Once the cause is removed it can take anywhere between a week or two weeks for the inflammatory products to dissipate from your system. Once the inflammatory products are gone then the redness and itchiness should resolve. ...Read more

Rheumatology: While it is possible you might have had a reaction to your deodorant; the presence of a rash, pain and swelling in the joints can also suggest a possible rheumatologist condition, such as lupus for example. So if it does not clear up quickly, you might benefit from a rheumatologist workup. ...Read more
