Had a infected sweat gland drained 2 weeks ago now I have a cord sticking out from underarm where the sweat gland was. Very painful to lift arm?

Keep follow up. Hi Logan, Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. Sounds like you had an abscess drained and possibly your doctors packed the wound to allow it to continue to drain?
