It sounds as though you may have a skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. If the infection is not getting better after drainage, then you may need antibiotics and should call your regular doctor.
Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should go to the doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately.
You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...Read more

Lump under your arm: Is most likely an infected sebaceous cyst or an abscess. It has ruptured and may heal on its own if you keep it very clean. Unfortunately, with the rising prevalence of MRSA (Methicillin resistant Strep aurea), you may need antibiotics, and/or further opening by a physician. I suggest that you have this evaluated at an Urgent Care center. ...Read more

Lymphadenopathy: The doctor examining you is in the best position to make these decisions.

Not normal: Clearly, you shouldn't have multiple persistent lumps in your armpit. If there's pus, there's almost always infection that should be treated.

Surgical excision: Most small lumps in the armpit, particularly if superficial, are sebaceous cysts due to a damaged hair follicle.

The most important thing is to have the lump examined by a qualified health care professional to make sure that it is indeed most likely a sebaceous cyst and not something of more concern. ...Read more
