a few questions (kind of embarrassing)
Quick rundown--a little over 5 years ago I had my first baby. My armpit got huge. Swollen and huge. If I rubbed it it would go down but never went away. She only nursed for 6m but I still had the swollen armpit. Almost 2 years ago I had my boy, once again HUGE swollen armpit. I rubbed and massaged and pushed on it hard and it went down but never back to normal. He stopped nursing around 16m. I'm still pregnant with the 3rd baby and my armpit is still huge! I am ok with it but it makes me very self conscious to wear tank tops or anything that you can see my underarms in. Is there a way to make it go down permanently? Have any of you had this happen? I also noticed in my other armpit (just last week) that I had a hard small lump, is that just a gland or what?
Also, when I say that my armpit is big, I mean it. I look like one of those Barbie armpits that is round and sticks out. It's horribly embarrassing.
