Sore Under My Armpit
I have a open sore under my armpit, it's been bleeding and oozing puss. I have been putting neosporin & covering it with a bandaid, what else can I do?
Lymph node: More than likely you have an acute infection somewhere on the upper extremity that is seeding a lymph node in your arm pit. The lymph node filters the bacteria, virus or fungus and then reacts as "killer cells" come to attack the agent. The lymph node responds by growing, producing more cells, and can get tender due to the agents and chemicals released. You may need antibiotics or see pcp. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. Read more
Any swelling: If there's swelling, it could be a lymph node, a sign that the body is fighting an infection, or more rarely cancer. If the node is warm/hot, tender and red, it is more likely to be infection; if very hard, non-mobile, more likely cancer. See your primary care provider to have it checked. Read more

Muscle soreness: If the soreness seems to be below the skin (in the muscles), there are a few things to consider, including exercise-associated muscle breakdown (which can be normal and goes away on its own). If she has been ill recently, there can sometimes be muscle breakdown associated with infection. In unusual cases, inherited disorders are associated. Consider seeing your pediatrician for an examination. Read more
