Itchy, red armpits that smell like fish.

Hi, I have this recurring problem under both armpits. It usually happens to just one, but this time it's both. My armpit starts off itchy, then it gets very red and burns then this clear discharge comes out and smells like fish, it happens under my breasts sometimes. When my armpits discharge this smelly stuff it leaves light yellow stains on my shirts. Could this be some type of infection? It will be ok for awhile and then it starts back up. Sometimes worse than before. I already have Psoriasis that covers 90% of my body. Didn't know if this may have something to do with it.
