Painful lump on my armpit? Watch

      If you hadn't mentioned the pus, then I'd say it's just a gland playing up. But ad you mentioned pus, I suspect infection. Like someone said put hot poultice on it, to draw out the infection/inflammation and hopefully it'll go down.

      Edit: just noticed, this was a while ago, so hopefully hive got things sorted now.

      It might be an abscess in which case, dip a towel in hot water and press against the lump and keep it clean. Go to a doctor and get some antibiotics.
