itchy armpits
Good day

Please assist. I use a Mitchum gel roll on and last week i forgot to put it on and ended up using a perfumed spray under my armpits. Now my armpits cant stop itching and have developed some kind of allergy. Everytime i put on the roll on its itching. Please advise with any over the counter medication i can buy.

Hi S

Firstly - stop using it for a while. Also, ensure that your skin is dry before application.

Otherwise taking an atihastime such as deselex may relieve the symptoms.
