I am 20 years old, female. I have a armpit on right hand underarm. It pains me during the time of monthly problems (periods) only, and after the 3-4 days its get removed itself. There is no pain at all after periods. I suffer this problem every month from last 1-2 years. Would you suggest me what is this? And what should I do. What kind of problem is that?
