Welcome to the forum. You must be having infection of lymph glands of axillary area. It can be treated with antibiotics like ciprofloxacin 500mg for 2 times daily for 5 days. It must resolve by it and if does not you must get examined your breast and chest for any infection or tumors as they usually cause inflammation and swelling of lymph nodes of axillary area. Take care.
