gentle deodorants
Nov 30, 2003

A minor problem: I've been taking HIV meds for three years; In the last few months I've noticed an increased sensitivity to conventional deodorants and anti-perspirants--they make my armpits itch and burn. Do you recommend any deodorants that work, but are not so harsh on the skin?

Response from Dr. Henry

Deodorants that are not antiperspirants (often with no aluminum) such as RightGuard may be better tolerated. Also the hypoallergenic line Almay has a deodorant that some can tolerate better. Baby powder works for some also. KH
