Can I sue for liability? I purchased a new deodorant, used it for 2 days, and now have a severe allergic reaction.

Have a local defective product lawyer investigate. Companies will do a lot to protect their reputations, for example, I had a client use a beard coloring dye and it caused hypopigmentation to his face, and the CEO flew to my office and gave my client $200,000.00, as he didn't want the bad press of me taking this to trial.
