Painful armpit bumps / lumps

Hi, I have a cluster of lumps and its uncomfortable and sometimes painful, could I just use some Bactroban or BC56 for this irritation? Could this be the due to me shaving my arpits?

Hallo GVS
It could be due to shaving or the deoderant you use. You can try Bactroban, it usually works, but if the lumps are red, shiny and swollen, you need to see your doctor.
