Bumps under the arm

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under the arm


Avatar n tn I have been getting bumps under my arm every time i shave. The bumps are under the skin and hurt when i touch them or move my arm in a certain way they are a litlle smaller then a pea. I've tried to change the razor and change my deoderant, but still everytime i shave one appears and usually disappears in a week. What could this be?
Avatar f tn I woke up this morning with 4-5 superficial sore bumps under my right arm and 1 under my left arm. My husband has them too. What could have caused this?? Really weird. Im guessing some sort of contact dermatitis??? Just odd because that is the only location that either of us have them. Any ideas/suggestions?
Avatar f tn My 9 year old daughter has had these bumps under her arm 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.
Avatar f tn for about four years now I have had these Bumps under my arm 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.
Avatar f tn For the past few months, I have been getting red bumps only under my right arm. They resemble mosquito bites. I thought maybe it had something to do with my razor, so I tried changing the razor and not shaving. The bumps still formed. They do not hurt or itch. I've had cysts or ingrown hairs their before and these are nothing like those. I've even recently noticed bumps as far down as my bra band. Only 2, but still.
Avatar m tn Every time that I donate blood, the next day I have hard, tender nodules under only the arm from which the 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.
Avatar n tn I am a 17 year old female. I have red pimple like bumps under my arm 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.
Avatar m tn Everytime that I give blood, or have blood labs taken, the next day I have hard lumps under only the armpit on the side that the stick was. They are the 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?
Avatar n tn A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the 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.
Avatar n tn Recently one more appeared they are very painful and hurt very badly when I apply deoderent. The bumps are under the skin and dont appear to be my lymp node. What can they possibly be and what can I do about them.
Avatar f tn I've had bumps on my scalp and also under my arm on my side and lower abdomen. This has been going on for almost a year.

Avatar f tn 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. The facial rash isn't itchy, but it has existed for the same duration and I have NEVER had acne.
Avatar f tn then when i feel on it it's like small little bumps are in it , i'm confused cause i don't see the lump when i look at it in the mirror ...please help me to understand what it is .?
Avatar m tn A few days later my child who used deoderant behind me complained of the same problem but it was a bump under the childs arm that felt like a small knot and arm was hurting also. The bump under 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.
Avatar n tn i have had some hpv skin lesions eg wart on eyelid I have just recently broken out in a mass of small raised bumps under both armpits. Is this likely to be hpv? i have had the 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?
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 n tn However the next day, i noticed a few pimples under my right arm. I thought it was just a shaving rash as sometimes i get them. However, as the 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.
Avatar f tn I am unable to wear short sleeve shirts most of the time. The bumps 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.
Avatar f tn I don't have health insurance and cannot afford to see a doctor. The bumps started under one arm and eventually spread to the 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.
Avatar n tn african American I'm 19 years old and I have this dark bump under my arm but under my armpit its itchy also sometimes or when I touched it I guess please help me...
Avatar n tn i need to know how I can get rid of these bumps under the 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?
Avatar n tn After the bus ride I went inside and felt the pain again upon shifting my arm. So I reached under my arm to find a bump about the size of the 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.
Avatar n tn I have this under both my armpits, inner thighs and under both of my breasts. I've had it for about 6 years now. I've been diagnosed and it is something called hidradenitis supprutiva. Not much research has been done on it though. The ones I get under my armpit are the most painful. I've done my own research and have found that bactrin and zinc tend to help the flare ups happen less. I hope this helps!
