It is possible that the deodorant caused the reaction. Do you recall, when you had this reaction previously, did you use the gel deodorant. It might be that the gel deodorant caused some type of contact dermatitis. Possibly something in the deodorant formula was the cause. I would avoid using the gel deodorant. Also, maybe try some warmer water cloth applications.
