Armpit Lumps
I get recurring lumps in my armpit. The lumps are sized bigger than a kidney bean (like a grape) and is hard and painful! The lumps occur on both sides. The lumps stays on for 2 weeks and then subsides. One lump in right side formed pus and is leaking pus for over 2 months. Have taken 2 courses of Augmentin 625 mg but lumps are still there! None of the other lumps have formed pus.
