Why Do I Have Pimples On My Armpits
Hygiene: There are many sweat glands and hair on the armpit. Sometimes, dead skin and dirt can clog the pore of the skin around the hair/sweat glands and infection can happen in the form of small pimple. A good personal hygiene will help. Read more
I have about seven red itchy sore pimples on my armpits and now starting to hurt from so much scratching, sometimes a clear liquid comes out what is it?
Allergy to cosmetics: My first thought is that you developed allergic contact dermatitis to y our deodorant (very common). Stop using what ever you are currently using and temporarily use corn starch. If this solves the problem, then buy a hypoallergenic deodorant fro clinique or almay. If no better, see a dermatologist or allergist/immunologist. Read more
Several things: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively. Read more
Hot compresses: Hot compresses may bring it to a head, at which time may be able to drain it. If large red, hot area spreads around it, then it may become a cellulitis, a spreading infection in the skin. This requires an antibiotic to treat. Or is if becomes quite large, it may develop into an abscess, which the doctor may have to incise and drain. Read more
Yes: I forgot to say an important detail. My daughter is 11 months old. I ended up taking her to the pediatrician and they referred me to the dermatologist for her.

Sounds awful!: An infected pimple that is hurting so much that you really cannot move your arm needs to be checked by a doctor. This may need to be drained, and you may need to have antibiotics. Please don't wait on this, though, because it really can get worse. Good luck. Lgromkomd. Read more
