Lump under Both Armpits

I woke up a couple Days ago with a half-acorn sized lump under each armpit. It is red and hurts a little more today.
I am 29 years old so I was kinda ruling out growing pains or such. Is it a possible Glandular infection or maybe
something else. I am worried as I don't have any Medical Coverage currently. I was wondering what some things
this condition might be ? Please help ?

Hello,
This kind of lump can be a boil, sebaceous cyst or a swollen lymph node. Apply warm compresses on the bumps and keep the area clean. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. If it is a sebaceous cyst then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required. If it is a swollen lymph node then FNAC of the node may be required.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
