I keep getting painful lumps under my arms. Some stuff will come out, but after healing it become a hard knot and never goes away. What could it be?

In brief: Cysts
It sounds like you have hidradenitis suppurativa, a chronic condition that requires medical treatment to minimize scarring, and surgery.
There are treatments that can help, definitely talk with your physician, or a dermatologist.
