Pus filled bumps under arm pits, growing, foul smell on leaking, during menstrual cycle. Treatment?

recently I have been getting these pus filled bumps under my arm pits. They grow and are sensitive to touch. Once they burst they leak this foul smell when I sweat. They usually form around the time of my menstrual cycle or when my armpit hair is growing. I have been getting them for almost a year now. What should I do? is their a cure?
