Painful underarms after waxing. Advice?

Dear doctor, I am a 30 yr old female. 1 week back I got the underarm area waxed and probably because of the hair pull I have developed 2 guilty like thing on the area under my arms. It is a little painful when I stretch my arms up. Please suggest. I usually get the region waxed because shaving or using hair removal creams turns the skin dark in that region. Please advise.

Hi, Pallo,
Thanks for query.
It seems that due to waxing some irritation took place in hair follicle giving rise to some infection.
Apply some antibiotic cream on the part and wait for 2-3 days if bumps persisted or pain remains then go for antibiotic medicine orally for 2-3 days.
Ok and bye.
