Red itchy rings in armpits, pin prick sensation, swelling on scratching. Causes and treatment?

I have a red, very itchy ring around each of my armpits. So so itchy. Feels like pin pricks. I have had this several times and can t seem to get any answers. I ve seen more than one dermatologist , none of them coming up with any answers. Skin in the center gets really wrinkly and the red ring swells after scratching .
