    Hello Stephen, have you been to your GP?  I think that ought to be your first port of call.

    What cream have you tried?

    As for your underarms, perhaps you should try just washing and not using any deodorant for a while.

    Again, it's back to your GP.  They are quite good with basic Dermatology these days & maybe you need something slightly stronger than the over the counter creams.

    I have had a lot of problems with chemical allergies & the deodorant that I am currently using is called Fresh Kidz & I use the one that is aimed at young boys!  I haven't had any problems with it at all.  It is more expensive than a lot but it works. You can get it on Amazon but also in all the major supermarkets & local pharmacies.

    Your scalp problems sounds like a form of eczema, which is why you need to see your GP.

    Good luck.

    If you have to wait to see your GP you could always have a word with your pharmacist. They are usually very knowledgable.

    Hi Stephen,

    I had exactly the same with my scalp, had tried many different shampoos and creams etc to relive the symptoms but it was quite persistent. Eventually I had Betnovate scalp application off the doctor, it worked a treat.

    Hope you find something that works for you soon!
