Let me start out by saying how sorry I am that you are having this problem. My senior year of high school I started having a very similar problem with deodorant. I would get a splotchy rash from it and it would itch HORRIBLY!! I started using spray on deodorant. I am currently using Dove Skin Renewal and the rash and itching has been gone for years. No guarantees but at $5 its worth a try to see if it would help you too. Good luck!!

I’m really liking Lavanila (I bought it from Sephora, might be available in other places depending on where you live). It’s fully natural and the stuff works pretty damn good, it even rivals the Secret antiperspirant I used to use. It’s more expensive than the cheap drugstore ones but it lasts a really long time…

I have the same problem, so frustrating! My favorite is Donna Karen Cashmere Mist deodorant, tried this on a recommendation from a fellow sufferer and it is SO good! Since it’s so spendy at $25 a stick I switch between that and the Lavanila which is $14 (or $8 for a travel size). The Donna Karen is my favorite though, smells amazing and I haven’t gotten any rashes from it and no irritation, even using it right after shaving! It says right on the packaging too that it’s recommended for sensitive skin. 🙂

I worked at sephora for quite some time and I reccomend lavanilla! it’s natural and smells good and actually works. it’s availible in the section right before the register where they keep travel sized products

Brookeshappy:  Yes, the Donna Karan is amazing! OP, one way to save money on it is during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Every year, there is a trio for around $50 ish, I think. I’d pay full price in a heartbeat,if I had to, it’s my HG deodorant.

I started having a similar issue a couple years ago and it was super itchy and embarrassing–I switched to Dove (which is probably something you’ve already tried…), just the original one with no special scent, and I haven’t had the issue since. Again, you’ve probably already tried that, but just in case…good luck!

jcud4:  I used to use Dove because it was the only brand that didn’t irritate my skin. However, I recently decided to try the all natural route and bought PiperWai deodorant. I really like it and it works great. It’s just a deodorant so it doesn’t stop you from sweating but I don’t mind that because you’re supposed to sweat. It smells like Vicks Vapor Rub which I actually like. The only downside is it comes in a jar. However, the owners went on Shark Tank and got funding which they plan to use to grow the business and create a stick formula.

I use Nivea as it’s the only one that doesn’t irritate my skin. 🙂

I have a lot of allergies which I’ve been tested for.  The only one on my approved list is Almay (either gel or roll-on).  Most others (including Dove) have fragrance, or masking fragrance, which I am allergic to.  You can by Almay at drug stores like Walgreens or CVS (target, walmart, etc. do not sell it)

I also get rashes from deodorants, but beware: I’ve even had that issue with natural deodorants! I use Herban Cowboy “Blossom” and it works pretty well.

jcud4:  My boyfriend started getting horrible itchy rashes from deodorant and was told it was the nickel. He switched from solid to Secret aerosol deodorant on the advice of his doctor and he tolerates that stuff just fine.
