I went deodorant free right after reading your post. The facial bumps completely disappeared within 3 days -- and they had been hanging around for a couple of weeks. The rash on my chest has receded to just a line, shoulder to shoulder at the base of the neck. Weird.

I never suspected the deodorant. I thought it was something I was ingesting -- beet juice or a supplement -- I've been trying a few different things. I was really concerned because I've always been blessed with clear skin... no teenage acne... no eczema or psoriasis.. nothing. I'm so happy to have my face back! LOL
Zany, was it the mag/bab deodorant you had trouble with or a different recipe? How long were you using it before you developed a rash?

My mom is excited to try the mag/bab but I feel a little guilty always using her as my guinea pig. I hope if any one else has had issues you'll let us know (and save my precious mother).

Yes, it was the mag/bab deodorant. I didn't make it. I got it from another member who generously sent me a full size container so I could try it before making it. I've been using it since mid-June, if I remember correctly. I really like it! I don't remember when the rash started or the breakouts on my face, and I forgot to mention, my back also, but it's been a month or two or three? Not sure. There was so much going on family-wise, that the last couple of months are just a blur. I wish I could be more precise, but I actually didn't think the deodorant was the cause until I stopped using it and the rash and breakouts went away.

ETA: I think I'm probably allergic to the magnesium. I can't take mag/zinc/calcium supplements -- they don't like me.

Is that 3% cetyl as well as BTMS or 3% cetyl instead of BTMS?
