My daughter struggles to use deodorant due to her sensory issues when putting it on (not the smell of it), tried roll-on, aerosol and pump action spray. Does anyone have any advice please?
Have you tried stick deodorant or gel? I would recommend getting a lot of different types until you find one she doesn't mind. Perhaps also try a shop where they sell health food and that sort of thing. I think you can also get it as a powder or a cream but I'm not sure.
Do you want to her to use it or does she? Maybe she doesn't want to use it. If she wants to use it try Lush. They do a lot of powders and bars as DragonCat16 suggested.
I was going to suggest the Lush powders
I use a mineral deodorant stone. They also have the advantage of being very long lasting.
Wow, does anyone of you manage to go into a Lush shop without holding the breath? I'm finding this impossible, even to wait for someone going in I would rather stay in some distance to the door...
Thank you all for your suggestion, she doesn’t want to use any, but needs to, so I will get a mineral stone and powder and see if she can cope with those better. Thank you
Lush is a bit too much for me. All those smells at once give me a headache.
I really like Lush, I do feel stuffy after a little while in there but it's ok for me to walk in and look around. XD
If she's really adamant she won't wear it you could see if she can get away with washing her underarms with an antiseptic soap (you can get them from chemists) every morning. It's the bacteria that are the problem so eliminate enough of those and you're probably good.
Thank you, another good suggestion
