Dear Ama
It is often caused by infection in the sweat glands under the arms. Roll on or deoderants can sometimes aggrevate the condition as it blocks the sweat glands. You can use Bactroban or Fucidin ointment on the painful lumps. Try to rather wash with baby shampoo or Dove soap a few times per day and avoid the deoderant for a week or two
