I wish I had something helpful to say, but I am a girl and I have EHK. All I can say is that using deodorant is one thing that I have never had problems with.
He could always go with the old patch test and try it out on the weekends or over spring break when school is out so that if he reacts, he won't have to be at school and uncomfortable. And there's always all natural products that might cause less reaction.

My husband has ich, but a different type more like EHK. He uses the spray type, but it burns like crazy if he has peeling like when using Tazorac. Then he switches to the cream stuff.

Type is hit or miss. Some sting more than others. It wouldn't hurt him to try it. He'll know right away if it stings or not.

Husband, Nathan - 10, Elliot - 7, Oliver - 4, all affected.
I also have an unaffected daughter, age 8.

Jennifer~ I've used Tazorac myself before. It works wonders! lol

mom4mike~ I have EHK, and I've seen that deoderant causes the skin under my arms to thicken up pretty bad. So I buy an extremely strong OTC form that lets me go a day without using it. if I need to clear my skin under my arms, I'll just soak in the bath, apply lotion (vaseline) really thick and let it sit for a few hrs before scrubbing away.

I have EHK so 100% not the same thing, but maybe helpful. I have been using it since middle school. Not much need before that.
I use a spray, Right Guard - Anti antiperspirant and deodorant. Fresh scent thought I don't think the scent matters. This is the only thing that works.
No roll on gel or even other sprays work for me. Also the right guard deodorant (with out antiperspirant) doesn't work.
And it doesn't seem to burn either.
Note: I was just on the right guard website and they have a clinical version I have never seen before. I will give it a try and pass along my findings.

Gain more Accuracy

To gain more accuracy, try using a more upright stance and a steeper swing with these discount golf clubs. You could also try tightening your grip. Don't swing your arms around your body when you play the shot. Instead swing your arms skyward on the backswing. ishiner
