There is a very large list of possibilities. My first thought would be that the lump in your armpit is a lymph node that is inflamed. The rash may be a condition called erythema nodosum. This rash is a faint red color but is quite painful to touch.
I must recommend that you see your doctor to have this evaluated as I cannot really give you an answer about this with any confidence.
