In brief: Underarm rash

Underarm rashes may be the result of an allergic reaction to a deodorant or antiperspirant.
However, heat, fungal skin conditions as well as razor burn may be to blame too. A rash under the arm can be embarrassing as the urge to scratch may be over powering. You can try otc cortisone twice a day but if not improved see your doctor.
