I am a 27 year old woman, and have never had any skin problems to speak of. For the past 3 weeks or so, my chest, shoulders, and upper back have had a pimply, red rash. I have been looking on the internet for causes without much luck. My question is this – if heat rash can be caused by blocked sweat glands, is it possible that deoderant is the cause? The ONLY thing that has changed in my routine in the past month is my deoderant. I just started using an over the counter “clinical strength” deoderant. Can these two things be related???
No – The ONLY thing that’s changed is the type of deodorant. Same lotion, same soap, same detergent, same dryer sheets, same clothes, same EVERYTHING.
