Armpit pimples?
I started getting these weird bumps in my armpit. It started in one armpit and
like jumped to the other but they look like pimples because
they had white pus on the top and if you squeezed it.it would pop
like a regular pimple but after it pops these weird bumps stay
there and they don't go away and they're like really sore and senstive i can
hardly put my arms down anymore.
i don't really care what it is i just want someone to tell me how to make it go
away so i don't have to go to the doctor like "Can you look in my armpit?"

Hello,
From the symptoms it can be folliculitis or boils. Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph).

Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics and do not pop the pimples. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics or incision and drainage may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
