Warm compress: Apply warm compresses 3 to 4 times a day and it will come to a head and open up on its own or you may have to see a medical practitioner to have it drained. If it comes very often,avoid shaving your armpit and make sure you are not reacting to your deodorant. If no relief see a surgeon./dermatologist
