Difficult to tell: Isolated, painful small blisters around the genitalia suggests hsv i or ii but the, axillary blisters throws a little wrench into the works. May be something else entirely and should be examined by your doctor.

Herpes: Blusters under the armpit is not a typical presentation of herpes. You can have type one and type two herpes in the oral area or genital area. Type one is more seen in they mouth area and type twos more seen the genital area.
