Small Bumps Appear In The Armpits?
Hello, I want to ask .. When I touched, I felt like there were small stones / gravel, what was that? Small really … Then if you want to know whether there is cancer / tumor, check with what specialist doctors? What does the surgeon do?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Small lumps in the armpit may come from the enlargement of the structure of the skin and supporting tissues. Various factors can cause this condition, for example skin tags, milia, prickly heat, warts, tinea corporis (fungus), acne, folliculitis, scabies (scabies), cyst pilaris, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, and so on. Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. Some do not even require special management as long as the size does not enlarge and does not cause complaints. However, for some reasons, if treatment is not given right away, then the lump has the potential to spread or even spread to other people around you.
Apart from a lump that comes from the skin, it may also be a lump in your armpit that arises because of enlarged lymph nodes, or other structures around it.
To be sure, you try to check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Mild conditions are often enough for doctors to treat with topical medication, for example in the form of ointments, powders, or special creams. At this time, you can do it first:
Take a clean and regular bath with antiseptic soap
Clean your armpits when bathing, then dry too afterwards
Avoid using powder or deodorant that contains irritating ingredients
Avoid using clothes that are too tight and made from heat
Do not squeeze or forcibly remove lumps that appear
Don't exchange personal items, including towels, soap, clothes, with other people
Do not carelessly treat lumps before going to a doctor
Hope this helps ...
