Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
You have a bacterial infection in your armpits probably resulting from shaving or waxing your armpits.
You need to take an antibiotic course for 7 days for complete recovery.
The blood tests reveal anemia and bacterial infection.
You can take iron XXXXXXX food after you recover to increase your hemoglobin.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
