Re: Recurring staph infection on armpit
I used to get very painful bumps in my armpits. It would lead to infection, and then I would have to get the pus surgically drained. They would just "ice" my underarm and then drain the pus, which was very painful. The ice did NOTHING!
That said, I linked the painful bumps to the deodorant that I was using and finally found, through trial and error, that it was the aluminum in my deodorant that was causing the painful bumps and rash in my underarm.
I switched to a deodorant that did not contain aluminum, and in the many years following, I have not had any underarm problems since then.
