Enonymous - that won't work with most allergic reactions. If someone were allergic to peanuts and had accidentally eaten one, would you tell them to have a glass of water? My sister has an allergy to poison ivy (far worse than most people), touching something that has been in contact with poison ivy, even after it has been washed, has still given her hives on occasion.

73 - I take it you've never had an allergic reaction? Depending on the severity it can be complete agony. The itching can get so terrible it'll drive you mad. Scratching things usually does make it worse, but in some situations it's practically unavoidable.

OP, I would have stopped whatever I was doing & gone to a doctor. F that, your boss can get the hell over it! Medical needs first.

165 - I would hope you're not talking to me? Because that's a picture of my roommate & I from last spring...

Haven't you worn deodorant before? I know a lot of them give me rashes, so I haven't changed the stuff I buy since I first started using deodorant way back when.

FYLD, I'm surprised at you! You've been around here long enough to know that allergies can develop over time. Although I must admit I always thought that only applied to food allergies myself so I'm completely talking out my arse. I'll leave that to DocB or anyone else more learned on the subject.

I used to switch all the time but it did make for sensitive skin. It pays to be loyal to your hygiene products, apparently.

A spontaneous allergy over 1 day sounds suspicious. I would think that if you started developing an allergy your skin would gradually become more irritated. Not to go from fine to unbearable all at once.

Perhaps OP bought new deoterant? anyway I'm gona say YDI for iching. Hmm my armpits are REALLY ichy so I'm gona keep scratching them instead of going to a doctor or finding a home remedy. Are people that stupid with their health these days?

I agree as well. You could have scratched using what I call the cross method. You use your finger nails to put a cross in what's itching so you don't open yourself up.

While I see your point, itching is often done subconciously if the itch is that severe.
The rash itself also could have caused the rawness and bloodiness, I've had allergic reactions like that.

My deodorant gave me rashes too, but luckily I didn't bleed like OP. I wouldn't blame them for scratching it. It actually starts to hurt if you don't scratch... I had to go through 5 different kinds before I realized unscented was the only one that doesn't give you a rash -_-

So don't scratch. That won't make it better anyway, in fact, it will make it tons worse. Keep looking for a deodorant that doesn't do this, and hope you're luckier than I am - I haven't found one yet, so gotta put up with the itch.
