Deodorants and allergies???

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had an allergic reaction to the Addidas CottonTech deodorants? I've been using the stuff for about 3 months now and loved it until about a week ago when I developed irrritation under one of my arms and now both are red. I am never allergic to things and it will seriously suck if this is what I am allergic to because I was so happy to find something without aluminum that actually worked for me. msncry.gif

Never used it, but I wonder if that is what is causing the reaction since you've been using it so long without trouble. Are you using a different razor or anything else new and different?

I went thru a list in my head of things that I may have changed in the past few weeks and nada... Same type of moisturizers, razors, shower gel, etc. The deodorant is the most recent brand change. I am going to switch back to my old stuff for a month and then going to switch back to the new stuff. I do hope I can rule it out. My FI tells me we been together so long that his sensitive skin is rubbing off on me.

Out of curiosity, did you just get a new stick of the deodorant? I ask because I go thru one about every 3 months, and I'm wondering if they changed the formula a bit. If so, that might be the source of the redness.

If you're only red under your arms, its probably a sensitivity to the deodorant... sorry sad.gif I'm allergic to Dove deodorant, and it was the most uncomfortable feeling! I feel for you girl!

Another thing you might want to check is the expiration date. I really never even knew that deodorant had an expiration date until I discovered it while dropping mine one day. Then I noticed that some brands have them & some don't.

Nope, was coming to the end of this one. I was about to go out and buy a new one. I am going back to the stuff I used before this new brand.

Unfortunately there's no expiration date on the Addidas stuff I had, just a made in Canada stamp.

I"ll figure it out eventually. Thanks for the input. :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
