I have had an underarm bump for over 2 weeks now. It's on the upper part of my armpit, it's about the size of a nail head. I've tried using heat on it and I thought it was starting to get better but now it's the same as it was. Any ideas? Should I wait it out or go see the Dr?

  • Does it hurt, warm or tender to the touch, or look like its filled with anyhting? If the answer is yes its probably an Abscess. Or it could simply be an infected hair follicle... but if it looks like its a rather deep bump it could be a swollen lymph node in which case u must get it examined. U can never be too safe.
