In brief: Maybe

These are common.
If you are having large or painful lesions, or very frequent problems with this, consider seeing your pcp. If you have small bumps that come and resolve on their own, medical attention may not be necessary.

In brief: Oral Antibiotics

Pimples under the arms can be folliculitis which can be caused by a bacterial infection.
Thus, you may need oral antibiotics to control this condition.
