itchy painful armpit

hi im a 28 year old female and for the past few months my right armpit has been very sore and really itchy,there is also a tiny red spot in the middle,when it first started i had it in both arms just after i started using a new deodrant so i stopped using that brand of deodrant and my left arm get better very quickly and have since had no problems with it but my right armpit has got worse,i saw my gp a few months ago and he said i had an infection and gave me pills and told me to apply a hot flannel and stop using deodrant-i done this and it seemed to have worked for a while but then it flared up again and im really worried it could be cancer,id be grateful for some advice
many thanks

Re: itchy painful armpit

Not cancer. Try changing your soap to an all natural oil based soap. No fragrance. Try using cortisone ointment. This is probably an allergic reaction.
