Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
waxing produces minor trauma of the area (as hair is removed )increasing the chances of infection.As you has got infection in the armpit ,get a course of antibiotic to treat it
Wish you good health

Hi, I m a 17 year old girl and last summer I noticed I had a small lump under my left arm pit. I asked a friend about it and she said it was probably a cyst and not to worry about it, so I didnt. Over the past year the lump has always been there but it hasn t hurt all the time but every once in a while it would be sore for about a week and go away, now it s back again but it seems like it s more sore than it was the other times and it doesn t seem to be going away. Should I be worried?
