Dear Friend,
Yes i think you have skin infection caused by bacteria, hence you should maintain proper hygeine in the areas were you sweat a lot.
I whould suggest you to consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in your area and take internal medicine,avoid any external application as it can cause suppression and delay in complete recovary. Homeopathic medicine like Hepar sulph, sulphur, silica will help in this condition and will prevent reoccurence.
Thank you

I have a lump under my left armpit. I first got it about a year ago, but then it went away within about two months. Then, several months later, it came back and was even bigger. It took up most of my armpit and was red and very painful. It has now started leaking milky white fluid, a bit like pus I think, and it occasionally has blood in it. What could it be and what should I do?

I have a painful (not too bad) lump I can feel under the surface of my skin on one of my armpits. I am prone to cuts and spots caused by ingrown hair and shaving, but recently I ve also had a few small spots that pop with some puss in them. I have recently undergone my first laser hair removal session (a week and a half ago), could it be due to that? Is this normal? I haven t had the same reaction on the other armpit or my bikini area which has also been treated. Thanks.

Dear Doctor,My 5 month old baby has a red swollen lump on his arm. I noticed this after he recieved his DTaP/IPV/Hib jab about a week and a half ago but these were in his legs. I am wondering if this has affected the area where he had a hepatitus B injection at birth? The lump looks like a boil it is dark red and is swollen. It has not reduced in shape or size over the last few days. Thank you. Rebecca.
