leather bubbling on back seat pocket leather bubbling on back seat pocket

At some point in the spring while cleaning my car, I put a deodorant in my seat back pocket (Driver's side). During the summer after my car sat in the parking lot of work in CT, I noticed my leather seat had bubbled. The hard plastic exterior of the deodorant must have attracted the sun to that particular spot and made it bubble! The actual interior of the deodorant barely had melted and the outside was in perfect shape, however my Honda seats had seen better days.

I've used leather conditioner to remove as much of the residual deodorant as I could but there is both white marks and a bubble left on my car. After reading on the web, it seems like the only option would be to replace the driver's seat. NOT HAPPENING!
