My husband suggested his deodorant to me when I complained
that mine wasn't working as well as I thought it should. I
tried it a couple times, just using a little, but it felt
like the rim around the stick was pinching my skin.

I used it again a couple of days ago, right after coming
out of the shower. Since I'm having a problem with hot
flashes, and sweating (for the first time in my life)
I put a lot of it on. I noticed that same sting that
I thought was due to the rim pinching my skin, and
went on my way. But my armpits kept stinging and
and felt like they were on fire. Hours later, I looked
at my pits in the mirror and see what looks and feels
like burns. I've been using burn creme
with lidocane to help with the pain.

I wasn't sure what was going on so I googled 'deodorant
burning armpits' and the second hit was "Top 64 Complaints
and Reviews about Old Spice"

Consumers Affairs

That is what I used! Turns out there are a lot of people
who have had this same problem!

"Old spice deodorant causing chemical burns" brought up A LOT of hits!

I don't know exactly which ingredient is responsible,
but I'll be sure to never use this again .

My guess would be the Atomic Laser Robots, but that's just on first blush.

That sucks. I've used it every day for years and never had a problem at all. It's one of the few that work for me, so I hope you can find one that works for you!

My husband has used it for a long time and hasn't ever had this problem either.
I don't really have sensitive skin, so I'm really not sure why some people have
this reaction and others don't.

Yup! Happened to me too with their original scent. I just stopped buying it.

Gave me rashes, burning and it lasted for over two weeks. I never looked it up so I didn't give it a second thought.

I can't use it or Speed stick. The burn lasts all damn day.

Thought I was the only one.

Don't know what happened, as I used to use both with no problems. But now that I'm older than dirt (38), just looking at either one makes my armpits burn!

I just seen this tread that brought up Old Spice Deodorant the other day, I wonder if this is the ingredient that may be causing these chemical burns;Commonly used soaps and toothpastes possible cause of cancer


Triclosan [5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol; TCS] is a synthetic, broad-spectrum antibacterial chemical used in a wide range of consumer products

Products That Contain Triclosan


Deodorant:
* Old Spice High Endurance Stick Deodorant
* Right Guard Sport Deodorant
* Queen Helene® Tea Trea Oil Deodorant and Aloe Deodorant
* Nature De France Le Stick Natural Stick Deodorant
* DeCleor Deodorant Stick
* Epoch® Deodorant with Citrisomes
* X Air Maximum Strength Deodorant

Another website that i thought was interesting is maybe these chemical burns and rashes could be an allergic reaction


Children with the highest urinary levels of triclosan experienced twice the risk of environmental allergies compared to kids with the lowest levels. "The link between allergy risk and antimicrobial exposure suggests that these agents may disrupt the delicate balance between beneficial and bad bacteria in the body, and lead to immune system dysregulation, which in turn raises the risk of allergies," explains study author Jessica Savage, MD, an allergy and immunology fellow at Johns Hopkins.

I am a big beliver of the "more you wash the more you smell priniple."

Not everyones cup of tea and not something everyone can adhere to but I find If I do manual work after showering I reek but If I dont shower and just have a quick wash then I don't drip horrible sweat that stinks.

It's ats after all so I call conspiracy

Perhaps its because your female and shave your pits. Only guessing here and might be way wrong. But that might have something to do with it? Aka broken skin and rash.

Happened to me too. Had to wash it off at work. It left a burn mark for a week or so.
Only used it that one time.

All deodorants and antiperspirants are harmful.

Theres better natural ways to deal with body odor, peppermint oil is one i use it works great and its refreshing.

It says on the label "DO NOT APPLY TO BROKEN SKIN. IF RASH OR IRRITATION OCCURS, DISCONTINUE USE".

Some people are more sensitive to the ingredients as others so stop using it.
Simple as that.

a reply to: Pardon?

You act like it's my fault....or the fault of every other person who
used this product and was burned from it.

I didn't have broken skin, and it isn't a rash or irritation. It's a burn.

I made this post to make others aware that it could happen
to them too.

These are the images of people's burns from this stuff.

Some guys are just wimps.

(Actually, although it never burned my skin, I generally don't use Old Spice because it makes my eyes water.)

You may be on to something with that chemical, I've used Old Spice for 30 years then noticed a burning and slight redness about 3 years ago, so switched to Right Guard sport and noticed it continue, switched to Arm&Hammer unscented with no problem once tried the XAir and burning returned. Currently tried Axe and noticed a slighter case of burning but no redness, I have even tried using those products by applying directly to a tshirt prior to wearing and notice that burning sensation will return upon sweating and tshirt getting wet.

Originaly I thought prolonged use had caused the product to become an irritant, now thinking it may be a change in chemical makeup of product/products

Just to add another product to the list, I once used Gillette (shaving) cream for sensitive skin, and I got a chemical burn on my face plus it burned so badly I had to put my whole face under water constantly to ease the pain

I never suffered any burn marks or blemishes at all but what did happen to me was my armpits got hot ......really hot but I never had any signs of damage.
I quit using it and all was good almost immediately afterwards. What I use now is called Thai deodorant stones and they work great and last almost a year for about $8.00 in Canada.
Below is a link that might prove useful to some posters on this thread.

ETA
If an aluminum compound, such as aluminum chlorhydrate or aluminum zirconium, which is very soluble, is used as an antiperspirant, that compound is readily absorbed. Once in the body, the aluminum portion of the molecule ionizes, forming free or radical aluminum (Al+++). This passes freely across cell membranes, and forms a physical plug, that when dissolved is selectively absorbed by the liver, kidney, brain, cartilage and bone marrow. It is this concentration of aluminum that has been the source of concern in the medical community and has prompted the research being done on ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE and BREAST CANCER victims. Potassium alum molecules have a negative ionic charge, making it unable to pass through the cell wall. THEY ARE NOT ABSORBED. This is why our deodorants are safe to use and will not cause high levels of ALUMINUM in your system. ALUM and ALUMINUM are two different substances, with distinct chemical signatures. They possess different chemical properties which create different chemical attributes.

We hope this information helps to dispel some of the misunderstandings about ALUM and puts your mind at ease about the safety of all of DSA's deodorant products.

If you read the label on all deoderant it says may cause irritation, and it says to stop use if said irritation happens.

Just switch to a different brand and you should be fine.

if you don't mind a bit of sweat but don't want to stink then try a teaspoon of coconut oil or olive or cooking oil and teaspoon of baking soda mix together then rub on your pits, works a treat. Can have no shower for three days and still no stink. Smell ya later
