Lumps in armpits

I experience constant uprising of lumps in my arm pits. As soon as 1 goes the other sets in. They contain pus and it hurts when i stretch my arms up. I never considered it a major problem to go to a doctor for it but just want to know the reason for them.

Hi. Greetings. You possibly have recurrent furuncles or hidradenitis suppurativa. Please do consider visiting a qualified dermatologist near you at the earliest since you'll need oral antibiotics under prescription after adequate evaluation. If the furuncles are recurrent despite that, you may need a decolonisation regime . hope this helps, warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Roots hair and skin clinic, Bangalore .
