I sprayed it for maybe about 3 or 4 seconds longer than usual I was suprised by it because I didn't feel any pain

And it's extra strong deodarent but not prescription
Thank you for the additional information.I think that this should be fine in due course of time.Meanwhile you can try applying over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone two to three times a day for 3-5 days.It will heal up in due course of time.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

It really won't scar at all? Will it heal without the hydrocortisone? Thank you for responding so quickly
Yes will likely heal without scarring and without hydrocortisone.
