23 F. I have 2 sores under each arm pit after shaving but it's been three (3) days since shaving and there still there, what are they?? what I can do?

Could be infected: Hair follicles, called folliculitis, that could lead to a skin abscess. Be careful of shaving in these areas and if you have access to healthcare facilities, you may get a MRSA infection. If they enlarge or do not go away after 2-3 days, you need to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

I have noticed 3 small open sores in my arm pit. They are a little bit sore and have bled and pussed a little what could they be?

Lot's there: That area has a lot of things in it including arteries, veins, lymph nodes, etc. The skin however has a lot of sweat glands that have a risk of infection. Also, the many hair follicles there can also get infected. You need to be careful about keeping that area clean, minimize deodorant use as it can clog the pores. Right now, an antibiotic is probably needed, see a doc. ...Read more

Is it bad to cut your forearms?

Is it bad to cut your forearms?

Yes: The biggest issue with self cutting is why are you doing it. The cutting itself can cause scarring, infection and blood loss. If you hit a major vein or artery you could cause serious harm. Most people who self cut are trying to feel something different than what's truly causing them pain. Trying to substitute one pain for another is not a healthy thing. Seek medical/psychiatric help immediately. ...Read more
