Swollen lymph nodes in both armpits. One red and one not. What does it mean if the red one is more sensitive?

In brief: Probable infection

Tender, swollen red lymph nodes usually indicate an infection.
Under the arm may be due to an infected hair follicle. See a doctor to determine if antibiotics might be required.
