Old Spice’s Facebook page has been recently inundated with pictures of skin irritation and it’s not just men, but women as well. It appears that some people are suffering from rashes and chemical burns after using Procter & Gamble Co.’s Old Spice products. The company is even facing a lawsuit.

Rodney Colley has provided pictures for the lawsuit which states that his skin became irritated after using their deodorant. The lawsuit claims, “After only a few uses of the Old Spice product, Plaintiff suffered severe rashes, burning and discomfort requiring the Plaintiff to immediately cease using the product,” reports WKRN News.

The suit goes on to state that his experience isn’t isolated as the internet is, “replete with examples of consumers who have complained of the exact same issues with Old Spice deodorants.” Another consumer, Sharon, wrote “My son has been using Old Spice Swagger Deodorant and has a rash in his armpit that is red and burning. We will never buy these products again!!! Shame on you Procter and Gamble for continuing to produce this product with all these reviews, and without warning!!!”
