large vein under right underarm with a pulling sensation

I am 35 male about 200lb and I noticed a large vein under my right underarm. I cannot totally stretch the arm without some pulling restriction. I visited my doctor and he told me to place a warm compress on it. However, he told me if I experience any coolness and numbness to come back immediately. I currently do not have those symptoms.

The large vein occurred shortly after experiencing a rash under my arm. I believe I had an allergic reaction to something which led to a rash that went away but formed a large vein under my arms.  I am concern because the vein doesn't seem to be healing.  It's been 3 days and nothing has changed. I still get a pulling pinching sensation when I stretch,  My question: should I be concerned? What is going on?

Regards,
Bob

Hi Bob,

Have you gotten any further in diagnosis of your problem or have you gotten better?  I'm experiencing exactly the same symptoms as you have. (Although  I'm 40 years old, female, and otherwise healthy as far as I know).

I went to the doctor, last Thursday, because I felt a painful lump in my right armpit.  To back track, I had been diagnosed at another time with an infected sweat gland or lymph node in my right armpit and was prescribed antibiotic & warm wet compresses were also recommended.  The previous time the antibiotic/compresses worked.  

Now last Thursday, I went back to the doctor because all that previous week again I felt the painful lump (getting bigger & more painful as each day passed) in the same location, and I figured it was the same thing as before.  The doc prescribed antibiotic (Clindamycin HCL 300 MG Caplets, 1 caplet 2X/day) & compresses again. But, I went back to the doctor today because I'm feeling worse instead of better.  I'm now getting the pulling/burning sensation down my arm when I lift it and I feel these two hard vein "things" in my pit next to where the lump is.  Also (and I don't know if this is related are not, because I type alot so may just be coincidence) but I'm also getting "tingles" in my hand & wrist since yesterday.  The doctor felt under my arm and said "I'm not sure if its a boil, but that feels like arterial to me."  He prescribed a different antibiotic, Augmentin 1000mg, and told me if I don't feel better by Monday to give him a call and he'll send me to a specialist for further testing.  Now I'm scared!!

Any info you can share would be appreciated.  Thanks...

Regards,
Andrea

Hi, I'm a 30 year old female and had a sore sensation in my right armpit and thought if was in ingrown.  But a couple of days later I notices this tight elevated, sore vein.  I feel a slight tingling sensation that goes all the way down my arm.  I'm worried that it could be serious.  After reading some of your comments here, can anyone tell me what their final diagnosis is?

Thanks,

Hi I'm 17 year old female and I have the same issue :( i had a red bump on my armpit thinkin it was an ingrown hair so I tried popping it but it only bled a little but it got so swollen and I noticed a swollen vein attached to it. That was yesterday but today it calmed down a bit but you can still see it swelling a little and it hurts when you touch it. I'm so scared. :( I'm gonna get checked.

I have a skin condition called HS it started as a painful lump. Maybe worth having a look into it.
