Hello

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Good day.
Your skin may be sensitive to a component of deodorant. I have seen many people developing skin rashes to deodorant sprays. However, when they change over to a deodorant sticks or roll on, there are no issues. Did you try deodorant sticks or roll on ?
If you are allergic to all of these, then you could try a mildly scented talcum powder instead.
