Do you have a rash at all?  What types of soaps are you using to wash?  Have you tried changing the soap up?  When you wash, do you make sure to get it all off of the area?
no i have no rash and i use dove soap  and also i always used it even before it started and i was fine and yes i do make sure it gets all off of the area
It could be a fungus causing the itch (although you would probably see something with that), or even blocked sweat glands- but there are a few other possibilities.  If you haven't seen this post, this has a good response from one of the doctors that used to respond to questions, it has some good information you can use- https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Dermatology/Armpit-Itch-with-no-apparent-rash/show/344806
