In brief: Arm pit rash

The most common cause of an arm pit rash with itching is fungus build-up, usually induced by excess sweat.
Treatment is usually with an otc fungal cream like Clotrimazole 1%. Other possible causes include sensitivity to deodorants or an inflammatory condition of the sweat glands in the arm pit.

In brief: Eczema

It could be eczema or warts, or an allergic reaction to something.
Rashes are best treated in person so the doctor can see and feel to determine what it is.

Skin folds can be a good place for fungus to grow. If so, this can be treated with OTC creams.
