There is a lump under my left armpit for years now.

This answer was rated:

There is a lump under my left armpit for years now. Sometimes its leaking, or bleeding. My GP gave antibiotics twice before he stated: " it's a hygiene problem" I was offended as I am washing and quite proud of my appearance and hygiene. So I never went back to that GP again. That was already over a year ago. Now there is the same symptoms appeared uder my right arm. I am devastated and confused. NHS 111 website is useless. I can't get in dermatology because of Covid-19. Tell me what should I do?
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: Quite hard, but if I press it it's leeks liquid and blood. I have it for years on the left hand side I just noticed the one on the right
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No. I'm not allergic. I don't have any long term illness.
