In brief: Armpit rash

Underarm rash can be from sweating from a funcgal infection growing on the skin or from a sensitivity to a deodorant you are using.
For the first, keep the area dry, and you may need an antifungal cream for the rash. For the latter use a fragrance free deodorants and change types until you find the one that is least irritating.
