In brief: It depends on the
Cause of the rash.
If it looks like a fungal dermatitis you can use an over antifungal cream. If its an allergic rash the treatment will be different. There are multiple other causes and therefore you should see a doctor.

In brief: Rash in armpits
This can be a yeast infection or allergy to your deodorant-antiperspirant.
If stopping the latter doesn't help, then consider the yeast infection. Sarna lotion is available otc and can help the itch.
