A few weeks ago my armpit started getting hard, red lumps that sometimes are filled with puss. I switched my deodorant/razor and it didn't change?

In brief: Dermatology Consult

It sounds like you need to see a Dermatologist.
A Dermatologist will examine the area and see if you have folliculitis, an inflammation of the hair follicles, or furuncles, larger skin abscesses. He or she will probably ask you to take a break from shaving the area. Another possibility is Hidradenitis suppurativa, but your Dermatologist will be the best person to help you with this problem.
