Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Swollen painful armpits should be evaluated for hydradenitis suppurative swelling of sweat glands there and should be managed accordingly. Take some pain killers for the relief.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
