Armpit: If your pain hasn't resolved, there are a few tests that can be considered. One is an ultrasound of the armpit to look for fluid collections or enlarged lymph nodes.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination, however, it does not appear to be a serious issue. You may watch and wait. If the lesion gets bitter, it ulcerates, or discharge develops or more lesions appear, see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Skin color changes: Hi Rachel229
Skin discoloration can happen after superficial bleeding caused by trauma, but it can also result from allergic responses (most common under your eyes) or from some forms of skin cancer (check with a practitioner if it persists) or some infections. So...maybe not a bruise, and I would suggest seeing your own practitioner. ...Read more

I've noticed red-ish bruises on my inner thighs and armpits but there's no pain. Recently started taking Seroquel (quetiapine). Should I be concerned?

I've noticed red-ish bruises on my inner thighs and armpits but there's no pain. Recently started taking Seroquel (quetiapine). Should I be concerned?

May be: Allergic reaction to any medicine usually causes Itchy skin rash all over the body, or spreads every where. However Groin and Axilla are warm and Moist area. Some times Infection starts here. E.g. Fungal infection=Yeast, or if you shave and use Anti antiperspirant in Axilla then bacterial infection is possibility.
Hope this helps, There is no substitute of contacting your treating Doctor. ...Read more

I have an infection under my armpit that is very swollen, lumpy and red all around it. Along the hard swollen area is bruising. Any ideas?

Hidradenitis?: Likely skin abscess, perhaps complicated by spread of infection into an axillary (armpit) lymph node. If a chronic, ongoing problem, maybe hidradenitis suppurativa, an inflammatory problem not directly due to infection, although infection can complicate HA. Other possibilities as well. You need to see a doctor right away for diagnosis and probable antibiotic prescription. Good luck! ...Read more
