I purchased the original Old Spice along with others. The soft powder and gel are completely fine. However when I use their product that is the solid blue gel doesn’t matter which fragrance. It will leave a horrendous burn. A few years ago I used the bear glove scent and my burn was so bad after just a few applications that I missed a week of work cause I could even lift my arms. I was continuously draining pus from the burn that became infected. I just used a different fragrance thinking it would be alright since it was the original fragrance. Boy was I wrong. I work for the post office and I can hardly lift packages with the burns. A deodorant shouldn’t have such a negative impact on someone’s life like this. STAY AWAY! From this product. I wish I could submit a photo of my armpits now.

I've been using Old Spice for 20 years. Tried a new gel kind and my armpits are on fire and red chemical burns around my armpits! Crazy! I will never buy Old Spice again! After reading other reviews it seems I'm not the only one! Shame on you Old Spice!

This product burned my pits! What the heck is in this deodorant? I've used this one for a couple weeks now and thought it was weird that it felt like it was burning and sure enough... it is! I liked the smell but didn't like the burning!

31wm. I've used Old Spice Swagger the solid...for years. But around the holidays it burned me. At first I thought I was crazy so I tossed it out and got the gel...way way worse. Now I have burns in both of my pits, good times! I'm done with Old Spice, seems like everything is trying to kill us these days...crazy world.

I've recently started using the Old Spice Captain clear stick, and have developed a rash/burn of sorts. I've used Old Spice gel deodorants in the past but it seems that the clear stick is different and I have decided to stop using it.

My Son and I ended up getting a Big Rash for weeks by using Old Spice Fresh and it's something that really gets me mad because this is time and money that customers spend to give Old Spice Business and too many people are suffering from Rashes. I Have pictures to prove them and would like to Sue the Company but since the Company is already in a Lawsuit, who knows if I can do anything about it.

For the last 8 or 9 years I've use Old Spice gel deodorant. Well about maybe less than a year I've had to change from gel to the white deodorant because I've had many times where I used the gel deodorant and wake up with my armpits burning and stained and some skin falling. It hurts and doesn't make me satisfied with the products.

I got terrible chemical burns from using Old Spice Gel Deodorant! I have taken care of it, yet after a week it still hurts so bad to move my arm, and changing clothes and showering is the most painful thing! DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!

My boyfriend has deodorants laying around & every once in awhile, I’ll use one. I’ve got this weird rash looking thing a couple times but never knew why. Monday morning after the shower, I used his Old Spice and almost instantly my armpit started burning. Throughout the day it got worse and this was it the next morning. VERY PAINFUL - not itchy or anything, just burns. It’s been 4 days now and it is still completely there and stingy constantly.

I have used Old Spice Pure Sport gel deodorant as well shower wash in the past few months. The deodorant destroyed my underarms, the shower wash no problem. I stop both. Used the deodorant - within an hour my underarms were so inflamed it was unreal. Since that happen I still use the wash but switched to a different brand of deodorant (**). No more issues. At the time I felt it was me but seeing the other post - well you be the judge.

I have been a long time user of Old Spice Pure Sport High Endurance deodorant and I too have experienced the itching rashes that hurt to even put my arms down. I just thought it was me because I never had an issue until after I had surgery on my foot for a calcaneus fracture about spring of 2009. I just thought my body chemistry changed somehow but after reading all the reviews I've seen I'm convinced that they somehow changed the ingredients and my body doesn't like it. I have used other brands with no issues but keep coming back to old spice only to get those nasty burns. I really like the smell but not the burning rashes. Seems fine in cooler months but really burns me in warm months.

I used Old Spice Swagger deodorant for a really long time. I liked the smell of it and it lasted a long time. Until I started getting rashes under my armpits that felt like my armpits was on fire. I couldn't hardly put my arms down because it hurt so bad. And I started feeling knots under my armpits that started bothering me also. It was the worst pain I felt in a long time.

After using Old Spice for some time my armpits started to itch really bad and they kept burning to the point where they would start to bleed. After I had stopped using this deodorant and went to Dove the itching stopped. I started to use Old Spice again and it just started over.

I have constantly used Old Spice swagger deodorant for a couple months until I had a bad feeling under my armpit. It started off as a burning sensation so I stopped using it for a while 'til the feeling went away. Then it got worse. I had a knot to come under my armpit to the point where it had to be busted open. I still have the scars under my armpit from this deodorant.

I have tried each of the following Old Spice products and mainly the BearGlove, LionPride burned making my underarms raw to the point of having to leave work so I go home and wash it off and thinking it was only me all this time. But after visiting with others the subject came up about Old Spice Deodorant to hear others reporting the same issues in which I had no idea. Searched the internet to discover others had the same exact symptoms. Switched over to FIJI and it just stopped working halfway through the day and then switched over to Pure Sport to see that it also stops working. I only kept the BearGlove & LionPride as a reminder of what NOT to purchase nor use anymore. I can't believe Old Spice would do this to people instead of being more concerned of their profit margin. After finding this I will no longer use Old Spice or Proctor & Gamble deodorant products.

My boyfriend and I both started using the Pure sport deodorant during the summer. We got two of them and each had our own. Within a few days I noticed my armpits were red and felt very raw. It took my boyfriend a few more weeks than mine did but the same thing started happening to him. We got a different brand and used it and it cleared up completely. This past week I ran out and had no choice but to use the Pure Sport again and within HOURS my arms were very red and sore and I could barely lift my arms up without being in excruciating pain. It just stings and burns! This should not be sold and I’m obviously not the only person having an issue with this!

Was using Old Spice regular deodorant without any issues. Ran out and purchased the pure sport plus antiperspirant (by accident), and now my armpits are burning with dark red marks all over, almost looks like shingles! Really burns in shower and when trying to put on regular deodorant in the mornings. Now I recall having this same exact same issue in the past when using a certain Old Spice deodorant. These types of deodorants should not be allowed to be sold!!! Horrible experience.

Earlier this year my boyfriend started using a different kind of Old Spice. It was the presses powder one. It didn’t have a huge smell. It seemed harmless... He was wrong. The chemical burns were so severe he could not even lift his arm or wear anything with sleeves for almost two weeks!!! We treated with Aloe Vera and calamine lotion. Typical remedies.

Here we are now towards the end of the year and he has since switched to gel product. I have started to use Old Spice myself as I do not find the girl products to be as deodorizing and last as long as the female products in the same department. I’m highly upset because now I am having a chemical burn under both arms... I’ve tried to reach out to Old Spice numerous times... only to be put on a long hold of which I don’t feel as a consumer with an issue such as mine should have to wait. Can we at least, as consumers, get answers as to why your product is burning our skin Old Spice??? You were put under fire of a lawsuit in 2016 for the same thing!!! Either pull your product off of shelves or start compensating your consumers for their pain and suffering!!!

I bought Old Spice deodorant earlier in the year and after using it for a couple of days I developed an underarm rash. It itched and burned to the extent that I couldn't sleep at night. Fast forward to Sep 2018: I ran out of the deodorant I had been using and picked up the Old Spice again. After just one application the rash came back again. I've tried several ointments, but still have the rash. This is a dangerous product that should not be sold to the public. Is there a class action suit? I would like to join it.

My Name is Andres **, resident in Tarrytown, NY. A few days ago I started using Old Spice KRAKENGARD fragrance, and this caused me severe burns in both of my armpits. I cannot sleep because of the irritation and because there have been some lacerations in this area. This area is very dark and irritated. I use this product in my house with my children, and they have caused the same reaction. It is necessary and urgent that this product be removed from the market and that legal actions be taken against this company for selling this type of product with chemicals that harm our health.

I normally use Gillette deodorant but ran out and picked up an Old Spice Pure sport. Was using it for a week or two and then all the sudden got huge chemical burns inside both armpits. I stopped using it immediately because it hurt so bad. It’s to the point of weeping and oozing constantly. Nothing is easing the pain and burning! I can barely move my arms. Parts are starting to dry out and scab but once I put my arms down and then up, they rip back open. I don’t have particularly sensitive skin so this was a shock. Quickly search online and found this has happened a lot! Needs to be recalled!

My 17 year old daughter started using Old Spice deodorant this spring, and broke out with horrific rash / burns under her arms. Nothing will make it go away, now it is weeping and cracking, and VERY painful. She is in so much pain from the product. We are finally going to the dermatologist to hopefully get relief. Hoping as a now 18 year old, she does not end up with scars from this product as others have. I called Old Spice and they just took my info, and offered to give me $5 to cover the cost of the product. Really?

I’ve used Old Spice for years and loved it. My wife enjoyed the scent, I enjoyed the classic look and feel. But beginning a few weeks ago, I began to notice a light red rash. I’ve had dermatitis in the past so I assumed that was the case and never figured it might be the deodorant. If only I’d stopped using it then. The reaction got VERY bad last week, and by the time I realized it was the Old Spice causing it, my armpits looked and felt like they had second degree burns. There’s even a yellowing of the skin in places that aren’t bright red. I’m assuming scabs will be next. There’s something very wrong with this product and people need to know about it.

My girlfriend purchased some Old Spice Ambassador deodorant on the 16th of May 2018. I started using it as of the 17th of May. I sometimes used it once or twice per day. On Tuesday May 22 I felt something under my armpits that felt like a scratch. When I got home from work I checked my armpit and my armpit was almost burnt. There was a rash and some blistering. Looks like Old Spice might be putting some kind of acid in their products. This has never happened to me in my life before. First and last time using Old Spice. I don’t recommend it to anyone.

Even if you smell like feet you’re better off not wearing anything than getting this acid burn under your armpits. I leave for a vacation next week and thanks to Old Spice I won’t enjoy it. Thanks to the burns I got under my armpits. I called Old Spice and they want to send me a 5$ gift card when it already costed me 10$ for cream to try and stop the pain. DON'T EVER USE ANY OF THE P&G PRODUCTS. I will definitely look into the class action lawsuit they have against them and I would like to see what I can do.

Decided to try Old Spice Fresh deodorant after a sale advertisement at a local store. After using for 2 days, I developed an underarm rash with burning and itching. Stopped using it, and the rash appeared lighter in appearance after using zinc oxide cream. Itching has eased as well. Contacted P&G, where they issued a Visa gift card in the amount of the deodorant price to satisfy me. Decided To go on the web to check about others affected. I have not activated the gift card.

My son have the talk about puberty at school 3 weeks ago and they gave him the sample deodorant from Old Spice Swagger. He came home all excited that he told me to go to the store to go buy the shower wash and body spray. The day after that he started getting hives all over his body. I had to take him to the doctor and he told me that is was because he was using something new and yes he had started to use the Old Spice Swagger line.

This is by far the most corrupt corperation I have ever come in contact with. They deliberately keep these horrendous products on the market when they cause so much pain. I used Old Spice deodorant, specifically the "Fresh" brand, and after the first three uses I got severe lacerations and chemical burns under both arms. I was in some of the most severe pain I have ever experienced, and couldn't move my arms. This is ridiculous! These products must be annihilated from the market! Never should you EVER buy any products by Old Spice. And I never will support this company in ANY way, ever again.

I used my husband's Old Spice Pure Sport as I ran out of my deodorant. A few hours later I felt pain and burning in my armpit and I had dark red rash. Beyond the pain it started oozing the next day and I had to wrap gauze around and under my arm to be able to tolerate the pain. I've had reaction to cosmetics before, but never this bad. This product should be called back.

My son has used Old Spice in the past and had no issues. He used the Fiji one on 3/23/18 and it severely burnt under his arms. There are a lot of people who are having this issue so why has this been going on for a few years now? This is a very bad product and everyone should stop using any P&G products altogether. They obviously do not care about their customers so why should we care about their business...

My 18 yr old son has worn this. First day noticed a tingling/burning feeling. Second day little red. Today he is on fire! Blood red and blistered up around the armpits. His first time using Old Spice product deodorant and he has a chemical burn. He cannot put his arms down and literally crying in pain. This is a boy that has broken many bones before but this has brought the tears! We tried washing the area, big mistake! Used our sprayer at sink with cold water. Put burn cream on it. That did not work. Made it worse. I have now put A & D ointment on it. That has soothed him for the moment. I also called the # on the back of the product. No help. Just acted like I was stupid & it was his skin that had the problem. It wasn’t the product. My son is in pain & it looks horrible!! I’m not the first person to have a complaint of this product. Something needs to be done!!

The deodorant said 'original scent' and it's not even near. I've used Old Spice for 50 years. It was once the Shulton Co. Since this garbage dump P&G in garbage dump Cincinnati bought it it's gone downhill ever since. How dare they claim it's the same stuff as it was years ago! They put some kind of weird fragrance in it this time that I can't recognize and I don't like it. They are liars. Now I see they are creating even more problems. The Shulton Co also had very attractive packaging too.

I used Old Spice's Aqua Reef deodorant on 1/21/18, a few hours later, my underarms were red and irritated. Over the next few days, the irritation worsened. To the point of blistering and peeling. I have had to seek medical advice for the issue and have been in SEVERE pain. The company is negligent in ensuring their product is safe for consumers. For some reason the left armpit has fared much worse than the right, and the irritation is around the perimeter of the underarm and not the center... It still HURTS LIKE HELL. Pictures do not do this injury justice as you can't see the raw red 'meat' in the creases. I was forced to select 1 star, but this product is in the negative and so is Old Spice (P&G) for lacking to care for consumer safety.

After 4 years of using Old Spice I now have chemical burns under both arms from using Old Spice Fiji deodorant. It's painful to move, even just sitting doing nothing my skin was burning. I have painful burning and peeling in several areas. It's crazy that this is happening to so many people but Old Spice refuses to claim any responsibility, claiming that we are only sensitive to their product. I've been using Old Spice for years and it just now burned me. It is painful and horrible to go through, I can only think of the lasting scars I will have. Absolute worst.

I used Old Spice High endurance for years and would sometimes experience mild burning sensation and heavy rashes until August of 2017 when I applied it in the morning after the shower, minutes later in starting to burn, this had happened before so I didn’t think much of it, by lunch time, all I could concentrate on was how much my armpits burned. I hopped in the shower in the early evening and when the water hit my armpits it felt like fire. I jumped out of the shower and looked in the mirror to see BOTH armpits extremely red, bumpy and blistered.

By the next morning I had awoken to SEVERE chemical burns that were completely raw, skin peeling off and turning greenish brown, bleeding and oozing fluid from the side of my chest all the way to my inner bicep!!! This was the most painful 6 days of my life! I tried to contact the company via email and telephone and never got anywhere...BUYER BEWARE!!! I know several people who this has also happened to, not as severe but still happened nonetheless. You shouldn’t have to worry about frigging chemical burns while applying deodorant!!! I’ve been using a different line of the old spice brand deodorant and have had no problems. DO NOT USE OLD SPICE HIGH ENDURANCE LINE!!!! The photo attached is of the actual scarring that took place! Photo was taken a month after the burns healed!!!

I have been using Old Spice for many many years, the last one I used was Pure Sport High Endurance. I put on a clean shirt and before I left the house my wife said, “What's on your shirt?”. The shirt was wet from the deodorant, I changed and hung the old shirt up to dry. The next day it was still wet. My wife washed both the first and second shirt. Both of them were bleached out under the arms. Time to change deodorants!!!

I've been using Old Spice body wash and deodorant for a long time and never had any problems. I recently switched to Old Spice High Endurance because that's what my wife bought. After a few days I developed this terrible rash. I started itching, it was burning and extremely uncomfortable. I stopped using it and saw that were lawsuits, complaints and it seems as if nothing had been done. People like myself are getting these burns and rashes and Old Spice doesn't seem to want to look into their horribly manufactured product. I hope something gets done because I'm sure it's embarrassing for men and myself to have this rash/burn on our underarms.

My boyfriend brought home Old Spice, so I started using it, once a day for a week. On the 5th day I noticed a rash, but it wasn't painful or itchy so I just brushed it off. The next morning I woke up to a larger rash under both arms, and it was mildly uncomfortable so I decided to stop using anything under my arms. I thought this would solve the problem, but the next morning (day 7), I woke up with a severe, burning sensation under both arms, and I looked in the mirror and was shocked! I had a severe chemical burn under my right arm, and a minor one under my left. Now, a week later, I am still in severe pain under my right arm. I am applying vitamin A & D cream daily, and it has started to scab. I have a doctor's appointment later this week. I haven't been able to use deodorant or shave for a WEEK. I'm so frustrated and tired of feeling uncomfortable!

Used Old Spice pure sport deodorant for 2 day. Work up with 2 rashes in each armpit. My left armpit had a small amount of pus coming from the burn itself. It literally feels like a bad burn. I have never had an issue with any kind of deodorant! This is unreal how quickly this caused such an extreme rash. I will be contacting company.

A couple of weeks ago I started using Old Spice "Fiji" deodorant and it has caused a burn/rash that's quite painful. This past weekend I went without deodorant to let the areas heal and as soon as I put Fiji back on this morning it instantly started burning and I had to wash it off fast. I put on a different deodorant which has been fine. Hopefully the burns/rashes will go away before I head on vacation this week.

My sister was using Old Spice deodorant for a couple of weeks, when she noticed a burning/itching sensation in her armpits. It got so bad I had to take her to the ER, they had no idea what it was. The ER referred her to a dermatologist who can't see her til November. She now cries every day because of the burning and pain she's in, if there's anyone that is willing to help please contact me asap.

I started using Old Spice Wolfthorn deodorant because I liked how it smelled. After a short time couple of days, I broke out into a terrible rash/chemical burn on my underarms. It was extremely painful and unbearable. I sought medical help from dermatologist and was prescribed some cream to apply to my armpits twice a day for a week then once a day for another week. It finally calmed down and was no longer burning but it left scars under my arm where it had been burned. I will not recommend anybody to use this deodorant as it is dangerous and damaging to those who try to use it. The first pictures shown below are what my underarms look like now. As you can see, there is scarring left. The next two photos show my underarms when I contacted the dermatologist.

I came across the consumer reviews for the Old Spice and decided to post my own. In 2014 I tried once, and only once to use Old Spice High Endurance Sport formula they manufacture. I received nasty burns from use. I used it for 2 weeks. I noticed something didn't feel right about a week and a half before I decided to stop using it. I thought I was going crazy for a few days before I stopped using it because my underarms were very uncomfortable and almost burning. I never had that experience while using a deodorant.

When I finally decided to actually look at my underarms instead of blindly continuing to use the product I noticed red burns and raw spots where my skin was beginning to peel from my underarms. I had to stop using deodorant for about two weeks until my underarms returned to normal. The timing could not have been any worse due to the fact that I was training for an upcoming deployment. Now I know after reading complaints that I'm not the only one. I wish I would have taken pics. I thought it was just me.

My husband loved to use Old Spice and had been using it (most of the time) for over a year. I had bought a new bottle for him. Within 48 hours he had 2 small blisters. Honestly, we did not associate it with the deodorant at the time. But he did switch back to a bottle I had already had but was not empty. Needless to say that after about a week it was all better. But we did not take pictures since we were not sure what caused it. We thought maybe that could be it but was not sure. We did not take pictures I am sorry to say. But since this appears to be a problem now we know. Thanks for letting us vent our aggravation. This product needs to be removed from the shelves.

I'm a lifelong customer of Old Spice. Last week I purchased three of the new Krakengard sticks in blue (having already went through the white stick variant with no issues). I applied it normally and broke into a painful rash that hasn't shown any signs of going away for a week now! It hurts to even wear a shirt and this picture is after having applied cortisone cream to my armpit twice a day for a week.

I called the corporate support number and a specialist took my notes as if they are continuously used to this procedure, then argued with me on a solution, refusing to refund all three of the deodorants I had purchased-- they could only cover the cost of ONE because that was "all I had opened." With no receipt to return them, they all went in the garbage. It's like Old Spice cares more about an extra $10 in their giant corporate pocket than over a week of pain that I've had to endure. I'm sorry Old Spice, but with this issue, the way you've handled it, and the fact that you've continued to downsize your product leaves me no choice: You've lost me as a customer. NO LOOKING BACK!

My husband have been using Old Spice for years. Never had a problem since. Recently started getting severe rashes under his armpits. Just awful. Never seen anything like it. This deodorant should be taken off the market. He uses the Old Spice Classic Original scent.

I have been using Old Spice deodorant for quite some time now and recently started experiencing burning, redness, and irritation under my armpits. It has been getting worse and I have been suffering from this problem for about 2 weeks now. The redness has gotten worse and the burning as well. As a result, I had to go to my family doctor to have my doctor take a look at it and recommended some creams to use to help the situation. However, that did not work and it remains and it hurts. I will be going to the hospital if this remains and or gets any worse. The reason for this review is to inform consumers of this situation so they won't have to go through it.

My 14 year old daughter used this product before a basketball game. By the time we got home, she had severe burns, yes burns, under both arm pits. She was in such severe pain, she could not lift her arm at all!! So, the reports on this are true, only I knew nothing about this until it was too late!! For years, people have complained about these products and P & G does nothing about it!! This is a serious problem and if any other product on the market was causing this many complaints, it would be taken off immediately!! The problem is, a lot of the reports go undocumented because people don't realize what is happening!!! Please, please bring this to the attention of as many people as you can!! This is extremely dangerous!!!

I have been using Old Spice for about 3 years and have never had a problem until just recently. My girlfriend bought me some Old Spice desperado. I used it for two days and started having irritation in my armpits, skin started peeling, burning sensation, redness, and real tender under my underarms! I of course stopped using the deodorant immediately. I have since had some serious pain under my armpit that will not go away, the irritation eventually went away, but I still experience pain that has spread down my side like it's bruised and is progressively getting worse. I have no insurance to go to the doctor and I'm worried it could be serious because of the use of your desperado old spice brand!

I am very disappointed because I really liked using Old Spice and now I have to use another brand of deodorant, but at least my armpits are not peeling and feeling like they are on fire. I think your company should reimburse me for the problems I am still having to go through after the use of this product. They may not be on fire and peeling anymore, but I still feel like I'm bruised under my armpits! I do not save my receipts so I do not have one to upload but I do know where I purchased this from the dollar general store on Fremont street in Galesburg, Illinois.

I am a 29 years old fitness professional, very active and sometimes very sweaty. I take at least a couple of showers a day and been using Old Spice Wolfthorn Deodorant Stick for the last 2-3 weeks. In the last days I noticed my skin was getting a little bit irritated underarms, but I ignored it, hoping that it will go away, as you do. Now it is starting to itch. It's as red as the stick itself and when I put my arms down it starts to burn. I wish I knew about this earlier, because from what I can see, I'm not the only one. For a lawsuit please contact me.

I have used Old Spice for most of my adult life. It wasn't until I used the new line of wolfthorn, swagger, fiji etc that I had an issue. The picture I have attached is after a month of healing. I changed many products but never thought burns were from a company I trusted for so long. The doctor said it appeared I had a developed a bacterial like infection due to the severe burns. I still have scarring today but no longer use their products. I think something needs to be done for those who had to work uncomfortably with severe burns, doctor visits and monies spent on medical and other product replacement!!!

My son has autism & is particular about smells so I let him pick out his deodorant. Two weeks ago he picked Wolfthorn & Bearglove. Sometimes he doesn't tell me right away if he's in pain, but thankfully he did yesterday! He came to me, holding his arms up saying "owie". Omg!!! Why hasn't this product been pulled from the shelves? He has BLISTERS!

I used this Deodorant (Wolfthorn) because it smelled nice and women Deodorant didn't seem to stop the sweat now that I'm working out. I started to notice a red rash the second day of use. I used it the next day and didn't realize it caused everything to get worse. I stopped using and every day since my armpits are on fire, burning, painful and look bruised. I will be visiting my doctor tomorrow as I didn't know what to do to stop the burn and pain. I haven't used any Deodorant in three days. When the shower water hits my pits I want to scream! Extremely painful. As I searched the Internet for help, all the other reviews popped up with the same reactions to Old Spice. Why would the company not look into this further? Ugh!

I am a 30 year old male who has been using Old Spice Fiji Palm. I go through a lot of product. One morning after applying a new container of deodorant, I began experiencing severe burning under my armpits, and a rash appeared. It was so painful. I couldn't even put on a t-shirt. After a few weeks of this rash it led to a scarring and my whole underarm skin began peeling. I heard recently of a class action lawsuit which I would like to join.

I've been using Old Spice body wash and deodorant for a few months. In the last few months I have broken out with a rash every single day all over my body and my armpits as well. I couldn't figure out why I kept getting this rash. I saw my doctor and he prescribed me ** thinking it was stress hives. Since I stopped using the deodorant, my armpits don't break out. But up until I saw a shared video about Old Spice causing rashes, I had no idea. I plan to stop using the body wash in hopes that the rash will stop. I itch non stop and have scars from it.

I have used Old Spice since High School and everything was fine back then. For a while I started using other brands of deodorants but recently switched back to the good ole Old Spice. Completely regret it. I got a severe rash/burn after using it for only a day or two! Skin started peeling and was very sensitive. Not sure if there was a formula change but something is wrong.

I usually wear Degree deodorant but my wife recently purchased Old Spice Swagger. I used it for two days and by the third day this is how my left underarm looks. The right one is burned also but nowhere near the extent of the left one. I have blisters on it. There is extreme pain every time I move. I woke up this morning and my arm was stuck to my side. Extremely painful to pull apart. I couldn't even go to work. The white stuff is where I put goldbond medicated powder on it last night. I would like a lawyer to contact me about this lawsuit against Old spice.

I would like to know what the company plans to do to help anyone affected by using this deodorant?!? It's reckless and irresponsible to continue to sell this to anyone until it is researched and safe to use again.

I've been using Old Spice deodorants for ten years. I always bought Original, Classic, or High Endurance and was very loyal to the brand. I have never had any problems with the product and never bought anything else because I liked Old Spice so much. Yesterday, I opened a new stick of Classic Scent and felt a painful burning sensation under my arms almost instantly. I waited a few seconds to see if it would stop, but it only persisted. I rushed to the bathroom and washed off the deodorant and found my skin was pink and irritated.

Throughout the day, as the burn "settled", it hurt worse and worse. It felt like razor burn, or a sunburn that's almost healed and isn't radiating heat anymore. I inspected the rash in the bathroom and found it tender and waxy. This was what happened to me with only a few seconds of contact. What if I hadn't washed it off?

When I or home from work, I considered recreating my steps to see if I could trigger the burning again. I thought that maybe the soap I used in the shower might have caused some kind of reaction. I took a shower without using soap and applied the deodorant. While the alcohol irritated my existing burn, it did not seem to occur again in the same severity. I went to bed and woke up the next morning. I took another shower - again without using soap under my arms, and applied the deodorant a third time. Like the first time, extreme and painful burning began again. I washed the deodorant off immediately and Sat down to write this review.

Like I said, I've been using Old Spice for a decade and have never had a problem. Occasionally my skin would peel, but it was not painful and did not raise any concerns for me. I thought it could have easily have been from friction during the day. But what happened to me yesterday is not some fluke or personal sensitivity. This has happened to hundreds of people who have suffered much worse than me. I don't know if it's a batch problem or a resistance I have finally broken down or what, but I have never been adversely impacted by a consumer product like this before. I am disappointed. I am angry. I don't know what else to do but this. I don't have the receipt anymore, but I do have the stick. I'll be keeping it in a plastic bag in case I have the opportunity to be compensated.

I started using Old Spice Deodorant "Fresh", I had apparently a reaction for years, skin always irritated. So I switched to Old Spice "Swagger". I had no problems until recently, when I switched to using Antiperspirant when I work out, and using the Deodorant when I am not working out. I used the Deodorant and now have chemical burns on both armpits. I have tried other Old Spice Deodorants and end up with an irritation to them.

Let me just say I am a female. My husband and I were headed out the door to go to a local store and I felt like I needed a quick swipe of deodorant because it's been in the upper 80's and was warm again that day. I grabbed the Old Spice Swagger and gave 1 quick swipe under each armpit. We got to our location (10 minutes away) and began going through the store. Within another 10 minutes my right armpit was burning. It was really uncomfortable. I joked and asked him what they put in that manly deodorant thinking it wasn't the deodorant at all. By the time we got home I was in intense pain and I've given birth to 2 children, one over 10 lbs. I quickly got a shower and felt marginally better for about a minute.

I woke up the following day and the creases in my armpit are bright red and goopy. It looks like skin is falling off. Within another day the other armpit now looks the same. I've not put deodorant on in almost a week. I went to the doctor and she gave me some cream, but it's not helping either. They are getting worse. I can't lift my arms over my head due to the pain. As a busy mom this is HORRIBLE. I've never had a reaction like this to anything. It's not a rash. It doesn't itch. It burns. All because of 1 swipe in each armpit. 1 swipe. Now it's been a week of pain.

I've used Old Spice Pure Sport High Endurance for 10+years with no problems, except occasional redness from alcohol sensitivity if I over-do it, like by taking 3 showers in a day and applying heavily. Nothing that lasts more than a few hours, and only once a year, under the above conditions. In May of this year (2016), I experience a rash consistent with the other recent complaints. The rash started as an itchy couple of bumps, and then became a bright red "ring" of about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter, with lighter red in the middle. The rash has persisted, despite discontinuing use of the product, for 6 weeks.

The rash is responsive (goes away, and the skin resumes its normal color) with daily use of ** (10%) ointment after 3 days, but returns if the ** treatment is stopped. After being diagnosed as potentially a yeast infection by my dermatologist, a 3-week treatment of under-arm-specific antifungal / anti-yeast foam was tried (** foam). No change / reaction, except the ring appeared darker / more red. I have resumed treatment with topical **, but since the symptoms recur if discontinued, I'm afraid I'm not treating, and worse probably masking, the underlying cause.

I've used Old Spice deodorant of various types for a while and never had this problem. My armpits are so badly burned. I can't raise my arms. Very hard to take a bath. It must be the "Swagger" scent because I haven't noticed a problem when I use the others when I'm traveling but at home I have the "Swagger" and both times I used it, I got blistered. Old Spice needs to check their products because people are obviously suffering from their products.

I bought my husband another brand. But my husband bought another stick of Old Spice to leave in his car just in case he forgot to put on deodorant at home before he goes to work not thinking that he would get rash again. So he ran out of the stick at home. So he used the Old Spice Fiji. In three days he got the same rash. I sending him back to the doctor again tomorrow.

I used this old spice deodorant only because I left the house and forgot to put deodorant on so I stopped at a gas station on my way to work and bought this. Luckily for me, I only put it on that 1 time and left it in the car and in the hot Georgia summer heat it melted. I was bummed because it actually smelled really good and was considering starting to use it after my normal deodorant (degree sport) ran out. Two days later, I noticed my armpits were painful to the touch. I looked at them in the mirror and there was this red ring around my armpits on both sides. I freaked out because I didn't know what the hell it could be.

I started googling 'armpit ring rash' and looked at the images it pulled up and saw a picture of Old Spice which brought me to this site. I began to read the other comments of people complaining about the exact same symptoms and rash I had. The nail on the coffin were the pictures others had posted which looked exactly like my rash. Lesson Learned. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Been using degree sport since I was a pre-teen and at 31, I will continue doing just that.

Old Spice isn't my go-to deodorant, but I've used it in the past with no problems. However, when I ran out of my regular deodorant, I went to a nearby convenient store (which means I also had to pay considerably more) and purchased Old Spice Pure Sport. This was roughly a month ago, but recently I began to notice a burning sensation under my arms every time I would put it on. I didn't pay much attention to it, but the burning got worse about three days ago. Every time I would put it on my underarms would burn for about 10 minutes. I figured it was the deodorant so I stopped using it. When I looked in the mirror I noticed a bright red irritation around my armpits.

I didn't want the irritation to get any worse so I began googling ways to treat irritated skin under the arm cause by deodorant. Much to my surprise, the only results that popped up said something along the lines of "Old Spice Causes Rash/Chemical Burns to Consumers", which confirmed my belief that it was the deodorant causing the rash. I haven't used Old Spice in about 24 hours, but today my underarms still feel discomfort and the skin looks and feels raw. I live in Southern Louisiana where the highs are in the mid 90s, which doesn't make matters any better. If the irritation doesn't clear up soon then I will probably have to seek medical attention. I was on antibiotics around the time that I started to use the deodorant so I'm assuming that's the reason why I didn't starting experiencing symptoms sooner like other users. I'm extremely disappointed with the makers of this product.

My skin has been raw and has prevented me from shaving or wearing deodorant. It's June 25th and I still have the burns. I had to seek medical attention to treat the burns. This has been an extremely painful experience and I caution anyone to use Old Spice. Most painful rash of my life.

After using your deodorant and body wash products for quite some time, my fiancé began using "Lionpride" deodorant and started experiencing an itching and burning sensation. This then escalated to an irritated, painful chemical burn in his axilla, which in turn became open and infected. He has since stopped all use of this product and still has a visible irritant after weeks of discontinued use.

I do not typically use this product but was out of mine and decided to use this, Old Spice Champion Deodorant. Immediately after applying it, it started to burn, followed by a horrible rash and blistering. Obviously, I stopped using it but the rash is not going away on its own. It has been almost a week and I am in excruciating pain. It is not healing and will need medical attention. I went online looking to see what I could put on it to help the pain and start to heal it when I saw that I am not the only one with this issue. I have tried A&D Ointment, **, powder with cornstarch to help keep it dry, aloe and sterile nonstick first aid pads. Needless to say, I will never purchase this brand again.

I have been using Old Spice Wolfthorn and Bearglove for three years with no problems. Recently over the past few weeks, sometimes I get a slight stinging sensation when I put on my deodorant. Figured I had cut myself somehow trimming my armpit hair and it was just irritating the cut. Today, however I reacted very poorly to my deodorant. Within minutes after applying my deodorant I felt like my armpits were burning. I had to wash it off of myself and I'm still in pain. Hopefully I don't have lasting damage from this.

I ran out of my current deodorant. So I decided to use some Old Spice (Wild Collection) that my boyfriend had, but hadn't used yet. I noticed that as soon as I put the deodorant on it started burning my armpit. But I thought that it might be due to the fact that I had just shaven my armpits and ignored it. Later that night I happened to take a look at my armpits and my left armpit had what looked to be a chemical burn. This was only after one use! I discontinued use immediately and I woke up the next day and the burn was worse. It was very painful and throughout the week and my skin started to fall off and was full of pus. It was extremely painful! I decided to look up reviews to see if anyone else had experienced what I had, and was shocked to find all the reviews about this deodorant leaving people with burns! I will not be using Old Spice deodorant ever again!

I've been using Old Spice deodorants since forever. I've even switched from the dry cream variant to the stick variant and vice versa. I've had many of their different scents, even this limited edition Red series that they had which I wish they'll turn into a permanent selection. I love, love, love Old Spice! It's effective, their scents are long-lasting, and the stick can last for a year. No kidding. A year. Just one dab of it and it works for the entire day.

Now, on to these Old Spice users that I thought were joking... First of all, it's a product made for male adults. I don't know why some users are forcing the products on children. That's dangerous! I read this review about a mom complaining about Old Spice giving her 12-year old chemical burns. I was wondering why she allowed her son to use the product?! It's too strong for his young skin. There was another reviewer who used her boyfriend's Old Spice and got burned as well. Why did she do that?! Maybe she had no deodorant?

But anyway... Old Spice deodorants are specifically made and marketed towards men. I think that's a clue that's pretty much clear with its commercials and print ads. It's a product formulated for the male body and I am suggesting to everyone to keep it that way. What's too bad is that the stick variant is very hard to look for here in the Philippines. Once in a while I'll see them in random drugstores or supermarkets but these are too slim chances. Also, the product is expensive. But for me who is able to keep the product for around a year, I think that's a good buy. The stick variant lasts longer than the dry cream, just saying.

I used to use Axe for my deodorant, but I tried Old Spice high endurance dry cream, and the scent is less overpowering. I like it better than Axe, but recently I've been reading news about how their deodorants are causing rashes to the users. I will just finish my old stick and switch back to Axe, maybe until they fix this.

My 16 daughter started using the Old Spice deodorant because she found that she loved some of the new scents and found that it worked really well during field hockey season. She's gone through 2. I bought her a new one a month ago and within a week her armpits were inflamed looking, itchy and started to peel in patches. She had been doing conditioning out in the heat so we thought it was just a reaction to shaving and sweating but it hasn't gotten better and both armpits get really itchy, inflamed, raised and red any time she gets sweaty.

So I bought her a Dove deodorant for sensitive skin thinking maybe the men's was too much even though she had been using for over a year. Well she continued to use the Old Spice for hockey without me knowing and using the Dove on other days. She was hoping it would just go away and she'd get to still use the Old Spice. It continued so I decided to just Google her symptoms and found out that this is happening to many people after they had been using it for awhile. They must have changed their ingredients for all these people getting these rashes and burns. Fortunately my daughters haven't gotten as bad as some and she's completely done using it now. Just hope her skin heals up and no scaring happens.

I recently had a severe rash break out under my armpits. It was so bad that I had to seek a doctor and get antibiotics. They believe it was the deodorant causing such a severe reaction. It is now day 7/8 and the rash is still very prominent. I have pictures to show if needed. I have been in severe discomfort and would like something done if this is a known occurrence. It has cost me some money and more importantly affected my quality of life. It's so discomforting especially now that the summer temperatures are here. Please feel free to contact me to pursue something as this is not acceptable. I forgot to mention it's in both armpits same exact spots!

I have been a loyal user of Old Spice deodorant for over 20 yrs. Just in the last month my armpits developed a nasty rash and burned every time I put it on. On the recommendation of my dermatologist and after reading the other reviews on this site, I stopped using Old Spice and switched to Tom's. The red marks cleared up and I'm all better now. I wonder what changed in their formula? Needless to say I will not buy their stuff again.

My son has been using Old Spice deodorant since puberty, roughly age 12. He has never experienced a problem. That is until three weeks ago. After using the product (one application) his armpits became bright red and painful, his skin swelled up and by that evening his skin was peeling off. After doing some research I discovered that hundreds of men have the same problem and yet Procter & Gamble keeps this defective product on the shelves? Why have us consumers not been told about this? Why is there no recall on a clearly dangerous and defective product?

I really don't understand where all the negative reviews about burned armpits are coming from. I've been using Old Spice for at least 12 years and it's never let me down. There is no better deodorant on the planet, trust me. Keeps me dry all day and night. Heck, sometimes it keeps me dry even until the next day right before I take a shower. Plus it smells great, and I'm not just saying this as a guy. Even the ladies love the smell. (So for all you bachelors out there wondering how to get girls, this might be a good place to start.)

I do understand however that Old Spice might not be for everyone, especially those with sensitive armpits. It's pretty powerful stuff, that's why it's designed specifically for men. Yup, I'm talking to all the ladies out there that tried to use their boyfriend's or husband's Old Spice. My advice: DON'T. Seriously. There's a reason why it's designed for men. You'd be better off trying some other men's deodorant, just not this one. It will KILL your armpits. I for one will continue to buy Old Spice, now and until the foreseeable future. It's always done right by me, and I see no reason to switch to another. Thanks Old Spice for keeping wetness and bad odor far and the ladies close.

I ran out of my regular deodorant, but my wife had purchased a 2 pack of Old Spice pure sport as a backup a few months back (on sale). Gave it a go and do I regret it. This is after only 2 applications. I have never had any type of reaction to anything like this before. I use Old Spice body wash daily and I'm just fine. What could you possibly be putting in here that is so much different than Right Guard? Or any other deodorant I have ever used? Both of my armpits now have these painful red sores under them and it's quite insane. Never thought I would need to Google a deodorant before using it. Lesson learned.

Like many others posting poor reviews, I had used Old Spice for years. I've tried an assortment of scents, body washes, and sprays from their brand. I mainly use spray-on antiperspirants from whichever brand is priced well and haven't had one problem. I ran out of spray one morning so I resorted to using an unopened Old Spice "Swagger" stick that came with an OS shower kit I had. After about a week of use, I developed the most itchy, painful, and uncomfortable rash I've ever dealt with in my life. The rash became infected and is just now starting to heal - 3 weeks later. This is after a prescription antibiotic, an oral steroid, a topical steroid, and countless nights sleeping in hell. I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy for it's one of the most terrible experiences I've dealt with in awhile. If there's a lawsuit; count me in.

At the time I saw some pink but nothing to be concerned about. Last night he showed it to me and the areas under both his arms were a deep red color. It hurt so bad he had to take three Motrin. I took him to the doctor today. She said the areas were chemical burns. They were hot and swollen. She prescribed a cream and directed him not to use anything under his arms for the next three to four days.

My husband is in the military and as such needs a strong deodorant to combat the long hours and heavy physical training. He has used Old Spice Fresh deodorant for years with no issue, until a few days ago when he noticed a rash starting under his arms. We both assumed it was time for new t-shirts as the old ones must be too tight and rubbing on his skin, but found the issue continued to get worse. After a few more days we researched what it could be and realized that the rash was a result of chemical burns from the deodorant. He has since stopped using any (unfortunately for his team at work) and it's starting to get better. I'm absolutely shocked that the company is stating it's an alcohol tolerance issue affecting 1% of consumers. From reading the hundreds of other reviews I don't see how they could ignore such an issue. We will never purchase another one of their products again.

My 16 year old son only used Old Spice Deodorant twice and has bad chemical burns under his armpits. I had to take him to the doctor today because he was in so much pain. The doctor said the biggest concern with burns is infection. I just found out after I got home that Procter & Gamble is aware of all of the hundreds of complaints and is refusing to pulled these 12 different deodorant products off the market. They are saying it only affects 0.01 percent of the population. Yet, some of the reports you read on ConsumerAffairs are very severe reactions, including pain, swelling, scarring, etc. If you put chemicals that are so bad for the consumer in your products, that is causes a chemical 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree burn, that is a problem! I think it is both irresponsible as well as a public safety issue that P&G is not even remotely concerned about its consumers.

I have been using Old Spice's champion deodorant for years. However, a couple of months ago I began to get a rash along with a burning sensation, like with a sunburn, in my underarm. Every time I moved I felt the burn. When I got home from work that day, my underarms had about a 7" diameter as red as a tomato. I was not sure what it was and immediately took a shower and applied aloe to try and relieve the burning sensation. I found that it kept happening. A couple of days ago, I heard about the lawsuit being filed against PG's Old Spice, and it was then that I realized the rash was happening due to the deodorant.

I'm not sure if the formula was changed a couple of months ago, because as I said the problem started a couple of months ago. I have however stopped using the product, and my underarms seem to be healing. They are not as red as they have been, such as the first time I developed the burn. It did however leave brown/dark spots/lines/areas on my underarm. If anyone can email me the contact information for the attorney in the case, i'd be happy to comply and give added support.

Hi. My name is Jacob, I'm 23 years old and I'm a french speaking Quebecer living in Montreal, Canada. Last Sunday, on March 27 2016, I woke up with a burned left armpit just like I saw in a Huffington Post Canada article (**) which shocked me a little bit because I am dealing with the same problems. I have to tell that my wound is less impressive than those that appears in the news but still it hurts and it should not be happening. I have been using Old Spice products for over two years and I never had any problem until then. The wound is still hurting and does not seem to heal quickly.

I am looking forward to sue Old Spice as well as the other injured customers but it seems quite impossible to me but if we are a lot of people suffering from the same problem I guess it could be an option. I dont really know my customer rights and things like that so I decided to write a complaint here to see if someone could help in any way.

I have pictures of the wound to prove that there is really something wrong with their products, I can send them if necessary during the process. I never felt like that before and I have been using deodorant for a long time ago. Now I feel a constant burning pain and I can't sleep well since I got injured by that product. Moving my arm is painful, I feel like my skin stretches at a breaking point every time I try to reach something above my head. I stopped using Old Spice deodorant at the exact time I saw my wound by the way! I tried to reach news reporter in case they could help me but I am still waiting. I'm probably not the only one in Montreal to experience the same problem... If someone can help me I would appreciate. Thanks.

In order to maintain a level of hygiene, I have used deodorant between my legs. After the last time I endured one of these shifts I began to have an issue with the above mentioned region. I had made an appointment to see my gynecologist who recommended to stop applying scented products to the area and try some products usually made for jock itch to relieve the soreness. Just a few days later on the morning news I saw a guy who had the same issue with his armpits. OMG! It was the Old Spice, the same good smelling stuff I had used many times before without an issue.

I felt like I had found the answer to what caused the problem. I am not sure if they have changed the formula but it sure seems to me like there is something that has changed. I will not be posting photos as they would be not appropriate for public view, but I seriously believe that the Old Spice is the culprit. I am still in the healing process and hope that it doesn't take much longer. Two weeks have been long enough already. I suppose I will stop the jock spray and try hydrocortisone or baking soda paste after reading some of the other reviews. Thank you.

Recently, I changed my deodorant to old spices swagger dry to gel. After three days, my armpits became very irritated and raw. I will never use this product again due to the harm and discomfort it has caused.

I have been a long time Old Spice user and always loved their product. However, in the last month I have been dealing with an on-going severe chafing rash that burns intensely, itches extremely badly. I went to my local Dermatologist and was diagnosed with contact dermatitis and given an ointment to use. The ointment was of no help and my wife recommended trying a different brand of deodorant. I went to Speed Stick and much to our expectation the rash had started to subside. The rash is still present and quite bothersome, but after making the change from Old Spice to Speed Stick the symptoms have gotten much better.

My son has used Old Spice for a long time, and all of a sudden it gave him a very bad rash. It covered most of his underarm area. About 10 inches long and from his chest to his back just about. He had to quit using it or suffer with the pain and blisters. I didn't take pictures. Didn't even think of it. I just had him stop using it. I still have 2 of the unused deodorants at home. I don't know what they started putting in this product. But it didn't work. I am glad to see someone took on P&G to protect the rest of the people. Thanks.

My husband has been using Old Spice for a long time and he started developing rashes, burns under his armpits. Now I know this is not normal. I've read complaints and they're all similar to what my husband has been going through itching, burning & scarring.

After using Old Spice, I have had horrible rashes that turned into a cyst. Under both of my arms to the point where they needed to be cut open. This happened after 4-5 uses when I finally stopped use. I threw the product out immediately. I would definitely be open to somebody contacting me regarding this issue, as I have had a reoccurrence of this 3-4 times in two months after I stopped usage. I have spent a decent amount of money in medical bills and loss of work because of this. I would definitely STOP using old spice deodorants IMMEDIATELY!

It took only 4 uses for my daughter to have CHEMICAL BURNS. This is not just a small rash. We went to the doctor and have medical records of a chemical burn. She could not put her arms down and now her skin is peeling off in chunks.

So ever since I have been using Old Spice deodorant my armpits burn after I apply the deodorant. I never really thought this was a big deal because your armpits are a very sensitive area and the burning sensation usually would get less intense if I blotted my pits with a paper towel. Then I saw an article about some poor guy who said Old Spice deodorant has severely burned his armpits and had pictures posted!

After seeing those pictures, I actually looked at my armpits in the mirror and couldn't believe how bad my rash was. The rash I have is not as bad as his but mine is very red and very painful. Some days it hurts more than others which is very weird now that I think about it. Like I said I really thought this was just how my body reacted to deodorant but apparently not!!! I will not be using Old Spice deodorant anymore!!! I am still shocked at how red my armpits are and when I showed them to my girlfriend she couldn't believe how bad it was either! It is Old Spice fresh high endurance deodorant! NEVER AGAIN!! Anyone who uses Old Spice should immediately look at your armpits!!

I have used several Old Spice deodorant that are listed. It burns and I get a rash. I would have to put it on a few times a day thinking when I would do that make it better. I'm not active guy that I sweat so putting it on in the morning should be enough but I find myself rash and burning so I would put more on thinking I need to. Does anyone know where to sign up for that class action suit?

I bought Old Spice deodorant because of the hype surrounding it and the good smell. Little did I know I was in for a surprise. After putting it on and going throughout my day I began I feel a burning sensation under my armpits. When I go to check it out, my skin under my armpits is hanging and peeling off!! I will never use old spice again. I am very dissatisfied and in pain. I have not been able to use deodorant because of the pain under my armpits and it is frankly embarrassing.

After using Old Spice "swagger" deodorant, I developed a painful rash under my left arm in the area of application. I work in the construction industry & perspire throughout the day, in an attempt to not offend anyone (including myself) from body odor commonly present with perspiration. Normally when I use my regular deodorant soap (Irish Spring) I do not need deodorant, however, because the store I shop at (stator brothers) was temp out of my favorite brand, we purchased another brand. (Dial) which I knew I would need to use deodorant with. After one single use I received a rash which lasted 6 days. The rash so painful I had to lose 3 days work.

I do Crossfit and wanted a stronger Deodorant. After talking to many people Old Spice was recommended. I tried it on 2 separate occasions and got rash like burns under my armpits. They hurt so bad - I ended up going to the Dr's and was given prescription meds. I thought I had a picture on my phone but can't find it to upload. I'll never use this product again!

This is terrible. I have been using Old Spice deodorant for last couple of weeks and I have noticed dark rash mark around my underarm. It's getting darker and itchy, I decided to stop using it. Company needs to come up with compensation for the sufferers.

I buy my husband's deodorant and bought a twin pack of Old Spice deodorant when they were on sale. After using it for a short while, he developed a nasty red angry rash and had to stop using it and switch to a different deodorant. This has never happened before! What is in this deodorant?

Wish I could have saved the pictures, I may still have them on my cloud, now that I ponder. However, I have been a faithful Old Spice user for nearly a decade, bouncing back and forth to the occasional Right Guard or Speed Stick when I couldn't afford my more favorable deodorant. Well, I never knew the difference between anti-perspirant and deodorant (and scientifically, I still don't), but I know now that deodorant is the colored gel and anti-perspirant the white dry stick. I have always used the gel but I bought a stick of the white stick because I wanted to remain loyal to my scent before switching to a different scent.

Two or three days later, after a couple uses, my skin was ULTRA dried out, skin was OBVIOUSLY irritated, red and scabby. I could barely lift my arms past my hips, I felt like John McCain, and it didn't feel good. I didn't know what the hell to do so I took a photo of my pits and sent them to my friend's mother, who is a doctor. She expressed serious concern and told me to keep it moist at the very least and to quit using deodorant for the time being. Man, it was a smelly few days, but I kept Neosporin or just straight Vaseline on my pits (such an awkward sensation), and it ended up clearing up after four or five days.

However, during this period, I'm assuming because of the thicker jelly substances I was putting under my arms, I developed in-grown hairs in my arm pits. Two right on top of each other. It looked like a ** tumor was hiding under my arm, and it hurt so bad, lord have mercy. So bad, but I refused to go to the doctor, until one evening I accidentally fell asleep, and when I woke up, my armpit was damp. Like noticeably damp. I walked to the bathroom, turned the light on, struggled to lift my arm up to the mirror and saw a disgusting, bloody discharge dangling from in-between my armpit hairs. And when I went to remove it, I just yanked on my hairs/skin, as it was dried stuck by the time I noticed. Oh, it was disgusting. I had to soften it with a steaming wash cloth and after I carefully removed it, I had to press forcibly on/around the jelly cyst. All this pus started pouring out, man. Yuck. I wanna yak just writing this.

And mind you, my armpit just ranks with odor because it's been a couple days of no deodorant. I've just been bathing in cologne like this kid Preet I knew in high school after gym class was over. Oh man, I felt bad for anyone who had to come into contact with me. After about fifteen minutes of juicing my armpit, I applied Neosporin and stuck a wad of TP under my arm. Woke up and went to the doctor, to where he confirmed all my suspicions: the rash was from the CHANGE of deodorant to antiperspirant and the cyst was two in-grown hairs on top of each other, unable to grow from the ointments clogging my pores. Such a waste of a $75 co-pay, but whatever.

I didn't realize that this same thing has happened to dozens more people and that it was a chemical burn. That is ** terrible, and it loathes me to even have to consider boycotting Old Spice, as they are home to a few of my favorite scents. But damn, this was unforgettable, really. I've definitely been more open to different brands since then I must say.

I purchased Old Spice for my son. He was badly burned under both of his arms. It was very difficult for him to put his arms down. He broke out and still have the marks under his arm.

Roughly 2-3 years ago I started noticing a rather severe pain in both of my arm pits. The pain was constant and felt like my arm pits were on fire at times. I have been a mechanic for a little over 5 years so I figured the irritation was from my work uniform and the never ending heat of the Florida sun. This has gone on since I started using Old Spice Swagger (2-3 years), but I never thought my deodorant was the cause because I switched to Old Spice Pure Sport, and then one other Old Spice type that I can't recall the name of right now. But the pain and redness continued no matter what so I figured that it had to be work related. Well I went back to Swagger and things only got worse... It would start off red, swollen, and painful, but then within a few days would begin to itch uncontrollably and finally the skin underneath and around my armpit hair began to peel/flake off. It was disgusting and painful!

It was a vicious cycle of discomfort that has continued to this day. I actually have scar tissue on the affected areas. I used to use Axe and Adidas back in high school and NEVER had any sort of problem. This is solely Old Spice's fault and it's good to see that I'm not the only one having this issue and coming forth! It is a shame though as Old Spice always smelled the best in my opinion and easily has hundreds of dollars from me since I use them for other things like body wash and the occasional aftershave.

I used the product and had severe skin irritations that resulted in a bad chemical burn and eventually created pockets of staph. I eventually had to see a physician.

Hi, I have used Old Spice for some 20-25 years, until recently. I discontinued using Old Spice a year or so ago when I noticed that my underarms were red, burning and inflamed. The burns were like a chemical burn. I wasn't sure what was causing the problem, but assumed that it must have been the deodorant. My wife told me to take pictures and submit to the company but I couldn't be bothered with it. To this day I no longer use Old Spice, it's a shame because my wife loved the smell. I have had to switch to Mitchum. I don't know if Old Spice changed the formula or what but something needs to be done so this doesn't happen any more.

My son came to me a week and half ago saying his armpits were on fire. I had no idea what it could be from until I saw this on the news. He was miserable for a week, he couldn't wear a shirt or put his arms down. I have used Old Spice before but I think I'll change. I have three boys, I need something safe and that I can count on.

I have used Old Spice deodorant for years without any concerns. Recently a burn developed when using the pure sport. It has taken weeks to heal. It went thru a scab to a bruise looking stage. I am not quite sure if I purchased a bad batch as this has never occurred before. The burns are quite painful and have still not completely healed after about 4 weeks.

I also ended up in Urgent Care with serious Chemical Burns under my arms and am now working with a law firm to get a class action suit underway. No one should have to suffer this type of pain. If you want to help put an end to this and to possibly receive some compensation for your pain and suffering, join a class action lawsuit - Call Frank at **. Time is of the essence, so call now.
