Taking a bath should be a refreshing time for everyone. You simply have to undress, turn on the shower, and use the shampoo, soap, and face wash. But sometimes, the products you use are not as safe or as effective as they claim to be. Some products really look good in advertisements, but other than that, there is nothing extraordinary or amazing about them. So, there is no wonder that there are harmful incidents happening with the use of some personal care products.
This is the story of how an otherwise simple product physically harmed an individual. Read the story below to see how the problem escalated, and if there are any ways to solve it.
Rodney Colley is a 23-year-old man who felt that his underarm had a rash after he took a shower. At first, Rodney believed that it was the soap that caused the rash, but then it become more painful.
Rodney, who studies at Alexandria in Virginia, first did not mind the rash on his underarms until one morning. He felt that his underarms were on fire, and when he looked at himself in the mirror, the skin was already scabbing.
The truth was that the soap was the problem. The Old Spice deodorant Rodney was using reportedly led to the chemical burns on his underarms.
Specifically, Rodney used the Pure Sport High Endurance deodorant from Old Spice. It might be a rare case that became possible of his skin type, but it is not the first time that complaints were sent to Old Spice.
In October, Michael Smith showed how his underarm had also been chemically harmed, reportedly by using an Old Spice deodorant.
Even Consumer Affairs have given bad reviews to Old Spice products, reportedly because of its harmful, burning effects to the underarms of people.
Even with all the complaints about chemical burns and possibly allergic reactions, the company is yet to make an official statement.
What about you? Do you think your deodorant is really safe to use?
