Have red rash on both of my armpits. Is it just ingrown hair?

I have a red rash on both of my armpits. I went to my doctor when it was only a dime shape rash, she said it was most likely an ingrown hair . She recomended that I not shave and put hot conpresses on it. Well, i haven t shaves and I haven t put anything hot on them. While washing under my arms and applying deoderant in the morning, it stings.Any ideas what it could be?
