Most likely cause of a rash under the arms would be an allergy to deodorant if it is used. It could be an allergy to an ingredient or if it is an anti-perspirant deodorant the sweat glands could have become clogged and infected. Another possible explanation is an irritation caused by excessive moisture.

Rash could be caused by several things change in soaps, deotorant and laundry soap. It could be new clothing that worn before washing, the material in clothing and even an allergic reaction to something you ate. Stress is another thing that can cause rashes. Rashes are hard to pin point what is causing them.

If you have recently shaved under your arms a red rash with bumps could be caused by the razor irritating the skin. This is called razor burn and is only temporary until the skin heals. Powder helps soothe it and dries the area.
