Most doctors and people recommend that you cool down your arimpits. You can do this by wrapping a ice bag in a towel and placing it under your arms for several minutes. Another great way is to way airy clothes and not tight fiting clothes. They also sell some good anti itch creams on the market you can try. If you are seeing redness and irrations this is a good time to go see a doctor. In some cases - I am not saying in yours - this is an early warning sign of brest cancer.

Two years is a very long time! I would talk to your doctor because itching can be a sign of other issues like allergies to medications or illness including diabetes and thyroid issues.

You may be allergic to the deodorant or detergent you are using. See a dermatologist or an allergist.

Discontinue the use of your currant rub on.They have an all natural rub on. The natural ones do have the harsh ingredients,and cater to more sensitive skin!

You could be allergic to your deodorant you are using. Do you put any lotions or perfume, that could be it also. Do consult your doctor.

I would suggest several things:

One - throw your present deodorant away - far away (even if it a hypo-allergenic).

Two - try to find a hypo-allergenic deodorant - but only try one brand at a time and give it several weeks to work.
Read this as you probably have 'contact dermatitis' and need to use medication to clear it up.

This site recommends a topical corticosteroid to help clear up the rash and itching.
You can go to a dermatologist and hopefully you have insurance but be very careful as all the tests they want to do are very expensive and some insurances do not cover all the costs.

Or you can talk to your local pharmacist and explain your problem so they can recommend a cream for you to use. They do sell an OTC topical corticosteroid.

Since you are probably working, you cannot go all day without some sort of odor protection so I would suggest thoroughly cleaning (GENTLY) your underarm area each night and applying the cream in the affected area.

Do the reverse in the morning and apply one of the new deodorants.

This may take a few weeks but it may work for you.
If there is no improvement (and you have tried) then you should definitely see a dermatologist.

I meant to add; once you clear up your problem, it would be a good idea to not wear deodorant at night so your skin has a chance to breath.
You may be overly sensitive to some ingredients in deodorant compounds.
There is a natural deodorant you can buy if necessary.
