Stop using the deodr

stop using the deodorant first. if it does not heal up then you may need to be evaluated by an allergist or a dermatologist to see what kind of a rash it is, and what may be causing it.

How can armpit deodorant be associated with kidney disease?

Aluminum

Kidney_disease
They contain aluminum which is not a good chemical for people with kidney failure. I am not aware that its absorbed in major amount from deodorants.

Armpit smells without sweating and with deodorant/antisperant applied. How is that possible ?

Normal

Sweating_
This is normal. Try switching deodorant as this sometimes helps. Try "clinical strength" products. Also realize that everyone has an odor & it's only our culture that makes this a "problem". There are lots of pheromones in sweat that actually are shown to be attractive to the opposite sex. Do NOT overreact and douse yourself with perfume. Good luck!

My armpits, hands and feet sweat a lot and even clinical protection deodorant doesn't help my armpit sweat. Any suggestions?

Sweating

Axilla
I would reduce eating and drinking anything with Caffeine . That will help some. Regarding feet you can ask your doctor about Rx Drysol . There is a surgical procedure that can be done for the armpit sweating but you would need to see a specialist for that and have a consult

Switched deodorant and got painful bumps under armpit..stop using new deodorant and finally went away..and now coming back again?

Underarm

Deodorant
Try switching to a deodorant that does not have any antiperspirant. You may have become sensitive to aluminum chlorohydrate. Not unusual. Try Mennen speed stick with no antiperspirant and regular scent. It has a green top. Also could be a reaction to perfume scent in deodorant.

Armpit are super sore from deodorants. Am I allergic? I can't wear any deodorant without my armpits getting sore but I'll stink if I don't.

Zinc

Deodorant
Many deodorants contain zinc or aluminum, and these can cause allergic reactions in some people. To be sure, you'll need patch testing by a dermatologist or allergist. Try finding deodorants with zinc or aluminum. Good luck

Possible

So you may want to try non chemical deodorants and or laser hair removal. On occasion salicylic acid (tendskin) may help minimize these inflamed bumps.

My left armpit smells even after I shower and out on deodorant but my right one beverages does and it is always itchy do you know what will help?

?rash

Itch
Is there a rash with the itching? If so there could be a yeast infection which would require treatment with an anti-yeast cream or ointment(such as lotrimin). Lotrisone is a prescription preparation which has a steroid mixed with it and gives relief of the itching as well. See your physician if symptoms persist.

Fiancé has problems with armpit odor and sweat, she's tried multiple men's and women's deodorant that doesn't seem to help, any ideas how to help?

Other possibilities

Deodorant
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be a signal of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection.It is also more common in people who are overweight or out of shape.Some people naturally sweat more or less than others.Treating hyperhidrosis generally goes from OTC antiperspirants to prescription antiperspirants, microwave destruction of sweat glands, botox and surgery. Can consult dermatologist.
