I haven't been on the boards for a while but I thought I would run a problem by all of you.
I have been getting very painful lumps under my armpits. I used to get one once in a while but now they are occuring more frequently.
I have problably had 5 since mid June. They vary in size ranging from a dime to a quarter and most of the time they turn red. I know for sure they are not ingrown hairs. They usually go away about 3-4 days after I get them but they can last longer up to 2 weeks. They don't feel with pus and are usually tender and hard to touch. I got one about a week ago and it was more painful than usual. I had a lot of pain when I moved my arm in any direction and that is not normal.
I know it could possibly be swollen lymph nodes but I was wondering if this sounds famililar to anyone?
