In brief: Surgery
Have these surgically removed.
Either a general surgeon or a plastic surgeon can do it. Be sure you keep your weight under control. These cysts are more common in folks overweight.

In brief: Excision
If they are small individual cysts, they may easily be excised by your dermatologist.
If they are larger and part of a condition called hidradenitis supprativa, the best therapy is to excise the skin of the axilla. A dermatologic surgeon can make the diagnosis and treat you.
