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn First off I'm a 32 male. For a few years now I've gotten bumps under my armpits that are red and painful. I always thought it was from shaving but recently I have gotten them and don't shave anymore. I switched from old spice deodorant to an all natural deodorant, native, after I was getting a small rash and itching. Now I have a bigger rash under my left armpit but my right armpit is fine. Can this be from deodorant? Laundry detergent? I don't sweat all that much.
Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar n tn I noticed a few days ago after shaving that I had a bump under my arm. 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?
Avatar f tn A few days ago I got an itchy red bump under my right armpit and within days the right armpit and upper under arm has several red itchy bumps and the left armpit is also developing a few (not like the right). I have been putting Neosporine and Cortizone cream on it but it does not seem to be getting much better. Any ideas? I am unable to see a doctor for financial reasons at this time. Thank you!
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn Hi, So I currently have a bunch of little bumps under my armpits. They are pea-sized or smaller and there are probably 4-6 under each armpit. I am guessing these may be lymph nodes, but I have been able to feel them there for a fairly long time. I use to have sebaceous cysts so I took accutane a few years ago and that cleared up most of my cysts and acne, but I now get cysts on the right side of my neck. I have 2 right now that are probably 3-5cm and movable, but painless.

Avatar n tn I have skin colored bumps under my left armpit only in an outline of the backside of the armpit to directly underneath. It has not spread and i was on Follical medicene but that did nothing to clear up the rash. The bumps if squeezed are almost pimple like at times and at other times not? I know i should see a Dermo but i don't have insurance right now so i'm looking for any possible suggestions on what this could be thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn It been 2 day with bumps under my right armpits. They hurt when I move my arm, I even try to put aloe vera gel on it. Its started to burn and dry up! I'm real concern about it. Is it a fungal infection? What over the counter medicine can I use?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have a soft lump under my left armpit only. I have these raised, itchy red bumps around the lower back of my spine and left waistline. I was treated for scabies by my physician, and changed my bedding, etc. but it did not go away. I am also very itchy around my groin area, but not my sexual organs. This has been going on for about 3 months now.

610184 tn?1225612790 I have these tender sore bumps under both my armpits. it startedd only on my right underarm but moved to the left as well. It looks like pimples, but not puss or white head it is just red and sore. I have tried switching detorants but that didn't do anything, I am mostly wondering what it is and how I can make the bumps go away.
Avatar m tn 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?
470885 tn?1326329037 I have a very similar problem. I have a bunch of pimples under my armpit. My doctor said it could be an hair follicle infection. I was then prescribed oral medicine for it. You should ask your doctor if you have an hair follicle infection. I do not recall the name of the medication but it started with "mono" something.
Avatar n tn how long has it been hurting under your arm? is it central armpit? because breast pain isnt normally in ur armpit because the lymph nodes are usually only on the edge of the armpit and if it was a breast related problem that was giving u armpit pain then ur lymph nodes would probably be swollen. has ur actual breast been hurting? if it has regularly, then go back to the docs and say your still worried.
