I have several painful lumps in my armpit, that almost feel swollen. I have recently had a middle ear infection and have been taking 875mg amoxicillin. It started out with one small one, and spread to a lot of my armpit.. they almost seem to connect at points. They are under the skin, and have been there for 2 1/2 days. What's going on with my armpit?
You either have swollen galnds or infected cysts. Neither is serious, but you need to show your doctor, to find out if you need a different antibiotic to cover staph germs or not (amoxicillin doesn't.)
I also have that too. But I only have one lump. It has been there for 4 days nw and its increasing in sizeo and im getting worried. I didn't tell my parents yet. Its the fear of finding cancer of such sort. PLease help.
I had the same lymp node increases on my neck and they can also be under the armpits and above the left and right side of the growing. I turned out to have Hodgkens (Cancer). If this does not go away in 3 weeks. Get it checked out. this could mean a whole different stage of treatment. YOU CAN NEVER BE TO SAFE!
i used to get those kind of lumps in my armpits. they're so painful!then i stopped using deodorant. sounds gross, but i've been using one of those mineral salt crystals, which works great. it doesn't stop the sweat, but it stops the smell very well. and i haven't had a lump since.
I too have had lumps occasionally in my armpits. Luckily mine were from wearing too much deoderant too often. Never wear it to bed. I do my house work before my afternoon shower, so I sweat a lot and that also helps to clear out the pores. Wash your armpits before bed and try to get a good sweat going during the day or even a couple times a week and that should help. Works for me!
i always get them. they are painful and occur one after the other. they can stay for up to a week or even longer. what should i do. i have my yearly physical in two days and i am planning on telling my doctor.
