I am having under arm drama ladies! They are inflamed burning and red. I have used natural deodorant or my own homemade for over a year now and everything is iritating it. I did a little reading and saw that some ppl develop reactions to baking soda, so that could be the culprit with the homemade goods. Anyone have any miracle cures? These pits are uber stinky. help me!
TMI: my pits are the pits
Before I got pregnant and the first few months, I had this red inflammation in my pits. My naturopath and a dermatologist swore it was yeast. So we did yeast things (OTC fungal treatment and a cream the dermatologist prescribed). Nothing cleared it. Then my naturopath suggested chickweed, that didn't help me, but it might help you. In the end, what cleared it for me was a prescription for hydrocortisone. I hate using drugs esp during pregnancy, but by then I was desperate, I didn't know what else to do.
Thank you for all the input. My under arms aren't totally healed but I think I found the culprit. It was a burn from peppermint EO in a soap. I still haven't worn any deo but have had good luck with a scented body powder (no talc or baking soda) from etsy. Maybe after the weekend I can try some deodorant.
