Had SLAP tear repair surgery. Do I have cystic acne?

Hi I had a SLAP tear repair surgery 12 days ago. No complications, but my armpit that is in the sling has two painful pea sized lumps in it. Obviously, seein them is difficult, but I ve been cleaning the area twice daily. It feels very painful, like cystic acne . What are they and should I see my orthopedic surgeon about this?

Hi the two painful lumps in the armpit cannot be cystic acne.i think it is only due to moister produced by sling in the armpits.these lesions are called folliculitis.
These are treated with absorb dusting powder in the morning.and t-bact in the night .oral broad spectrum antibiotic should be used
