Painful boils under arm

I have an area slightly to the right of my armpit that is about the size of a half dollar coin covered in painful boils. It started out looking like a rash or something like a carpet burn but after a couple of days, welted up, and today erupted into about 12-15 small boils in the small area. People have told me it could be a spider bite or an allergic reaction to a spider bite because I have smaller, less painful bumps underneath the same arm that are very itchy.
The boils are crowded very close together, reddish, and I feel pain constantly, even if I have my arm elevated to avoid any short of friction on the boils. No pus or any sort of leakage. Does anyone have any idea what this could be???

Thanks for your help.
