Skin, Hair & Nails Endocrinology

I noticed that I have bumps appearing on both my underarms and also, on my crotch area. Previously, the bumps were sore and painful but have since reduced in size and they no longer hurt. I had seen a doctor for a similar condition and was told it had something to do with my sweat glands. Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear J,

It is hard to be certain from the decription what you have, but one common cause of recurrent painful bumps on the armpit and groin is hidradenitis suppurativa.

This condition tends to occur over flexural areas like the groin, armpit, below the breast and on the buttocks. The bumps are red, painful, and recurrent, and can lead to scarring.

This is often treated with topical antibiotics like Clindamyin lotion and oral antibiotics like Doxycyline. There are many other treatment options if antibiotics fail.

I think if you do have new painful lesions appearing again, do see a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and advice you on managing the condition.

Dear J,

I fully agree with Dr Colin that it is best you consult a doctor to evaluate the lesions and advise further.

It could also well be sebaceous cysts, or other cystic lesions that are flaring up and resolving, but causing you much discomfort in the interim.

Hope all is well!
