There can be possibility of secondary infection in your arm pits. Stay way from hot and humid conditions. The only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. You can take a course of antibiotic containing ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 5 days.You can apply Gentamycin cream and can take pain killers such as paracetamol by mouth
