Brief Answer:
Need more infromation.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

I have seen the picture you uploaded.

Does she feel itching or burning sensations over the armpit?
Does she sweat a lot under armpit?
Since how long she noticed this rashes?suddenly?

It can be urticarial rash or contact dermatitis or heat rash or fungal infection but without complete medical history and examination I will not be able to come at a certain conclusion.

So,provide me more information and get back to me.
