Armpit Bumps

Can't tell if the red bump on your armpit is a pimple, ingrown hair, or something else? According to experts, while pimples can certainly appear in the armpit area, other causes are much more likely, such as folliculitis, dermatitis, and hidradenitis suppurativa. In addition, common yet arm-specific triggers like hair removal, deodorant, and products with fragrance can also trigger red bumps to emerge. Treatments for armpit pimples and spots include (1) OTC topical treatments that contain salicylic acid, (2) switching to professional hair removal for those prone to ingrown hair, and (3) consulting with a dermatologist or beauty expert to determine what might be causing your armpit breakout.
