small bump under armpit
Hi there

I hope I am speaking to the right person, I am female, 21, good shape. About a week ago I felt itching under my left armpit but it was also soar, so I felt a small bump under my armpit, this morning when I woke up I felt another small bump, also soar under my right armpit. What could this be, do you think it is a gland infection or something worse?

Looking forward to hearing from you

It sounds like a boil or an infected hair follicle.
