Maybe folliculitis: It sounds like you have folliculitis an infection and inflammation in the hair follicles. See your dermatologist for treatment but in the interim you can try a benzoyl peroxide wash.

Not certain: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.

See details: I doubt it is related to tee shirts. Change or better yet just stop your deodorant and do not shave or irritate the armpits for a couple of weeks and see if it clears.
