It sounds like you have a cyst. Often antiperspirants and deodorants will block the glands that sweat. We all sweat and need to sweat to live. Unfotunately, if you block the gland it will build up inside. One of the most common brands that cause it is Mitchum. Try switching brands until you find one that doesnt cause cysts. They can get very painful and if let go too long need lancing.
so in other words, its nothing bad you think?.. because i know swollen lymphs are related to many things and i am worried it could be that! i know i would need to see a doctor to find out for sure but how would i know what it is and if i should worry? and thanx for your comment.
The fact that it went away when u changed deodorant suggests that it is clogged glands. I had them and went to dr because it freaked me out and was very painful. They swell and press on nerves and do get infected. The lymph glands get rid of infection so you may feel them working on the problem. The dr told me to switch deodorant and don't be afraid to sweat sometimes.
ok but, it didt go away when i changed deodorant. it went away by me not using the deodorant. well the first two did. the third bump i got just came up without using the deodorant for about a week and a half. sounds kinda nasty that i didnt use non but i kept myself clean so dont worry.lol. anyways, how would i know if its the deodorant or not, or should i say, how do i know if it is a cyst or not. could a be an absess? and if a fourth bump rose after this one goes away, should i be concerned? sorry for so many questions but as you can tell i am really concerned. thanx for your help too!!!
They can abscess. You may be a little more sensitive to the deodorant. I would try using something for sensitive skin and not so harsh or not geared toward athletics. Try the regular not "heavy duty" or "extreme". When you are going to be home, wash it off and give the ole pits a break, when you can. I am down to only one brand I can use, maybe it might work for you. Secret unscented. Yes, it's a womens deodorant, but like the commercial says-strong enough for a man.
thanx for the help. but my question is, how do i know if it is really a cyst?. and when should they go away because if had already 4. One will pop up and go away then another one shows up. this has happend 4 times but neither bump has stayed for more than a week. and the last one i got was the least painful and the smallest. are you sure they are not swollen lymphs? can u describe a lymph and a cyst?
