Armpit Boils

A big boil full of pus has grown in armpit. The pus needs to be removed. This is the second time this is happening. Happened last month in other armpit which burst opened itself. Should I consult a general surgeon or a dermatologist?

Hi This is an infection of hair follicle called Furuncle. Please consult a dermatologist for further management. Keep your armpits dry and avoid tight clothing. Take care. Regards Dr Vijay Adhe, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune. www.eternisclinic.com
