Reactions to Washing Products

I have problems using any soaps, shower els, deodorants, antiperspirants, moisturiser etc. Besides soap drying and irritating my skin whenever they are applied they also smell quite bad when applied. I am using [I]Aqueous Cream[/I] or sometimes [I]Silcoks Base[/I] to wash and moisturise so thats not a much of a problem any more, however I must use a deodorant or antiperspirant for obvious reasons, but I smell when I use them.

I've been to 3 doctors but and they couldn't help me at the time, I think this may be because at the time I didn't realise that these products where drying and irritating my skin, my skin always felt uncomfortable, tight and sore, I guess I was used to it. So all I told the doctor was that these products were making me smell. I can't believe how good my skin feels since I started using Aqueous Cream. :)

Could anyone recommend any products for me, I have tried all the conventional products available on the High Street? I need to use something to stop me smelling like sweat.

P.S. When I told the doctor that these products made me smell he was very surprised, he said it was a very unusual symptom. He recommend Aqueous Cream to me.
