My son got horrible rashes from Old Spice deodorants. We put a claim online and what did they do? They sent us coupons for free Old Spice products. What? So silly me, thinking the “Gentle” man's deodorant that is now on store shelves would be safe…nope! Worse rash than before. Unbelievable. How about Old Spice giving me my money back, or paying for the products I had to purchase to help my son's painful rash. The pain and unnecessary suffering my 16 year old son is going through is horrible. Shame on you!!!
My son has massive red burns under each armpit. I couldn’t figure out what it was and took him to the dr who prescribed him a topical steroid. It only got worse and even more painful. He can’t play sports because the friction hurts too bad. He mentioned it to his friends and someone mentioned the chemical burn so I did some research. It’s painful not itchy, def at least 2-3rd degree burns. He’s been using Old Spice for over a year without issues...clearly they distributed a bad batch. I can’t believe this stuff is still on shelves!

I normally use women's deodorant, but I decided to give Old Spice a try. (I loved the scent). So after my nightly routine, I applied the deodorant. When I awoke the following morning I had a severe burning sensation under my right arm. I got up, looked in the mirror and noticed a massive chemical burn was starting to form. It's been 4 days now and I'm seeing no signs of improvement, antibiotics, cream, agony, tears. I've never experienced something so terribly painful in my life. Needless to say after doing some research and finding out others have experienced the exact same thing, I'm not too happy with Old Spice.
I've got this product (Old Spice - Swagger) last week and noticed my armpit area started itching, burning and also developed these red rashes around the area. Initially, I thought this was just me experiencing an allergic reaction to some ingredients but when I looked up online for some remedies to treat my rashes, I was really surprised to see so many consumers were affected and had the exact same side effects. It blows my mind that the deodorant is still being sold and available at any store. Just shows the 'extensive' research that goes into a product at P&G. I'll stay away from that deodorant and the company.
I have been using Old Spice for years and ever since they switched to the new bottles I have realized the quality has went down and the quantity for the same price. I guess it's time to switch products
After using Old Spice Alpine with hemp seed deodorant I broke out in a severe chemical burn in both armpits & chest. The irritation from the itch caused sleepless nights. Doctor prescribed meds to no avail. I understand why a class action lawsuit was filed.
I have been using Old Spice for the past two years and noticed in the past year my armpits became very itchy. I recently developed a painful, burning red rash on my armpits. I used many different scents, Tropics, Fiji, Timber, Deep Sea. All caused the red rash. I threw out the deodorant and got a different brand.
I've been using Old Spice Pure Sport for years and I'm disappointed when last week I started to develop a painful rash under my arms. I couldn't figure out what to do. Every time I applied more it would burn until I had to see my doctor.
Long-time user of Old Spice. Recently used Pure Endurance after a shower. The skin near my armpits started burning. I looked in the mirror and it was all red and rashy. I immediately threw out the deodorant and applied Polysporin. The entire week my skin was peeling and I had to apply ointment.
I purchased the lavender gel-like deodorant from Target not even a week ago. I used the product once and got horrible chemical burns under one of my arms. It’s so incredibly painful and has blistered as well as becoming very red and irritated. I’m really disappointed.
