A 44-year-old female asked:

Can inflammatory breast cancer rash be close to armpit?

Yes: The tissue planes and nodes are in continuity and spread and edema can occur.
Dr. Joshua Garren
Radiation Oncology 24 years experience
Yes: But the armpit is also a very common place for both abscesses and fungal overgrowth. If you do not have access to a doctor, you might try warm compresses and three times a day antifungal cream for a couple of days. If it does not go away or start to drain, see a doctor. Good luck, .
