Surgery: Have these surgically removed. Either a general surgeon or a plastic surgeon can do it. Be sure you keep your weight under control. These cysts are more common in folks overweight.

Excision: If they are small individual cysts, they may easily be excised by your dermatologist. If they are larger and part of a condition called hidradenitis supprativa, the best therapy is to excise the skin of the axilla. A dermatologic surgeon can make the diagnosis and treat you.
