Without examining you, it's difficult to say exactly what it is.
There are many common things that a hard, red lump in the armpit skin could be such as:
- inflammed lymph node
- ingrown hair
- sebaceous cyst
- abscess or boil (infection)
- folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle)
if it is painful, enlarging, or if you are suddenly noticing more, give your doctor a call. You should start with your pcp first since they treat a wide variety of problems and you are more likely to be able to see them sooner than a gynecologist or dermatologist. Odds are, they'll be able to treat you. If they think you should see a specialist, they'll let you know. ...Read more
