Hi dear you had a swelling under your armpit, and it ruptured during shaving with puss drainage ,and it has come again.dear there is nothing to worry ,your right it could be an infected hair follicle or an infected lymph node ,or any other swelling which had got infected,the problem is you have not treated it completely, if there is still puss in it ,get it drained, it is not a big issue and take a course of antibiotic ,like leofloxcin,and even if there is n.o puss in it ,even then take course of antibiotic to eradicate the underlined infection ,which trouble you again and again.
