I have these tender sore bumps under both my armpits. it startedd only on my right underarm but moved to the left as well. It looks like pimples, but not puss or white head it is just red and sore. I have tried switching detorants but that didn't do anything, I am mostly wondering what it is and how I can make the bumps go away.
Could be hydradenitis (sometimes spelled Hidradenitis). If so, hot compresses might help but for me tetracycline and shots/drainage in a dermatologists office were the only things that have worked. I hope you don't have it. Good luck.
