I switched to Secret Platinum Clear Gel deodorant about two - three months ago. My armpits have been itching off and on since starting to use it. Most recently my left breast became painful and have had some nerve pain throughout the breast. I have had some nerve pain on the right breast as well. My injury massage therapist suggested I change my deodorant to an all natural brand without aluminum purchased at a health food store. The itching has gotten better since starting to use the new deodorant three days ago, but still having some nerve pain in my breast. Has anyone ever experienced anything like described?
There is no known association between aluminum in deoderants and breast pain. You should have your breasts examined by a physician to ensure that there are no suspcious masses or other lesions in either breast.
