I will get right to the point. I have allergies, primarily environmental, which are bothersome most times, but I manage to control the reactions with medication or avoiding situations that will bring on an attack. The problem which I have now is that I have developed allergies to the ingredients in deodorants and antiperspirants. (Fortunately for y'all odors cannot be detected through the computer) I have tried a variety of products and the reaction is the same; severe redness and soreness that even prevents me from raising my arms even to shoulder level. Consequently I do not apply any product to my pits. Do any of you use some of the natural products that are marketed? If so, where do you purchase your antiperspirants and what are the names of these products? I would prefer to buy off of the shelf. Mail order can be a nuisance. Your responses will definitely be appreciated, particularly by anyone who happens to be in close proximity to me!
