What could these lumps be?

When I first got pregnant with my daughter Rebekah, the glands under my armpits swelled, and bled and alot of pus drained from them. Now, five months after her birth they are still there. What could they be?

  • You need to be seen by your Dr ASAP. Sounds like a boil...which can lead to a Staph infection.

  • also I wanted to add your armpits are where your lymph nodes are and if they are swollen or anything it can be a sign of something more serious. Please contact your Dr right away.
