It may suggest folliculitis.

Detailed Answer:

Hello Dear,

Sore armpits mean that you could be having folliculitis ie infection of hair follicles.

First and foremost is the hygiene of the affected part. Daily wash is must.

You may need to take a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin or augmentin. For correct dosage you should consult your PCP. He may also examine you to rule out any underlying lymphnode.

Take care
