they start off as, bubbles then when they bust there is a sometimes brown liquid stuffing oozing out of it. after they busts they just turn into open sores that hurt really bad.

Ouch, that sounds miserable! It could be a number of things from allergic reaction to an infection of some sort. You need to be seen by your healthcare provider for an evaluation and treatment. Avoid sharing antiperspirants and towels or anything that comes in contact with the area until you know what is causing the outbreak.
As Dzoo said, it could be many things, from folliculitis(infected hair follicles) to contact dermatitis( allergy to something coming into contact with that skin) to even a side effect of having diabetes, or something else. Please keep it clean a d sterile until you can be diagnosed by a dr. A dermatologist would be a good start, a general practitioner or internal medicine dr might help and an endocrinologist if anyone in your family has diabetes. I know you may want to pick at those areas, DON'T, as if infection is present, it may spread inside your body thru the lymph nodes under the arms. Keep that area cleansed with sops and water, do NOT shave, touch it or use antiperspirant until you have it checked by a dr and get the go ahead. Open skin (sores or rashes) can invite and harbor pathogens, which are harmful bacteria. Best of luck, pattishan
