If anything of these things may apply, then stopping the offending product should help things calm down. If not, get seen by a doc who can sort if out or refer you to the appropriate specialist.

My son had a cyst undet his arm and he compressed it with warm to hot pressure, n it just popped n he gushed out blood, what does that indicate?

Abscess: What is sounds like he had was an abscess, which is a confined cavity filled with infected material, blood and pus. A warm compress often helps it come to a head and drain, after which it will likely heal. If it does not, see your doctor. Try not to squeeze these things; instead of rupturing outward, as your son's did, they can rupture inward, thus inadvertently spreading infection.

Yeast in your armpit: Is not a common area for infection unless you have predisposing problems such as hidradenitis suppurtiva. But if its a superficial infection, most over the counter antifungals will work for you. If its more refractory, you will have to see your local physician for further treatment.
