    Default What deodorant to use for sensitive skin?

    I stopped hsing deodorant a couple of years ago on drs advice after getting sore red weepy patches under my arms. I still use impulse body spray, just don't spray it under my arms.

    However being pregnant and getting towards summer I am starting to stink!! I've tried hypoallergenic roll ons, those sped stick things and some tea tree roll on but I react to them all. I could use a speed stick for a while but then got sore and weepy again.

    Any suggestions of what i could use?

    My mum gets a type of cyst thing under her arms and can't use normal stuff. She uses a "crystal" type one you get from the health food store, it's like a soils thing and you wet it a little and roll it on if that makes sense.

    I have very sensitive skin and have good results from the Nivea creme roll ons.

    Salt crystal can also be very good it works by minimising the bacteria on the skin that makes sweat smell and as long as they are pure salt they should never cause irritation.

    I make my own with bicarb and coconut oil, it's great. Hope you find something that works

    Does it stop (or decrease) you sweating? Or just stop BO?

    Another vote here for the crystal ones, I got mine from Coles, I had to stop using everything as I was going crazy with itching. Decided to try the crystal one and haven't had an issue since.
    Wasted so much money on ones that were supposed to be for sensitive skin!
