Default Deodorant & burning pits

I have sensitive arm pits and need to be careful what I put on them. Mitchem usually works well and lately I have been using Tom's which is aluminum free. Tonight I took a shower and about 20 minutes later I out a couple swipes of Tom's on the pits and about 30 minutes later whike eating dinner my pits were on fire. I tried to wipe off the deodorant with my shirt and any time the skin touched the other side it was burning. I finally went to the bathroom and put water all over my pits to "cool" them off. Then I wiped them with a paper towels and they cooled off. But even still 4 hours later, still feel sme burning.

This wasn't the first time I had that type of reaction but it doesn't happen all the time.

Anyone else have this issue? What kind of deodorant do you guys use? I can't go anywhere near Old Spice or Gillette, it will light up my pits like there's no tomorrow. Talking to my dad he has a similar issue but doesn't sound nearly bad. He just can't use clear deodorants. I have had burning with both clear and solid.

I can't use old spice either.

Honestly ... And I can care less, my wife's deodorant works fine for me, esp if we're in a hotel for the weekend and I forget to pack it

Lately the only one that works is axe and right guard

I find that I have to switch it up or can get the burning pits too. Use crystals for a couple of days, then something else. Sometimes I'll go natural for a while and hope it doesn't get too bad before I can clean up a bit.

Try Clinique for men. Send your wife to the mall for it.

I don't like the texture or occasional flakes but no more irritation.

I've been using Mitchum unscented gel sold in three packs at BJ's. It seems to be pretty gentle on the skin and it doesn't have any perfume so you don't smell like a french whore (I can't stand the scented stuff).

White solids, I use Degree, like the cool rush, and can normally buy it in twin packs ( I shower at least twice a day so I go through a lot). It's strong enough to work but doesn't lite up my pits. I used old spice for years but had a really bad reaction one day, won't go back near the stuff now.

I have extremely sensitive pits. I tried everything including mitchum, toms, all organic, unscented, solid, gel, spray, literally every brands sensitive. I gave up on all "mens" deodorant after my pits would itch so bad they would start to bleed. After a few weeks of going all natural and stinking it up at the end of the day, I finally decided to try deodorant again. I grabbed a stick of Secret Clinical Strength Sensitive and haven't looked back for several years now. It's a small stick and expensive as hell but it's the only thing I've ever found. No more reactions.

I have the same problem as you. I am fine as long as I stay with the white solids. The green solids will light me up.

White solids, all the way. Unscented is even better, might as well eliminate unnecessary additives.

Wow! I can't believeso many guys have the same issue! It's gotten so bad that if I am just being home, I don't wear any deodorant. My dad said he can only use white solids. I will have to try your suggestions and pick one that works well. Thank you guys!

In the off chance this was about bbq and sweating I opened this threat.
Really? What are you "Sensitive" metro sexuals doing? Shaving your pits? Slap on some Mobil one 5w-30 and call it a day.

how is deodorant about BBQs? Call me metro all you want but my pits light up.

By the way guys I went with Crystall that was at the nature food star when I was there with my wife. So far so good. No burning. Maybe though I'll try 5w-30 as well!
