I have developed bumps/ rash under my left arm near the crease. I also have a similar rash on the inside of my right thigh. Both itch. What is it?

In brief: Fungal irritation

probably a fungal type infection like athletes foot and/or irritation from shaving.
Mix some hydrocortisone 1% cream together with some terbinafine cream and apply twice daily for two weeks. See your physician in 2 weeks if not improved.

In brief: Possible infection

Your symptoms could be from a bacteria or yeast infection of the skin.
You can try over the counter Lamisil (terbinafine) ("jock itch") cream which may help if it's yeast. If it's bacteria, you will need an antibiotic that works for skin infections. See your doctor if it spreads or turns into deep or raised "bumps" which could be something called an abscess.
