The tissue in the armpit area is likely simple breast tissue and generally will not cause a problem. Direct excision is the simplest way to remove this if it bothers you from a cosmetic standpoint. There are no home remedies to treat this.

Axillary breast tissue can be treated by simple direct excision. Other than that, it will not go away.
