What is going on?

I'm 19 and around December of last year I noticed two small holes (one under each armpit). They have since closed but now for the past 5 weeks I've had a nasty rash under each arm, They are both secreting a clear, strange smelling liquid and burn every time a shirt, rag, or any type of fabric touches it, The coloration of the rash is a reddish brown color.

Have you seen a doctor?

Are there any lumps under the skin with it? Any pain, itching?

This could be anything from a reaction to your deodorant, razor, infected hair follicles, a staph infection, MRSA - the list is long and varied. You really need to see your doctor about it.

Ask them to swab the fluid and test it, or to biopsy part of the rash to test that.
