Is it itchy or sore at all?? It could be shaving rash, or else you may be getting a slight reaction to your deodarant, especially if it's strong. You could try changing deoadrant and see if it helps??

Is there maybe an ingredient in the deodarants that you might be allergic too?? You could try looking for some for sensitive skin or some without alcohol in them. The skin under your arms is a pretty sensitive area though so this kind of thing can happen easily!! I get it too, it's annoying!!

Maybe you could talk to your doctor about it, he could help you with it.

Hey there,

As you've already tried changing your deodorants then it may be a good idea to see your doctor about this problem incase you do have an allergy or if you have an infection of sorts. As you shave, this could actually just be shaving rash or an infection if you've washed/used deodorant without leaving your underarms for a while - that can actually be quite common.

Take care.

try a different brand of razor. Like the mens type.


" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P
