Reddish Armpit Until Sore And Bumps Festering?
Good morning … when my armpit was ever irritated … the irritation was reddish and sore because when I was busy I couldn’t get treatment and I just sprinkled powder on my armpit … but healed right away when he was cured he had lots of bumps when I pushed out pus … I thought I was going to get rid of my armpits again … accidentally yesterday afternoon I saw my sister’s armpit, it turned out that there was still a festering lump but it said it didn’t hurt … that’s how I believed the medicine was done … thanks
