Uh-oh, personal question..... - Page 2

post #31 of 45
I have heard of the botox injections on the radio. My right arm sweats more than my left but i'm like you, i have to limit my clothing...i cant wear the little sleeved shirts...so i wear alot of tanks. I also cant wear solid long sleeved shirts b/c the sweat will show through. A friend of mine has the same problem and she used a mineral stone. Worked for her, i just havent bought one yet. Do a search for them on the internet and you'll see what i'm talking about it...they are very affordable. Good luck.

my right armpit used to sweat excessively. I started using this stuff called certain dri, it's like prescription strength deodarant but you can get it at walmart or whereever. I have never sweat with that stuff, you only use it every other day or so.

If you want to know more about the thing I have, pm me.
I've been thining about the botox though, but I think its too scary!
now, i'm not recommending this, but...my mom had radiation for breast cancer, & now she doesn't sweat at all from her left armpit! she also no longer grows hair under that arm!

I learned about that during sorority rush in college (the stores sell out of it that time of year ). It works great! You put it on at night, shower the next morning as usual, and it works for 24 hours! It is FANTASTIC! Just don't apply it right after you've shaved under your arms- YOUCH!

Thanks for everyone's replies! I think I'll try this to start. I was waiting to see what the majority would say and 2 votes for this and I'll try it first. I hope I don't have a reaction to it and it works!
Ummmm....can you buy it in the stores? Where?

That was a big problem for me in High school. Not so bad now but if I am in a unfamiliar situation the sweat starts rolling!! I found Mitchum antipersparant works well. it seems to me that you are supposed to apply an night before you go to bed instead of after showering???
I was so emabarrassed yesterday as I was sweaty from digging-I get home look at my shirt and I have these two big sweat spots under my boobs!!! And I was working around guys too!!
Let us know what works for you.

I've found it in ShopKo, Kmart, Target, Wal Mart, Walgreens, etc. You can basically get it anywhere. Be careful, though. I used it & had a reaction to it. My little sister used it too often & her armpits got all red & itchy. Don't use it more often than the directions say. It works awesome, though.

Thanks!

I bet we don't have these products in NZ. My ex used to use some product would it be weird if I gave him a text asking him - seeing as we don't talk anymore?

Lol, I did discuss it with my doctor and she gave me a prescription to see a dermatologist for a reaction to deodorant...duh....My doctor likes to dismiss me a lot...
Anyway, I did go get the Certain Dry, I will try it tonight! I guess I'll give it a week or two before I start to wonder if it works. If it does, bring on the cute shirts again! Woot!

I ordered some too! I have really sensitive skin, hopefully it doesn't irritate it. Let us know how it works for you!

Ok, so I tried the Certain Dry last night. You're supposed to roll 1-2 times under each arm to start with, at night before bed. Well, the thing leaked and I ended up rolling on a lot more than I should have, but I just left it. A little while later I started to itch really bad so I got up and wiped some off. Then it was fine. I put it on at 10:30 last night, and it's 2:22pm right now, and not only have I not had any wetness ALL day, I can't smell anything either!! I didn't use anything else this morning, I wanted to see how it worked and it has so far! I've been checking myself all day and there's nothing!!!!! Now, I guess I need "I hope your antiperspirant keeps working" vibes!! It's only the first day so hopefully it doesn't stop working for some reason, but if it stays like this, I will be so happy!

I'm glad it's working for you Shannon! Just remember- do NOT put it on right after you've shaved your armpits. OUUUUUUUUUCH!

Oh good, I'm glad it seems to be working! Thanks for the feedback. Maybe I should dig out the Certain Dri after all!
