In brief: Abscess
There could be abscess or inflammed or infected oil glands such as hidraadenitis suppuritiva.
This requires examination, and treatment with antibiotics and possible incision amd drainage.

In brief: Any swelling?
Pain in the armpit could be coming from a clogged hair follicle in which there would be a lump that is red, hot and tender. If it is from a rash it would feel like it burns when you put on antiperspirant.
A swollen lymph node could also be a cause of pain in the armpit. To be sure go to your primary doc and have them take a look at it.
