Do you know what this thing is on my underarm?

Okay, so I know this is kind of gross, but I discovered this when I was shaving this morning. It was not there yesterday at all. I've had these before, and they come and go. It is not a pimple, and it is very sore. Does anyone know what this is? If so, do you know how to get rid of it? Thanks.

    most likely an ingrown hair.

    or razor bumps.

    just be careful when you shave.

    I'm sure it'll go down after time.

    It's a razor burn or a shaving bump thing. I got those the first time I shaved my underarm, and always do. I use Nair now, and it hasn't affected it at all, and in a month or so it was gone, and now I don't get those anymore- Nair works great! Just make sure to scrub it off. If you just wipe it off, the hair won't come off. But it'll take a month or so it'll go away.

    Maybe an allergic reaction?

    I get similar bumps under my arms when I use certain kinds of deodorant

    I have them too. And I'm still

    trying to figure out how to get rid of

    it.
