Itchy sore rashes and lump on the armpit after changing the deodorant. Diagnosed as fungal infection. What is the chance of blocked sweat gland?

Hi Doctor, about a year ago I developed a horrible rash under both my armpits after switching to a different deodorant. It was extremely itchy and sore. It cleared up after I switched back. However, a little later the rash came back again and I also noticed a lump under my right armpit. Hard, not painful and didn t seem to express any material. By the time I went to the doctor it was gone and he thought I had a fungal infection . It cleared up. 6 months later, the lump under my right armpit came back, and it feels the same way. Could this be a blocked sweat gland or should I be more concerned? No other symptoms, I feel great otherwise.

Hi, Mystical.
Thanks for query.
It seems that you have got enlarge lymph node in armpit.
Due to rash there might be having some constant mild infection in the armpit leading to enlarge lymph node.
Nothing to worry, gradually it will be subside after infection clears.
Ok and bye.
