1. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice contains anti-inflammatory properties that ease swelling as well as rich in vitamin C and a great natural astringent.
Lumps/bumps appear under the armpit as a result of shaving incorrectly, when shaving for instance shaving sticks should glide/shave in the direction the hairs grow not the against and so on.
-Dip a cotton ball in freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply it on the lump/bump.
-Leave it on for 20 minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water.
– Repeat this 2 or 3 times everyday for a week.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is antiseptic as well as antibiotic that fights infection. It helps dry out the lumps/bumps.
-Mix equal parts of unfiltered apple cider vinegar and water together.
-Soak cotton ball in the mix and apply on the inflamed area.
-Leave it on for 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
– Repeat this 2 or 3 times daily desired results are gotten.
3. Warm Water Compresses
Hot water compresses work well because the hot temperature helps increase blood circulation and will help in this case to reduce the size of the lump/bump.
-Soak towel in hot water.
-Wring out the excess water.
-Place towel under armpit for 5 minutes.
-Repeat this 2 or 3 times daily till lumps disappear.
Be sure to check with a medical personnel if you suspect lumps are not as a result of shaving.
