Brief Answer:
Pics upload please

Detailed Answer:

Can you upload pics of the rash and the lump?
How is the fluid look like? Is it pus or blood?
How long you have this lump under the arm? Does it pain?
Since there is a break in the skin it leads to infection. I suggest to immediately apply over the counter antibiotic cream like neomycin. No more shaving under the arm pit till it heals.
You should not worry about the cut but should evalute for lump.
