Deoderant

A few weeks ago I began to see small red bumps on the outside of my armpit. I changed my body wash, lotion, even stopped shaving for a few days. It kept getting worse and looks hideous. I finally admitted it was my deoderant. I didn't wear any for two days and it started clearing up. I just used baby powder and kept putting it on throughout the day. It smelled okay but looked ridiculous. I'm a sahm so it was okay but I had an appointment so I ran out and bought Toms natural deoderant not antiperspirant.

It does. Not. Work. At ALL.

I have several appointments coming up and I can't smell like this or look like my arms are covered in baby powder!! Help! What natural deoderant can I use that won't let me stink and won't make it look like I have an alien growing out of my arm? And it needs to be cheap under $10 including shipping if it is online.

Do you have a health food store near you? I tried this one aloe one, but it made me smell weird. Not like bo, just musty. No good. They make a few though.

You need an anti-perspirant. Try a local organic/ natural foods store. They'll have sonething. Or ask a pharmacist at a drug store

Have you just tried a different brand of deoderant? I have sensitive skin and can't use certain brands, but I can use Dove with no problem.

My daughter and I use a lime. Works like a charm.

Just cut it in half, wipe it on your pits, put it in a baggie and refrigerate it. We use it for a week and then get another one.

You might need an anti-perspirant, and not just a deodorant. I use super-strong, can wear for days stuff.--which isn't true on me. Major wetness issues. OK, TMI over Take a walk up and down the aisles and read labels to find a soothing one. You may need a dermatologist.

Oh pooh. With shipping it's probaby over $10 but I'll recommend it anyway:

PS You can see if a store near you has it. I had to order mine online since the nearest store to me is about an hour away.
