This is painful and has been happening for about a week or so. I have been using hydrogen peroxide and neosaporin the lumps. I was the arm 2-3 times dailey. Do i need to doctor for my condition?
Thanks for the elucidate history.
This is called hidradenitis and whatever you are doing is absolutely correct. If you clean the area with liquid povidone iodine 4 times a day, it will give better results.
By showing the Doctor, you get a confirmed diagnosis and a prescription for antibiotics, probiotics, anti-inflammatory and supportive medicines.
Yes, better to consult a Doctor.
I hope this answers your query.
