What causes my underarm to be painful? I do not know if it's a pimple but it's sort of a small lump but it's hard to explain. Help please.
Likely a boil...: I suspect you have a boil under your arm (it is like a giant zit). Under the hair (hair follicle) an abscess/infection can form and as it enlarges, it causes that sore lump. It can be quite painful. I would recommend talking to your parents (as you are only 16?) about it so that they can call your doctor to have it checked out and treated. Good luck. ...Read moreGet help now ›

Have a small round lump under my right armpit and hurts regardless if i touch it or not? What is it? Will it heal on its own? Its been there 2 days
Many possibilities: While i recommend that you see a doc to be checked, sometimes the glands in our armpits can become irritated, inflamed and/or infected. Sometimes we use antibiotics, warm compresses and sometimes you need to have them lanced. For definite treatment however your doc needs to see what he is dealing with. Good luck. ...Read moreGet help now ›
19 yr female.Painful, small, lump under the surface of the skin in armpit. Has been recurring. Lasts for a little over a week, comes every couple mont?
Possible staph: Many causes of painful inflammatory conditions of the intertriginous zones of the body (e.g. skin folds). One major cause is recurrent colonization with staph (bacteria) due in part to the local environment which is ideal for bacterial growth.

Hi all, i noticed a lump under my left armpit about a week ago. It was small at first but has now grown to about 2-3cm and realy painful.
Abcess.: Sounds like you have a small abcess. Pain may be relieved by incision although it is by no means necessary. May use hot compresses several times a day until this "points" and ruptures on its own. The fact that pain is bad indicates that may be soon. It is remotely possible that this is a lymph node that has been very stimulated. Same treatment. See someone if not improving. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Small movable lump in armpit that dr says has gone down in size. But I've had it for 3 months. Should I worry? She says she's not worried.
Lymphadenopathy: The doctor examining you is in the best position to make these decisions. Lymph nodes enlarge when they are doing what they are there for, fighting inflammation, and have some characteristics that can only be assessed by examining them. That is what your doctor is trained to do and she should be listened to. Best wishes. ...Read moreGet help now ›
