Without visual diagnosis its hard to tell. It might be either dermatitis,intertigo or most probably i suspect Folliculitis.Its due to foreign body inflammatory reaction to razor.

You might clean the area with antiseptics and prevent further infection also you can buy OTC antibiotics with anti-fungal and apply and avoid razor shaving. If it still persist contact deamatologist.

did you apply deodorant right after you shaved? try using a sharper razor, i get this sometimes. it is usually when i am not completely dry under my arm and i use deodorant. use soothing stuff like aloe and hydrocortisone cream. now if it is infected use antibiotic creams. and don't scratch. just makes matters worse.
