Itchy spots: More than likely these are irritated or allergy caused lesions by one or more of the possibilities you raised. A yeast infection is a less likely cause.Start with avoiding the use of the deodorant until lesions clear up & then change to another. A nonprescription strength corticosteroid ointment may help. Avoid tight fitting garments. See a dermatologist as needed if not improved.
