  • Even though you haven't switched deodorants- it could still be the problem. I used to use Secret all the time and one day- it just started making me break out. I started using something else and it cleared up- then tried switching back- and the rash was back with a vengence. It was HORRIBLE!!! Now I have to use deodorant for sensitive skin. I use the Dove Sensitive skin formula and I have no problems. But that rash I had was horrible- and nothing helped except switching deodorants. Almay also makes one that is really gentle- I used it when I had the rash- but I don't think it is as strong as the Dove- so I don't ecommend it if you sweat a lot!

  • DH armpits suddenly broke out in rash once for no reason so he abstained from deodorant for a little over a week and sprinkled Gold Bond Powder on every morning and it went away.
