  • Tessa, I had to eventually have the sweat glands removed from under my right arm. This was in 93. I have not had another abcess, boil since then. However, I now get them under my left arm. It has occurred 3 times in 3 years. Only had it lanced once though. You need antibiotics when you get them and this will cause them to drain without being lanced. believe me I feel your pain. I use to have them packed after the lancing and that hurt as well, especially the removal. Don't delay going to the DOCTOR. The sooner you have the antibiotics the quicker you will have relief!

Is there something wrong with the sweat gland? I have similar symptoms but dread dealing with the medical menaces.

  • Try looking into Hidradenitis suppurativa- I would venture to guess that is what MrsO was speaking of. It affects the apocrine sweat glands and causes something that is often mistaken for boils, to occur repeatedly. The underarms are one affected area, so you might want to read up on it and see if you have any of the other symptoms. Of course, with the one symptom you mentioned it may just be a reccuring boil. But best to cover all the possibilities right?
