Use towels or some sort of padding. Works wonders.

Don't be such a sissy. Walk it off.

Just kidding.
They do have half crutches which are like canes with an arm brace. Maybe that would be a better solution for you.

I think you're supposed to put your weight on your hands while using them, not on your 'pits. Most people don't though.

Well, as I've always been explained, you're not supposed to use your armpits. The proper way to use the crutches is to hold them against your side, just below the armpit. Otherwise, you'll get sore you are experiencing at present.
