Read This if Your Underarm is Itchy after Using Deodorant (alodokter)

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - If your armpit is experiencing itchiness or small breaks or boils appear as soon as you use a deodorant product, you need to stop using the body deodorizing product.

Stop (the product usage) first. Let the underarm skin recover first for several weeks, "said dermatologist from the Indonesian Skin and Gender Specialist Association (Perdoski) Melyawati Hermawan.

According to the doctor who is familiarly called Mely, the breakdown is a sign that the skin is uncomfortable with the deodorant products used.

You also need to pay attention to the underarm condition. Does it feel itchy, feels hot, and looks red or dark? If so, it means your skin is irritated and can be classified as sensitive skin.

In sensitive skin, inflammation is easier to occur. You should choose products that do not contain perfume, parabens, lanolin and propylene glycol because they trigger irritation. "(Ingredients) in  perfumes most often cause irritation, the effect of burning if it is too strong. But the complaints of people are different," said Mely.
