Bump Under Skin In Armpit
I have two hard bumps under my skin under my armpits. What could they be? I changed soaps recently and use the same deodorant, wore a jacket.
Plugged glands?: Most likely these represent apocrine or sweat glands that have become plugged from you deodorant. If you use an antiperspirant the 'aluminum chlorohydrate' pinches off the gland so that they don't secrete fluid. It backs up and viola you have a bump. Change to deodorant alone. Other concerns would be abscess if you have pain/heat/redness at site or lymph node. If grow/become tender, see a doc. ...Read more

Possible abscess: This is a common location to have an abscess, a local skin infection, which is easily treated by opening it and allowing it to drain, which may hurt briefly, but will release the pressure and there will be less pain afterwards as it drains.. Other causes are possible of course, but that seems most likely. The doctor will sort if out, but it is probably nothing major, depending on your BF's health, ...Read more

Without pic ???: The most common cause of a localized ("beside my armpit" "thighs") is skin contact with an irritant or something to which you are allergic. Review all topical products: deodorant, lotion, soap, etc. Unless there is redness/swelling/possible drainage, it is likely not an infection.Two sites:not shingles.OK to try OTC topical cortisone cream/ointment to see if helps. May need exam by your provider. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
