Armpit Itch: Itchy armpits are usually due to poor hygiene, dermatitis, or an allergic reaction. Check to see if your soaps have changed or your routines of the frequency of showers. Deodorants can cause the itch as well (ie allergic reaction). Try taking a shower and no deodorant for a day or two and see if this resolves.

Additional considera: Do you have itching in other areas such as the groin area or the i Area between your fingers? Are there linear raised streaks anywhere on your skin? If so, it could be scabies but I do believe it’s probably secondary to an ingredient in the deodorant. Try a hypoallergenic deodorant after the deodorant free period. https://www.deodorantadvisor.com/best-hypoallergenic-deodorant/
