There are products which are labeled "hypoallergenic" that are gentle on those with sensitive skin.

My daughters get an awful rash from typical deodorants, but those labeled hypoallergenic have produced no rash with them.

Good luck!

Many products at your local drug stores can offer hypoallergenic deodorant. Also consider natural products. I did a quick search at Wallgreens and GNC .

I hope this helps. :)
