Red, sore armpits

Can anyone recommend a good antiperspirant for sensitive skin? I sweat quite a lot so I need to use a pretty strong one but brands like Mitchum really irritate my skin leaving me with sore armpits.

I use Nivea rolls. And I use a bar of soaps, not a liquid shower gel.
I also no longer have hair and it makes a difference

Mitchum also made me sore.
Sure roll on blue one works for me.

Does it have to be an antiperspirant? Nuud is a very good and gentle deodorant.

Dove for me.

Thank you all for your help. I will give Nivea and Dove a try to see if they agree with me. I've not come across Nuud before but it looks really interesting!

Have you tried treating your armpits with hydra cortisone or anti fungal? It could be a skin infection/or something that needs treating? When I had a fungal issue I used a crystal deodorant in black packaging from boots. I'll try to remember the name!

Look at soaps especially if you shave.

This.
You dampen the crystal then swipe your freshly washed stinky bits (feet:armpits etc) with it.

Op just in case you decide to try a 'natural' version, I got a rash like the one you describe from my favourite deodorant which contains baking soda. I instantly googled Nuud (no baking soda apparently) as I'm always looking for options.

@BusterGonad When I have a really bad attack I treat it with hydro cortisone for a few days until it goes away. I have dermititis and often suffer from eczema out breaks when I'm stressed.
