In brief: Armpit crabs

I presume you are referring to crab lice.
Rare, but certainly a possibility. Any hairy area is susceptible for lice. However, if it were crabs, you probably also have it in the pubic area.

In brief: Pediculosis

Body lice (pediculosis humanus corporis) is most apt to present on the flank, neck or upper shoulders but might manifest in the axilla.
Crabs or pubic lice (phthirus pubis) might be found under the arm but is more likely to be found in the groin area.
