I have a red raised area under my arm that is seeping. It started

Resolved Question:

I have a red raised area under my arm that is seeping. It started out just as little red boil like eruptions. They have now broken. Is this a condition that an anti-fungal cream might address?
Thank you.

It could be a boil, carbuncle, hidradenitis suppurativa. However, you should not self treat yourself as that may harm you. Anti-fungal is not likely to help. It's important that you see a doctor for examination. Thanks and best wishes.
