It's amazing how many "injured" people come out of the wood work the instant a class action suit is announced. I have been using all of the products since they were first introduced with absolutely no problems. Has it ever occurred to those of you have have reactions to to this product and others, that you have an allergy to them? Is it the manufacturers problem that you are allergic to their products? And how would you recommend that P&G label it since anyone at any time could be allergic to anything? And, for this, you take this product away from the majority of product users who were happy. All for the almighty dollar. Sad what this country has come to. Very sad. Once more, because of the few who have allergies, you have confiscated my free will to purchase this product. Well, what goes around, comes around. You will receive back the Karma you have released. And, primarily for greed. Sad...

Is it possible for my son to be included in this action? He experienced burn like rashes on two separate occasions. The first time was after Christmas 2013 when he experienced a red raised rash after using Old Spice deodorant (it was the Classic scent) that subsided after he stopped using it.
The second time was in April, 2015 after receiving Old Spice Swagger deodorant as part of a birthday gift. On that occasion the rash looked more like a burn and was very painful. It ceased and gradually faded after he stopped using it but it took nearly a week to start healing.

I have used After Hours Old Spice consistently for a few years now and all of a sudden I too have experienced the chemical burn and rash everyone else have experienced. I filled out my information. I also called them and they are sending me $5 visa debit card to reimburse me for the deodorant. HAHA....yeah like that will help.

Used Old Spice Swagger Deodorant ( Red Zone Collection) 1 time because I was out of my normal deodorant on a Monday morning. By Monday night my armpits were on fire. It left armpits with a red rash and hurting where I had applied the deodorant. I am hoping it goes away on its own.

I had to stop using product because of all of the burns and rashes in my armpits! I thought I was just allergic to the deodorants until I read similar complaints against old spice! Glad I took pictures!

I used the aqua reef antiperspirant/ deodorant and it was awesome. My local Walmart quit carrying it but continues to carry just aqua reef deodorant which cause a rash in my armpits. I have had to discontinue using the deodorant because of the burning.

My husband had used Old Spice for years and has never had an issue. He switched when my son started using some other. Recently as my son no longer lives here my husband went back to Old Spice. About a month ago he started getting a rash. He stopped using and I put aloe ointment on and rash went away. He started using it again and it came back. We did this 4 times thinking at first it couldn't be Old spice. But now we know it was. There is something in there product that they have recently changed. So Sad he really liked it years back.
Please ad us to this claim
Thank you

My son ended up with a horrible oozing rash under his arm that was quite painful. We thought it was just a fluke. Then he saw something on Facebook about this class action lawsuit being filed. All of these people and Old Spice is saying that it's nothing?!?!? We've stopped buying their products. How many people need to suffer before you own up to this Old Spice?

Shame on Old Spice. That name was a household word when I was growing up. So I trusted buying it for my 16 year old grandson. Severe itching. burning etc. Aloe helped. I want to be part of this lawsuit. These products obviously not tested before unleashing on the consumer!

I've used old spice for awhile I don't know if it's a specific date or what but I have 2 sticks of the Fiji and the one that's almost out didn't effect me until I used the new stick and my arm pit was on fire this morning. I got my wife to look at it and she said some skin was peeling off like a sun burn. I don't know what to do, it itches like crazy and burns.

I've used old spice Original High Endurance Deodorant for the past 3 days and as a result I now have a large burn with blistering under my left arm pit and a slight burn under my right armpit. I have never had this reaction to any other type of deodorant before.

My husband has been using Old Spice for years and has never had an issue until recently. About 3 weeks ago he started getting a rash. He stopped using and put oilment on and rash went away. So he started using Old Spice again and it came back. There is something in there product that they have recently changed.

I received some Old Spice deodorant for Christmas as part of a gift set and the day I first used it I had itching and burning of my underarms so I stopped using it. A few weeks later I used it again with the same result so I threw it away and thought no more of it until I saw this post.

Wow my husband used this and after only his second day he came home thriving in pain and itching so bad he was going nuts, he said please help somethings wrong with my armpits so he took off his shirt, lifted his arm and I said "what the heck did you get into, you have some blisters with a purplish rash" and I took plenty of pics, He said I didn't do anything my armpits started hurting this morning and as the day went on it got worse, after I helped him calm down his armpits we discussed what it could be from and hmm the only thing we had gotten different was 2 days before he bought the OLD SPICE DEODORANT.
I said DO NOT put any more on and let's see if that stops it and hmm yep it stopped but we thought it was just him because we didn't hear of anyone else until now.
I have to say pretty sad !!!! All these men did was but deodorant, a basic necessity and it caused this!!! Makes a person wonder?

I used Old Spice several times but I bought a new scent and within 5 minutes of applying the deodorant my arm pits were on fire. The entire area, about 6 inch by 2 inch wide was extremely red and burning. I washed the area off but the pain continued for several hours, I had to miss work that day because was in pain and had to keep my arms in the air.

I used Old Spice Deodorant for several years. I suspected that something in the product was causing me to break out in a rash because every time i used it, this would happen. I would break out with watery blisters, skin red and peeling, highly itchy, and extremely painful to the touch. Nothing seemed to sooth the condition.

I personally think it might be the aluminumchlorhydrate they use in it, but I don't know. I do know that after I stopped using the product, that the painful rash eventually went away. Now I don't use anything except a mild soap and water when I shower. This product sucks and I am pissed off that they ever put it on the market!

How do I sign up for this class action lawsuit suit? Send me some information as soon as possible. These jerks need to pay for the problems they have caused at my expense...

This has been happening to me for the past year after using old spice deodorant. Who do I contact, as it has been causing an ongoing, burning, blistering rash in my armpits.I had the same issue and would get a horrible rash when I used the old spice high endurance deodorant. I would get a rash that would itch and burn severely. I quit using it and no longer get the rash. It took me quite a while to realize it was the deodorant because I had used old spice for years so I thought it was something else causing the rash. I finally decided to quit using the deodorant after I tried changing laundry soaps, almost got rid of my dogs, but once I stopped using the de and switched to new one the rash is gone

I have had the same issue with my Old Spice deodorant. I had no idea it was the deodorant actually causing the problem. I thought it was my laundry detergent which i switched and the rash did not go away. Very red with horrible burning. I will now quit using it for sure.

I've used Old Spice deodorant in the past and never had a reaction, now I have burns under each arm, very painful, they need to pull the deodorant off the shelves so this doesn't happen to anyone else

Just wanted to add my two cents here. Don't know if it's the best place, but I too have had terrible reactions to old spice. Only recently. I've used it my entire life and about a month ago I went to a new brand. Applied the pure sport deodorant and within five minutes all the skin on my under arm sloughed off. Stopped for a couple days because I figured it could've been poor hygiene or maybe attributed to heat rash. Put it on again and it did the exact same thing. If my statement helps, by all means contact me. But I did do what any smart person would do and just switched. Regardless, old spice needs to be made aware of this.
