I too suffer this.... I find shaving cream, and a good razor never cheap disposables but Venus etc ...the more expensive ones and not all the time,  you can't shave every 1-2 days in summer....and after I rub with a wash  cloth or body scrub mitt to stop ingrown hairs ...

Only use sensitive deodorant and never aerosol sprays....

Of you get a rash try and leave it alone to dry out

Maybe your underarms are quite sensitive to the razors you are using?

I have been using gillette daisy razors since, forever, they might not be the fanciest looking razors or the most expensive but I have never had a rash from them.

I always apply a really think layer of shaving cream so I am not just running down the razor on my bare skin iykwim.

Recently I used Nads Sensitive Hair Removal cream for my upper lip and it worked quite well, pretty sure it is suitable for under arm use as well.

I got this one using aerosol deodorants - avoid them!

I get this if I don't use a quality razor. Venus is my choice and haven't had trouble with them yet. Cheap ones are horrid on me.
