Armpit pain: Could be several things. Skin irritation from anti-perspirants or infection, pain from enlarged nodes or other. Try stopping underarm deoderants and check for rash. If it continues call your doctor for an examination to determine the cause.

See docotor: Without an exam it is impossible to tell. You could have an infection of the glands in your armpit, an allergic reaction, or inflammation of nerves. Any of these conditions could get worse and are best treated professionally.
