I have a painful bump in my armpit. I have had them before and I have went to the doctor, she said that they are swollen lymph nodes, however I have also been told that they could be caused from shaving. I have gotten these bumps under each armpit, not just one. This time it is bleeding and pus is coming out. please help me I don t know what to do and I am panicking

Dermatologist 's  Response
You must have developed furuncle - a type of bacterial skin infection.
Do not panic. Start taking anti-inflammatory and analgesic medication. You can apply neosporin over it.
Start oral antibiotics in consultation with a dermatologist.
