Both armpit glands are swollen w/ a scratchy throat and runny nose. Can it just be a virus? My armpit glands have never been sore and swollen.

Most viral infections are taken care of by our immune system in due course.

I found a small sensitive red bump under my armpit and I thought it was a pimple but now there is a second one and my gland is swollen/sensitive?
Exam: Good question! often it is difficult for a patient to know the difference between a suspicious mass in the axilla (armpit) and an obstructed or infected sweat gland or hair follicle.

Separate problems. : The rash on the intertriginous areas are due to irritation and rubbing depending on your size and condition such as diabetes and sweating which can cause fungal infection.
