Dear mowgli: Burning pain is often associated with damage or irritation to a nerve. Sometimes the area of nerve irritation may not be where the pain is felt. Radiation therapy will sometimes initially cause some swelling of the tissue which may be contributing to the nerve irritation. Nerve pain can take a long time to resolve. Many standard pain medicines may not be helpful. You might discuss the pain with your doctor who may be able to prescribe medications that may be more effective for nerve type pain, if needed.
Thank you very much for your answer which put it into simple nd direct terms. Mowgli
I recently had a Mastectomy and also suffered from burning under my arm really bad even my sleeve hurt. I started to use Baby Corn Starch powder and it was like a miracle the way the burning stopped. I still use it when I need it. During the opeastion I had some Lumph Nodes removed and this was the sorce of my pain. I hope this helps you. Good luck.
I had an inflamation of a lymphnode under my armpit I saw a breast surgeon who would not remove it cause it was inflamatory but it sure damage something under my arm cause I been havind that burning sensation you guys are talking about , I been dealing with this since April, the lymphnode was 2.7cm x 1.9cm big and now it disappear but I still in pain after all kind of meds...Im glad I keep reading this forum.... cause all they tell me is that the pain I have is because I had a "huge inflamation" and that it will go back to normal eventually!
