See a doctor: Eruptions of this nature may be infective, allergic, non-infectious inflammatory and even rarely due to underlying malignancies. Working out the cause for these may take a prolonged investigation by an experienced clinician. See your pcp and if they cannot handle this they may refer you to a dermatologist or allergist.

I keep getting rashes everytime I go to the country (my whole family does)! This itchy rash also prevents me from sleep at night! What to do?
See dermatologist: If this happens when you are in the countryside , you are likely allergic to something outdoors or even to the sun. I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist to find out the cause. Certainly poison oak/poison ivy is a factor to be considered especially since its resin on contaminated articles may remain potent for months. ...Read more

This : This may be an eczematous rash, or possibly a dermatitis. However a unilateral arm pit rash likely excludes the possibility of an allergy to deodorant, which is what commonly causes rashes in this area. If it is eczema, then there is no cure per say. This is a condition that comes and goes, and will respond to treatment. If it is a mild it will respond to over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. I suggest you see your doctor for this issue. An actual inspection of the area in question will lead to a more accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
