He might also try using a mixture of baking soda and cornstarch. The baking soda neutralizes odor while the cornstarch helps with wetness.

I hope that he finds something that works!
No I don't think he's allergic to it. I'll check it out.

Yeah, I'd try a 100% all natural deodorant. I hear terra naturals is good.

He may just have allergies causd by deordorants(allergies type 1, contact allergies).

Common vitamins can actually help, along with green tea,quercitin, zinc.
LOL....Funny.

Thanks

The 2 I tried, both worked for me, are Tom's of Maine sensitive care aluminun-free deodorant stick and Dove Ultimate sensitivecare fragrance free antiprespirant stick.

I have extremely sensitive skin and I've tried all kinds of deodorants, antiperspirants, etc., even those billed as natural and organic. The best one I've tried (for me) is Dove's sensitive skin. I used to itch madly with whatever I've used, or get welts but I have no problems with this one.

My dad is also allergic to antiperspirants and has used the Crystal salt stick for several years. It's worked really well and I've never noticed any BO from him (except obviously, when working extremely hard -- but even regular deodorants struggle there).

I have the same kind of reaction and am allergic to deodorant. The ONLY one I can use is "Ban". The Ban that is the original (no fragrance) roll-on. I suggest him trying that one.

I find that rubbing alcohol makes a good deodorant. I've read that lemon juice also works, although I haven't tried it.
