I got the Depo-Provera shot yesterday, my arm is realy sore and burnng at injection site also a hard lump under the skin around injection site. Is this normal?
Yes: Sorry that happened. The symptoms you are describing though are normal. It's possible that a small blood vessel broke under the skin, or that your muscle is just cramping up around the area where the shot occurred. A little bit of time and it will be gone. In the meantime, for the pain, try some ibuprofen, 600mg. ...Read more
Could a lump under the skin of my armpit be caused by ear infection? I wore a earing for too long my ear is now blue or is it cancer? I get chills too
No: Any pathology in the ear even by an earing would show up as a nodal problem in the upper neck region. The armpit drains the arm and chest wall on the side of the armpit. If the ear is turning blue that is from decreased blood supply secondary to an infection resulting from the ear piercing. Warm soaks and antibiotics may help. ...Read more

NotalgiaParesthetica: What you describe sounds like "notalgia paresthetica". It is usually caused by irritation of nerve roots as they exit the spine.

I am getting blood spots under the skin on only my left arm. They appear suddenly and fade away in about 10 days. What causes them?
Doctor can evaluate: Blood spots on the skin are called petechiae (purpura if they are bigger splotches), and are due to blood cells leaking out of the tiny blood vessels in the skin. After the blood cells have leaked out, the area behaves just like a bruise (the body breaks down the blood cells into different colored pigments, and carries them away over a week). The Dr. Wants to find out why blood cells were leaking. ...Read more

Possible abscess: This is a common location to have an abscess, a local skin infection, which is easily treated by opening it and allowing it to drain, which may hurt briefly, but will release the pressure and there will be less pain afterwards as it drains. Other causes are possible of course, but that seems most likely. The doctor will sort if out, but it is probably nothing major, depending on your BF's health, ...Read more

Painless lump under the skin of my armpit. I can feel it on the surface of the skin. It bleeds when I poked a hole. Looks like regular skin but darker?
Lump in armpit: If you shave or wax there, it may be an ingrown hair that has caused a small collection of oil/skin that you can feel, like a pimple. It is common in that location. Try soaking it for 20 minutes or so, a couple times a day, to see if it comes to a head so you can get it to open up and drain. If it is red, tender, a doctor can open it for you. ...Read more

I have this armpit ball under the skin, it's just like a squishy, soft ball and on the surface it's red, and some kind of liquid pours out.
Sebaceous cyst: We have glands/cysts all over our body to produce oils & sweat as appropriate. Sometimes they get clogged up and can't release their contents. They can become inflamed & infected, leading to pain. Depending upon circumstance, sometimes this gland/cyst ruptures and its contents spill out. Try warm compresses to bring everything to a head. If it drains on own, you're good. If getting worse, see doc ...Read more

Hello I am 21 years old and I have a small lump on my armpit deep under the skin it is moveable & doesn't hurt & causing no other problems what is it?
Could be......: Could be several things, but it's time to get it checked. A woman's arm pit has a lot of stuff in it: major blood vessels, nerves, lymph nodes, tendons, hair follicles, and breast tissue (yep, breast tissue). So, if you've got a painless lump there, it's a good idea to have a doctor take a look, do an exam, and decide what to do to see what it is. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes, & other things: Armpit (axilla) lump under the skin could be a clogged sweat gland; also could be a lymph node enlarged due to infection in area that it drains, such as any part of the upper extremity down to the fingernail; of course those nodes also drain the breast and chest wall in the area, which could be from infection or cancer. Lymphoma would be also very serious. If it's two months, time to see your pcp. ...Read more

I've been itchy for over a week in armpit kept scratching now I have a bump under the skin. Not painful also have possible ibs use colpermin?
A few thoughts: Colpermin usually doesn't cause itching but because it's a natural substance, it's hard to say for sure because those compounds are not as regulated as prescription medications. You could try not taking it for a few daysto see if it helps your symptoms. Try not to scratch as this can cause irritation to your skin. Possibly the bump under the skin is a cyst that formed as a result of the scratching ...Read more
