Deodorant causing major itching... wait... what?!... suggestions? - September 7th 2013, 05:42 PM

Ok so recently my arm pits started getting SUPER SUPER itchy. At first I was like ok, what ever. But it kept going on and on. Sometimes it wasn't so bad but it was definitely kind of annoying. It was getting a little irritated looking too.

So I looked up a few of the reasons why.

It seemed like my deodorant was at least in some way responsible.

SO.. for the time being DEODORANT IS THE CULPRIT!!!! I stopped using it for 2 days now and it's been fine.

This is weird because it's just Lady Speed Stick which I've been using for years but what ever but oh well, I'm sure in some weird twisted way it makes sense.

Any how, so far everything is fine, no BO problems yet etc.... But I can't hope that won't come up ever, so I need new ideas for a diff brand of WOMEN'S deodorant asap (preferably a brand that's defs sold in Canada )

I use Secret Clinical Strength for sensitive skin, and I haven't had any problems with it.



Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

I recommend Toms of Maine. I buy it online.

It's organic so is not full of nasty chemicals.

Hm... Both sound great maybe I'll try out both and see how they both are.

It's just so weird, I have literally used Lady Speed Stick for years and years, I'm not sure why it'd lately start bothering me. But by the day after I stopped using it the problem went away..... But being more athletically inclined it's not as if I can never use it again So thanks for the suggestions thus far

My deodrant makes me itch if I put it on too soon after I shave my armpits and can become irritated for up to a week. Do you think this might have happened to you or did it just start itching out of nowhere?

No, it was out of no where, I've never had a problem with it till now and it wasn't after anything in particular, it was just random

I use arms and hammers, it's really good and I've tried many brands. Just like the user above mentioned, I was going to ask if you shaved before using it but you said no it's not the case. It also says it on the back of the deodorant if you have any broken skin, (so not just shaving) in your underarms it can get irritated

Trust me, cuts isn't the problem, shaving isn't the problem. I really don't get it either, there's no obvious reason so who knows....

Perhaps the brand very slightly altered their ingredients list.

Or maybe you have developed an allergy/intolerance to a particular ingredient.
