An armpit lump is a swelling or bump under your arm. It is caused by swollen lymph nodes and can be very painful.
In some cases, these lumps last a few days and go away on their own, while in some cases, the lumps increase in size and cause pain.
Certain home remedies can help reduce the symptoms and the appearance of armpit lumps. Here is a list of them below:
Hot water compresses work well because the hot temperature will encourage blood circulation and, in this case, will help reduce the size of the lump / bump.
method: Soak a towel in hot water. Wring out the excess water.
Place the towel under the armpit for 5 minutes. Repeat this process two or three times a day until the lumps are gone.
Lemon juice contains anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling, is high in vitamin C and a great natural astringent.
method: Dip a cotton ball in freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply it to the lump / bump.
Leave on for 20 minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water.
Repeat this two or three times a day for a week.
Apple cider vinegar is both an antiseptic and an antibiotic for infections. It will help dry out the lumps / bumps.
method: Mix equal parts of unfiltered apple cider vinegar and water.
Soak a cotton ball in the mixture and apply it to the inflamed area.
Leave on for 5 minutes, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Repeat this process two or three times a day to get the results you want.
