Thank you for the question.
Armpits are parts of the body that have many structus in them, ranging from lymph nodes, sweat glands, oil glands, or hair follicles, and the function of these structures in the armpit is greatly affected by activities, such as friction, high activity that triggers sweat, shaving activity, etc. The appearance of a lump in the armpit that hurts can be caused by several things, such as:
Lymphadenopathy, which is an enlarged lymph node caused by an infection in the body. Try to identify if you have other symptoms, such as a cold cough. Lymphadenitis, which is an infection of the lymph nodes. Hidradenitis suppurativa, which is a clogged sweat gland infection. Furuncle or boil, which is an infection of blocked hair follicles. FAM or fibroadenoma, which is a benign tumor in the breast, which is usually characterized by a lump in the breast as well. You should identify whether you have other symptoms such as coughing colds, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, pain when urinating, etc., because if you have other symptoms or illnesses, bumps on the armpits can be a reaction to other diseases in your body and can disappear along with healing from the disease. In addition, you can visit a dermatologist. Your doctor will evaluate your complaint, conduct a physical examination, and conduct a supporting examination if needed such as a blood test if needed so that the doctor can handle according to the cause of your complaint such as antibiotics if it leads to a bacterial infection that must be prescribed based on a doctor's prescription.
Meanwhile, you can continue a healthy lifestyle such as fulfilling healthy and nutritious nutritional needs, drinking at least 2 liters of water per day. You can apply warm compresses to the lump to relieve pain, and take pain medications such as paracetamol which can be purchased freely.
Hopefully this information can help you
