What works very well for me is a crystal deodorant. I've been using it now for probably 3 years, and I've not had any itching or anything. The brand I use is Thai. It's widely available and a stick lasts for a very long time.

First, I tried the Savonnerie one, and of course like all Sav products it is safe.. but powders are not so good for just everyone, as it gets on your cloths. I didn't like it, so I kept looking.
The Most perfect things I could find : Nutribiotic brand deodorant sticks/solids. It doesn't stop sweat, but it leaves you smelling great, and contains aloe, so it really helped my skin heal.The whole "you still sweat" concept.. Not a down side once I found out that regular antiperspirants only prevent sweating by clogging your pores with something gross.

I couldn't tolerate deodorants/antiperspirants (except the mineral salt kind) for several years - by trial, error and luck I discovered that if I have 'too much' vitamin C (like the amount in a regular multivitamin) I would get hive-like reactions to deodorant/antiperspirant (roll-on or stick, even if fragrance free). Once I readjusted my vitamin line-up, I could tolerate fragrance free deodorant/antiperspirant.
As a kid I once got hives from too much Tang in one weekend!
Good luck, hopefully you will solve the puzzle with your daughter.

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

My daughter was diagnosed in 2006 with Celiac disease. She's been doing well until just a few months ago. Part of the problem is her deodorant...she's getting swollen red, tremendously itchy rashes with solid white deodorants/antiperspirants but gels don't seem to bother her ... yet. What's the difference? What's a recommended gel/roll-on brand that doesn't cause rashes? She has trouble with lotions as well. I'm not sure what ingredient I should be looking for that isn't obviously labeled "wheat..."? Hmmm....?!!
