greetings doctor,u003cbr /u003e in medical terms there is such a thing as awareness, right? I was once taught by a friend of mine who is a medical student. if I am not mistaken, this is done after a woman has finished her menstrual period. When I realize this, I will check the armpit area as well as I remember, this aims to check whether there is a change or growth in something that was not there before. u003cbr /u003e the last 3 months after my period I had a red lump like a pimple in my armpit. it hurts if i press it. actually what is it? Isn’t that dangerous?u003cbr /u003please explain, doctor. Thank you

Hello Aeni,

Thank you for asking There are various causes of armpit lumps, including:

Folliculitis (inflammation of the hair glands), a more severe form can be an abscess (collection of pus), also due to an armpit wound

Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes)

·         Skin infection, caused by bacteria or fungi

·        contact dermatitis / allergic reaction to an irritant substance, for example deodorant

lipoma (excess fat growth)

·        cysts (collection of fluid) of hair or sweat glands, for example due to frequent pulling of armpit hairs


Other tumors, both benign and malignant

To find out for sure whether you have one of the conditions above, more complete information is needed about your complaint and seeing the lump directly in addition to other examinations, therefore it is recommended that you see a doctor. If necessary, the doctor can suggest supporting examinations such as blood checks, ultrasound lumps, biopsies, CT scans. Treatment will be adjusted according to the doctor's findings, such as administering antibiotic cream if it is proven that there is a bacterial infection, for an abscess an incision and drainage of pus can be made, or the procedure for removing a lump in a cyst.

Some other suggestions for you:

·        Avoid the habit of plucking armpit hairs because of irritation and inflammation of the root canals

·         if it looks inflamed, you can compress it with warm water

·        Avoid pressing/squeezing the bumps

·        Keep the bumps and armpits clean, do scrubbing at least 1 time per week, to remove dead skin

·        Use deodorant for sensitive skin, avoid using deodorant for at least 2 hours after removing armpit hair

·         If you have pain, take pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen

·         consume nutritious food and enough water (minimum 6-8 glasses per day)
