OP, I suffered with the exact same problem. You've basically described me perfectly.

Earlier this year it got so bad that I couldn't take it any more. I couldn't even focus at work because I'd constantly be thinking about my sweating and whether I had visible sweat patches. Plus it was so uncomfortable, and cold.

As others have said here, there are products out there that will help.

I've tried a couple of products. One is called Sweat Stop – specifically, this is the product I use. (That's a link to their UK site, but they also sell in USA and Canada.)

It's £20, which sounds a bit steep. But the important thing to note is that one bottle will last you the best part of a year. It's strong stuff, and believe me you don't need to use much!

First time I used it, I couldn't believe it. It really works! Like magic. My pits stayed dry the whole day! Whereas just the day before, I was going to the toilet every couple of hours and using the hand dryer to dry my underarms.

Going into work the first day after using that gave me such a huge confidence boost. I really can't put into words how much better you'll feel when you have to confidence to know you won't have uncomfortable sweat patches. It's been the single biggest boost to my self confidence all year, and I wish I tried it years ago. And when you put it in perspective, it has to be the best £20 I've ever spent.

Another product I've used is called Sweat Block, available on Amazon. It also works miracles, but I do prefer the Sweat Stop spray personally – it seems a bit stronger. These wipes are handy to have if you're on the road and don't want to carry the other bottle around. Do not use both at once – you will only need one or the other.

Okay, I'm finished with my lengthy sales pitch. I promise I'm not a paid shill! I just want you to know that there's a solution out there, and it really does work. For your own happiness, please give these products a try. You have nothing to lose – the £20 is worth the risk. You won't regret it. And then come back and tell me how it went :)

Good luck! I'm excited for you.

This can be dealt with.

Here are a few options to consider. First, Zinc will help with the stink. You can take a Zinc supplement AND use a topical ointment on your feet. If you decide to take a Zinc supplement, don't take it everyday and be mindful of your copper levels. OptiZinc has copper included although you want to supplement even a little more. The ideal zinc-to-copper ratio is 10:1.

  • Boudreaux's Butt Paste Maximum Strength Diaper Cream

    This works very well because it contains 40% Zinc. One of the highest you can find. I've used this on my feet with success and I've even used it on my face before to help with complexion issues and it never dried me out. I think using daily on your feet would be fine although I wouldn't recommend putting it on your face every day. You can find this in Walmart in the baby isle (where the Pedialyte is located). Start with a small amount and rub it in. A little goes a long way with this stuff, you don't want your feet feeling greasy all day.

  • Crystal Body Deodorant Stick Deodorant

    I bought this because I was looking for safer deodorant options. I was amazed at how well it worked on my armpits (much better than traditional deodorants containing aluminum) and the upside for you is, it even specifically mentions being used on feet to treat foot odor. I haven't done that but I imagine it would working swimmingly.

  • Nature's Way Chlorofresh

    This product is along the same lines as BodyMint, but much cheaper. It is typically used to deal with bad breath that originates from odor created in the gut, but it has also been used to treat general body odor as well. I recommend starting with the top 2 recommendations first but considering this can be tried for only ~$7, it may be worth just adding it to your odor fighting stack.

  • 10-Seconds Deodorant & Disinfectant

    I was told this is the product that bowling alleys use to disinfect the bowling shoes. I bought a can sometime ago when I was running and wanted to keep my running shoes from getting rank. I can't find it right now but I seem to recall a warning about harmful/caustic chemicals coming into contact with skin so use this one carefully if you decide to try it. You should be disinfecting your shoes anyway since it sounds like your issue could be bacterial or fungal, seeing as it spreads so rapidly to new shoes.

  • Drymax Run Hyper Thin No Show Socks

    I got these for running and I love them. They are super light and are made from a breathable mesh. The thicker your socks are, the more likely your feet are to get hot and begin sweating. These are a bit expensive but you can think of them as an investment that pays dividends.

  • Mini Moso Natural Air Purifying Bag, Charcoal

    These are designed to naturally remove odor. I keep them in my shoes when they're just sitting in my closet. I assume they are working because my shoes don't stink. They are cheap and got good reviews on Amazon. Check 'em out.

    In conclusion

    I believe if you are washing your feet thoroughly, making sure your socks are clean and your feet have some Zinc ointment rubbed into them (or the crystal deodorant applied) and your shoes are properly disinfected and dry, I think you will see an appreciable reduction in foot funk if not a complete eradication.

    Good luck.

u/Colonel_Oscopy · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The deodorant is DEFINITELY the culprit. Aluminum causes most of the yellowing. More importantly, it is probably not good for you to wear such a strong anti-antiperspirant.

First, because it is not good to clog your pores, regardless of what you are clogging them with. Sweating is a natural body process.

Second, aluminium CAN be absorbed into the body transdermally via your armpits (source). That much is clear. Whether or not it can cause harm is still up for debate. But, IMHO, if you can avoid using it, you probably should.

So, here are steps you can take to transfer away from aluminium.

  1. Look for an all natural, aluminium free deodorant. It is important to note that this will not anything like you are used to. It will NOT stop sweating. It will just help you smell better. Tom's of Maine makes some (I don't really like those, but some people swear by them). Arm and Hammer makes a nice one. Or, you can go really natural, and use something like Weleda. That is what I use, and it is just alcohol and natural oils.

  2. Trim your pit hair. Don't shave it like a woman, but trim it down like your beard. This will help to decrease sweating and bacteria growth.

  3. Wash really well in the shower. I mean scrub the shit out of those pits.

  4. Don't wear under armour or other quick-dry type shirts. Those tend to pick up odor really quickly. Wool is the best for resisting odor, and cotton is ok, but not great. Both are better than the synthetic shit.

    Try all of that and see where it leaves you. You will still sweat, but you probably won't develop an offensive odor, and your shirts won't turn yellow.

    As for the shirts that are already stained, I don't know what to tell you.
u/CARTERsauce · 16 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I am a sweaty person. I have tried all the name brand antiperspirants/deodorants. After years of crusted yellow/white stained shirts, I realized that my body seemed to compensate with more sweat, plugged up under the arms, it surfaced on my back and head. Clinical/prescription strength antiperspirants only added to the problem, and my white tees took the damage. Later I found out people, myself included, actually use too much, you only need a super thin amount applied to your underarms, don't go about it like frosting a cake.

Also thinking about the potential harm of aluminum based antiperspirants (you absorb everything through your skin), I moved on to some natural deodorants (brands like Toms) but they just didn't seem to work so well, but i did notice when I applied less deodorant, or didn't altogether, my sweat began to lessen in severity. Anytime I actually smelled (like after yardwork or a any long day in the sun), it was time for a shower anyways. After I was properly applying a thin coat, I settled on Arm & Hammers Essential Deodorant that began to alleviate my problems, notably with my clothing. No more yellow crusty shirts!

But how about some deodorant that will last you several years? Try a Thai Deodorant Stone, I've had this baby for a year now and I can attest that it works great. Nowadays I apply this to my underarms from time to time and lightly powder my feet and groin with a mix of cornstarch and talc. Life is much better now.

TLDR: Use less antiperspirant and try a deodorant stick without aluminum, like Arm & Hammer Natural Essentials, or try a Thai Deodorant Stone cause it rules. Also try applying talc/cornstarch to areas you get moist

And while we're on the topic of saving money on everyday hygienic activities, consider a safety razor (refill blades are $10 for 100 compared to $20 for 8) some nice sandalwood shave soap (I've had this bowl for a year and it doesn't really look like any is gone) and a nice aftershave (I get lots of compliments on the particular scent of this one from those who get close enough to smell it) I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging...

Before I started shaving like this, I had a bit of an acne problem and some parts of my face where I would get spots of dry skin, it's gone now. My skin is mostly clear. You're gonna get a much better shave that doesn't irritate your skin and save a ton of money when you think about the cost of Gillete Quadruple edged razors, plus how much more badass is it to shave like this? This is how your grandpa shaved. The upfront investment is a badger brush, which I called an investment because a good one will last you a lifetime.

That's my hygiene ramble.

u/rEvolutionTU · 7 pointsr/malegrooming

I feel like I've been posting this once a week in this kind of thread, not sure if it's basic enough to think about putting in the sidebar.

First of all, for all we know Aluminium chlorohydrate has no negative health effects whatsoever.

The main issue why a lot of people consider it "bad" (and why I usually recommend to not use a daily deodorant with it but instead something dedicated like this) is because the vast majority has no clue what it does, how it works and how to use it properly.

Think of it like something that shrinks your pores making it harder for sweat to come out (not entirely accurate but close enough). Now, in case you had an issue with your pores "overreacting" you just sweat less or, if they didn't "overreact" and your body still needs to dissipate heat you will sweat a little more in surrounding regions. However (this is why it's a horrible ingredient in something we use as casually as our deodorants) if you use too much of the stuff it results in the pores being like a blocked dam that's breaking, usually making you sweat more in the process. The fact that it leaves stains if used during your daily routine is just icing on the cake.

As usual, if you believe you're sweating WAY over the top just go ahead and ask your doc about it, you might have an actual medical condition that goes with it.


  • Pick a nice fresh smelling and rather neutral deodorant without aluminum chloride for daily use.
  • If you feel as if you "sweat too much" in specific regions look into a dedicated aluminum chloride product (e.g. see link above) and use it exactly like the package insert suggests (before going to bed, wash it in the morning, less is more).
  • Use a perfume to your personal liking.

    A deodorant is not supposed to make you smell awesome (that's what your perfume does) and it's not supposed to make you sweat less. It's there to give you a general fresh feeling & smell and to be there for you in a pinch if your condition is... less than optimal.
u/CharmedInBaltimore · 4 pointsr/Parenting

Where is the odor coming from? Remember because she is female she could have a yeast infection or vaginitis. I'm someone who has to wear particular deodorant or I smell. The Crystal works best for me. ( ). Keeping things shaved also helps but that may not be an option. Also remember you are her dad. Not some pedophile so don't be afraid to help if needed. Is there a female she trust that could have a heart to heart with her? Or maybe make it fun and present like a makeover/spa day. Could be a way to teach her some tricks without making her feel targeted. I also work with a lot of Young adults with autism and one thing we do is make checklist. That way steps are at forgotten and there is a routine and pattern which could be helpful for people with autism.

Finally, if the odor is coming from her clothes you can spray the hotspots like under the arms with Listerine. I do this to my gym clothes before washing them. The alcohol kills bacteria.

u/gstar1981 · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

Yes ! Moisture wicking underwear!

I work as a delivery driver in the hot and humid south and crotch rot has always been a painful/infuriating problem.

Lotions make this WORSE! I found out the hard way. I had a bad case of crotch rot every day after working a few hours so I put some lotion on it. Turns out your skin is inflamed and broken out because of the friction and moisture. You need to be DRY! I ended up with a yeast infection which is awkward as a dude.

But sometimes fancy underwear aren't enough...

So every morning I put Fresh Balls or Anti Monkey Butt on m'parts to keep me dry. They both work wonderfully, but the Fresh Balls is a lot less messy.

But sometimes fancy underwear and powders combined aren't enough... Fuck me.

So I keep Gold Bond Medicated Powder: Extra Strength in the truck. Just in case. The stuff has menthol and it super soothing.

I hope these tips help some people. And please let me know if you have any more tips!

Like. Pretty please.

u/JpSpade · 2 pointsr/funny

It does not prevent sweating. Antiperspirants are designed for that and often contain aluminum chlorohydrate. This is how I differentiate if I am confused by the labeling.

As for the smell, deodorant definitely helps but if it is a long day and you sweat a lot it can mix with your BO scent and make something unpleasant for some like skylla's example of the freshener + shit nasal DP . Try stuff out and see what works best but if you sweat a lot you may want to keep in mind the mix of scents it creates.

If you wear any cologne, you will want to look for a very mild or even completely fragrance-free deodorant. I use the crystal stick and I am pretty satisfied. The stick itself lasts a super long time as long as you don't drop it, does not leave any stains on clothing, as natural as you can get in the deo aisle and doesn't conflict with any cologne. The only drawback for me is that I have to apply a LOT to make it as effective as some other more potent deodorants but that just means rolling the rock for longer as wetting it.

I get mine from the drugstore in my area but here is their site:


u/ranalicious · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I have the same problem and I hate that I am limited to always wearing dark clothing (I live in Florida). My fiance and I were both unsatisfied with our deodorants and decided to look around on Amazon.

We have switched to using crystal deodorant for smell control and it does work! I like the Naturally Fresh crystal with aloe but the Crystal brand is good too. They are great because they don't stain clothing and they last a really long time, which kinda balances out the cost of this second product.

We also found a wonderful product called sweat block for controlling perspiration. It's a little pricey ($10/month essentially) but it's a high-strength concentrated anti-perspirant for people with hyperhidrosis in a wipe that you dab very gently onto your armpits right before bed. It does this weird twingy stinging sensation when it is absorbing into your skin but it really does work. I have noticed it is more effective if you can sleep in such a way that you won't sweat/be overly warm when you are asleep (I like blankets and sometimes it makes me too warm at night, and it doesn't properly do its thing). Read the Amazon reviews for more opinions/advice. My fiance also likes to use Cetaphil antibacterial soap only on his armpits as extra protection against smelling bad. I have mixed feelings about antibacterial soap but I sometimes use it.

I have always wanted a more natural approach to deodorant but I can't stand sweating so most "natural" kinds were unacceptable to me. In my opinion, this has been a good way to minimize extraneous potentially bad ingredients in my deodorant (fragrances, preservatives, whatever else is in clinical strength stuff) since I am just putting on a single chemical.

tl;dr sweat block wipes for antiperspirant and crystal deodorant stone for smell

u/scrub96 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

scrub96 is here to help. I have the same problem. I used to just wear cotton undershirts but that did not keep me from sweating through everything. It became impossible for me to wear tshirts or even polos without saturating the under arm area. What I have done is a three step solution.

First I started using prescription strength antiperspirant. This helped a lot over the normal stuff. Second I picked up some of these guys: . Kind of expensive and not as great as I had hoped but they definitely work better than normal undershirts. These work particularly well if you have problems in the under arm area. Lastly i use these: .

With the combination of the three things above using as directed I can pretty much where whatever I want. I was seriously considering things like botox because I was sweating through anything I owned in a matter of minutes. I also found that cutting caffeine usage down reduced the sweat output.

u/SgtPackets · 1 pointr/ITCareerQuestions

It all depends on where you are going to work/level of position.

Since it's help desk, I would recommend not going in a suit. But if you decide that the place is conservative/formal enough of a company to warrant wearing one, then do that. You'll never lose points for over dressing. It shows that you care enough about the job to make the effort to appear presentable.

My rule of thumb is basically this: Do I look presentable enough to meet with a client? Yes/No

I would recommend this.

  • Grey V-Neck undershirt (An undershirt should NOT be visible, which is why you get a v-neck with sleeves)
  • White/Light Blue Dress Shirt (No French Cuffs Please...)
  • Black V-Neck Jumper (Lambswool if you can afford it. Otherwise a cotton blend is fine)
  • Blue Tie (Full Windsor with dimple please)
  • Charcoal Grey or Navy Dress Trousers
  • Black Belt/Brown Belt
  • Polished Black Oxfords (Or Brown Oxfords if you're wearing Navy)

    Now, along with this I recommend taking your suit jacket with you in the car. This is for two reasons:

  1. If you see it's more formal than what you first thought, you can wear the suit jacket over the jumper.
  2. If it's casual you can dress down your attire by removing your tie. I think wearing a shirt by itself just looks odd without a tie/jumper on. So I opt to cover it.

    Here are two examples of that I mean.

    Finally, for the love of god have your suit tailored. Doesn't matter how well your suit is put together if you're walking around with a sack on.

    Good Luck! Hope your interview goes well!

    PS: (If you have a perspiration problem I recommend this)

u/krissycole87 · 28 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Dove GoSleeveless active ingredient is: Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly (15.2%)
Try finding another deodorant with this same percentage or higher of AZT Gly.
For what its worth it seems they have some available on Amazon, must be the last of the stock cuz its $40 for a twin pack

If you are a sweat machine like me, I would look into Certain Dri. I get the prescription strength roll on which is intended to be used 3x a week (they have a stick version now that is not as strong that is intended for daily use but I like the strong stuff better)
You apply 3x a week at night before bed. After using it now for 9 or so months, I can happily say I sweat about 80% less than I used to. It has completely changed my life. Of course I sweat during a workout or strenuous activity, but my day to day I dont usually sweat at all. I can wear colored shirts again!

Its just an anti-perspirant, so every morning I still use a deodorant just to add some freshness. But now I can use any mild deodorant that I want, even the really cheap ones. And no longer need to load up on deodorant/antiperspirant combo products and pray for less sweating. I cant say enough good things about Certain Dri. If you read some of the reviews on Amazon you will see 99% of people who use Certain Dri saying the same thing. It really has been a game changer for me.

u/brut88 · 1 pointr/nursing

I know it’s not in your supply room but it’s amazing what a good pair of underwear can do to help. Check out the uniqlos airism line.

Fresh So Dry Fresh Balls, 3.4 fl oz 2 Pack

This stuff also works wonders.

u/birthday-party · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This won't fly with OP, but I wanted to comment in case this might work for you. I have excessive sweat in my underarms and have used prescription deodorant (Drysol), which dried me out severely (painfully). I have since done Botox treatment several times (thanks insurance), which is really effective. Happy to answer questions about that.

I have had really good results since with using SweatBlock wipes in tandem with my regular antiperspirant, since I moved cities and haven't found a doctor to resume Botox just yet. Great stuff.

u/Dork_Vader · 1 pointr/AskMen

As mentioned, Certain Dri is pretty good. As is Drysol.

One problem area for me is the forehead. One solution that I have found that works quite well are SweatBlock antiperspirant towelettes. They are not intended for your face, but I use it on my forehead and it works great with no side effects and lasts for a week or more. Just don't apply it in excess or more frequently as it will irritate the skin.

There is also a website, Kleinert’s that is devoted entirely to products to address excessive sweating. They have antiperspirants, wipes, inserts, special clothing, etc. They might have something that will help as well.

u/kachapati · 2 pointsr/AskDocs

Not a Dr.

I have a medical condition that can at times cause excessive perspiration, not just the pits, primarily face, neck, throat and upper chest. I just recently found out about this they look like wet wipes, you pat the area before bed and they're supposed to help reduce sweat for one week. I have so far only used one but I had tremendous improvement. So much that I only started to notice the excessive perspiration on the afternoon of the 7th day, it was rather cool and I had to stop and realize my sweat issue really has nothing to do with weather and that I had been free of it for a week. I'd say it worked for me for about 8 hours less than a full week, which to me equals success.

u/Photik · 5 pointsr/adderall

SweatBlock Antiperspirant - Clinical Strength - Reduce Sweat up to 7-days per Use

Highly effective when you start using it, but it's losing its magic for me (ordered it 11 times so you can tell how I liked this product and its benefits).

Also look into fish oil supplements as that helps your heart function better. Perhaps that has a correlation with the amount we sweat when we use our meds.

u/flojoTheAwesome · 1 pointr/malegrooming

What this guy said. I used to have a huge perspiration problem but it's been manageable since I started using Certain Dri. If that doesn't work check out Maxim Antiperspirant, which is stronger but much more expensive.

It's amazing what not having sweaty pits will do for his confidence, it's totally worth the money.

u/chadnik · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Again, I like Bathhouse's so far. I used to use Eau de Minimes, which smells heavenly and works well, but stopped after seeing it had a medium-high rating on the EWG database (but then I read that the EWG may not be the most trustworthy, so I might try it again). Soapwalla's and Lush's Aromaco also work great, but irritated my armpits because of the baking soda over time (my bf still uses Aromaco without problem, though). Also have read amazing things about Lavilin but haven't tried it.

u/Berg9940 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

Get him some Gamer Grip, that stuff is great and under $15! Under $10 on the site, but maybe end up more than Amazon after shipping. BTW-If you ever do look into buying him a Scuf, I would lookup Cinch instead. I have both and Cinch was cheaper and they are arguably equal in which one is better. Spending that kind of cash though, either way, it would be better to let the cat out of the bag and let him choose the build customization, unless you know exactly how he likes to play.

u/SpagetiJonsnSupaFuka · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I really like Arm and Hammer Natural Essentials deodorant. It has either fresh scent (which I love, like stand-there-and-smell-the-stick love) or unscented. Its aluminum and paraben free

u/vespria · 2 pointsr/wedding

My fiancé actually has hyperhydrosis, so he sweats a LOT, and was really unhappy thinking about sweating at the wedding. Anyway, for the last month he's been using/testing out a roll on deodorant type thing called Driclor. It has to be used right when he get's out of the shower for it to work, and he says that it stings the first two hours-ish after applying, but it stops him from sweating for about 24 hours. I would definitely test it out before hand, but it may be worth a shot. Good luck!

u/adhdaffectee · 5 pointsr/ADHD

As an avid gamer, and someone whose genetic line leans toward sweatiness, I empathize with your issue. When I play games, I often have a hand towel with me - even at tournaments - and a few people look at me funny. But the next time I go, I see two or three people doing the same thing once they saw me do it.

Additionally, I use this before playing:

Haven't really tried any others for a comparison, but this one has generally worked pretty well for me. Hope this helps.

u/Bunzilla · 13 pointsr/beauty

Certain-dri roll on antiperspirant is literally the only thing that worked for me to stop my armpits from sweating profusely. You put it on at night (not after shaving though!) and the next few days you don’t even need deodorant, but I still used it to keep feeling fresh! I actually don’t even need to use it anymore but it honestly changed my life.

And you don’t need a prescription - they have it at cvs. Just make sure you get the roll on and not the solid as it’s not nearly as effective.

u/6ixnogood · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I had this problem. I bought this and haven't had any sweat problems since.

Check it -- Sweat Block

I would sweat so much at work, even though I just sit at a computer. Now I never worry or event think about pit marks or whatever. I only use some deodorant in the morning so I can get a nice scent.

Trust me...its damn good. I had my doubts before I bought it, but was super surprised and happy that it worked.

u/Usernamef2 · 1 pointr/Showerthoughts

Try Maxim. It's the only antiperspirant that actually worked for me. I literally begin sweating as soon as I get out of the shower. Be sure to heed the warnings in the review though. That shit burns if you put too much on. The first night I didn't think it'd be that bad, but trust me, IT IS. I was literally up the entire night with my armpits itching like crazy. I had literally scratched them until they bled. But for the first time, I didn't sweat! Yay?

After learning how much I needed on me, I would shower the night before, apply the antiperspirant, and go about my business the next day. There would be times where I would feel body increase in temperature, and feel myself sweating all over, but nothing from my armpits. I'm telling you, this shit works. The best part is that it stays on even if you shower. Obviously it's not as great as before and you might get some wetness, but it's nothing compared to what I had before. It also helps if you start wearing an undershirt, if you're able to. For me it seems to "insulate" me somehow and keep me from sweating more. No clue if that's actually what's happening, but it's the best answer I have.

u/bruce656 · 6 pointsr/Fitness

Yeah, compression or a good suggestion. Look into getting one of these, helps keeps the thunder in place. I tried a more expensive one, but I like this one better. Also, this stuff is also really good to protect against chafing.

u/blakenichols1500 · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

I would assume your regular physician. My Old Spice is labeled prescription strength but available over the counter. You can buy other over the counter high strength antiperspirant like this one which SHOULD help if not I'd talk to my physician and see what course he recommends.

u/toegram · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Arm and Hammer somehow made me smell worse halfway through the day than if I hadn't applied deodorant at all so I recently started using this. It's kind of goofy and you need to apply it on clean, damp underarms but it's working pretty well. I also like that it's totally fragrance free. On my recent return to the U.S. from a trip abroad, after rifling through my shit the customs agent told me that a lot of her coworkers it too so idk it must be good??

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Maxim Antiperspirant. It was a lifesaver for me when I was a stocker at Walmart. I used it on my face because I would always drip sweat, my hair would get stuck to my face, and it looked like I just walked in out of the rain.

It takes a few days of applying for it to work its best. After the first week of applying every day, I would only apply it once every 3-4 days. No more sweating on my face. I could bust my ass and work as hard as I could without dripping all over everything.

It's also useful when in crowded/hot places or if you get nervous easily. Boosted my confidence 10 fold.

I wish I had discovered it a long time ago.

u/washboard · 1 pointr/crossfit

There are a few antiperspirant hand lotions on the market. I've tried Carpe with pretty good success as long as you apply it 10 minutes prior to getting sweaty. I've used it for crossfit, disc golf, ball golf, and softball. When using it during crossfit, I found that sometimes I still needed to chalk up, but not nearly as often and it lasted much longer. I'd use it a competitions and it would last most of the day. I don't use it for crossfit much anymore because I couldn't justify paying for it when I have buckets full of chalk to play in. I still use it for the other sports though.

One thing to note is that it doesn't completely stop sweaty palms, but reduces it significantly. That's a good thing though because if you didn't sweat at all, it would probably create more friction. More friction leads to more blisters and tears.

u/Random813random · 1 pointr/AskMen

I don't suffer from excessive sweating but I use this and it works so so well. I want people who have a sweat or odor issue to try this. It can be found at Amazon but some drug stores and Wal-Mart stores have it. It's inexpensive and lasts forever.
I would recommend using it before bedtime and also right after showering. For best results, your skin needs to be dampened or just put a little water on the top of it. You can put deodorant over it too. It will take a week or two to get full results.

I have very sweaty hands sometimes. I've recently picked up antiperspirant hand lotion to see if it helps and it definitely makes a difference. I still get a bit clammy but it's much more manageable.

The lotion I bought is from Carpe at

It's expensive though. If anyone has a cheaper solution to sweaty hands, I'd love to hear it.

u/marypies78 · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

In the summer when I'm going sockless or wearing sandals, I absolutely will not leave the house without a foot deodorant! I really like Carpe Antiperspirant Foot Lotion, but there are similar products at the drugstore. I don't have smelly feet, but a hot day can defeat the best of us! I just feel so much more confident knowing there is a 0% chance anyone is going to get a whiff of foot odor from me!

u/colenotphil · 26 pointsr/hiphopheads

This is gonna sound like some hippy shit but Kdot is part of black hippy so hang on a sec: most deodorant+antiperspirant contains metals which are bad for clothes and more importantly may or may not play a factor in various cancers, though the jury is very much still out on this.

Regardless, for 2 years I have used a combination of salt-based antiperspirant (link) and using cologne as my deodorant. I am consistently complimented on my scent, I feel clean and great, and none of my shirts have even remote staining. I don't like to wear undershirts under button-downs so it is very important to me that I not be staining them. Oh, and the antiperspirant I linked lasts 1.5 years easy, mine is going on 2 years now for like $4.

Fuck Old Spice and their marketing, you don't need that shit and it smells horrible. I don't have proof but knowing large mutinational corporations, you can make a decently educated guess that they purposefully developed a product that sorta works but only for a short time, because then how would they sell more of it? It's like planned obsolescence but more so planned rapid depletion.

Kudos to you for taking your training seriously enough to document and reflect on your performance and make changes where needed. That’s a winner’s mindset.

For oily grips, I can’t recommend this enough. It’s a huge help to n increasing grip without making your hands gritty or super tacky.

Haven't used anything fro my face because it isn't an issue, but I googled some time a go for a solution for my sweaty hands and I came up on a lot of stuff some of it has mixed reviews on amazon so I'd recommend doing a little more research before you buy and maybe you'll find a better product, but there's this for your face.

And there are more products like this or this for hands.

Actually this might be what you're looking for, read the reviews and questions for more info.

u/como1103 · 5 pointsr/pics

Yep, this worked for me too. In high school/college I would wear an undershirt, shirt, and hoodie in the winter, and within an hour have sweat rings the size of dinner plates. For a while I would fold socks and tuck them into the sleeves of my undershirt just to stay so up sweat. Even tried maxi pads... they worked the best until I found Certain Dri.

I've only tried the liquid roll-on:

Certain Dri Prescription Strength Clinical Antiperspirant Roll-On 1.20 oz

u/okitstimefordinner · 2 pointsr/Advice

Honestly I can’t recommend certain dri antiperspirant enough it works so well for me. You apply it at night and it lasts for like 2 to 3 days each time which is nice if you’re always in a hurry in the morning like me. I’ve been using it for ages now and I’ve only had to re-buy it once.

I'll try to report back and let you know how they work, but it could be a week or two before I really have a good idea. I want to make the rounds with antiperspirants before I try anything more drastic. And if antiperspirants don't work, I may just try acceptance because I am concerned about some of the other options out there.

u/CruellaDeBitch · 3 pointsr/blogsnark

Oops I meant Certain Dri (Drysol is prescription) and I get this one. There are two formulations and I prefer the most potent strength.

ETA: Read the directions on the box! My routine is use at night on clean feet, let the formula dry all the way. Then put socks on. Wash feet in the morning. This way I don't stain my socks or shoes I care about.

I live in Houston, so yeah. I was also on meds that can (as in please stop I look like a pig!) make people more prone to sweating. This stuff has been a massive help. It's touchy stuff & please please please do a test patch, I dip a qtip in it and swab it on where needed.

There's a difference for sure. Baby powder is just talcum powder whereas Gold Bond has other medicated shit thrown in it. I use this stuff I found on Amazon, I like it because it adds a bit of Calamine powder with the talc.

Also, if you're not spending at least $25 on a pair of boxers or briefs, you're missing out big time. I've tried Patagonia, REI brand, but I've found Ice Breaker has the best Merino Wool undies, hands down. I like their Beast 150 series.

u/hardrockfoo · 5 pointsr/pics

Here is what I use. It's the same thing I'm assuming. An antiperspirant for your hands. the product is actually better just to use it every night before bed when your hands aren't sweating as much and it helps keep your hands dry though the whole day. You also don't have to tell your friends what that bottle of "gamer goo" is because it just looks like a bottle of lotion

u/bikerwalla · 0 pointsr/wicked_edge

You're going to want an alum block to rub over your wet face right after the shave. It tightens your pores, disinfects, and controls any bleeding if you have cut yourself or scraped your skin. If you want one purpose-made for shaving, you can get the one by RazoRock, but you should save a few bucks and instead use a Crystal Body Deodorant; it's chemically identical and comes in a plastic applicator that is easier to hold.

After rinsing off the alum, I would use a toner splash, like Thayers witch hazel and lavender or Ogalalla bay rum, followed by a balm, like Nivea Aftershave for Sensitive Skin.

u/svu_fan · 2 pointsr/walmart

May I also recommend Sweat Block? Sweat Block I know we sold it in our deodorant aisle years ago, don’t know if we still do. They’re these stronger clinical strength wipes that you pat on your armpits and it lasts for up to a week. You can use deodorant as usual. I used to use it all the time when I was IMS because I sweated so much in the backroom, and it was a lifesaver. I’ve been back on my store’s mod team for almost 3 years now, tho, and don’t have a need for Sweat Block anymore.

Also, how old is the fragrances you’re using? They do expire after so long. Just another thing to be mindful of. I strongly recommend cutting back on fragrance application.

u/estrelle84 · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Sure thing! :) I didn’t find any information about it being an antiperspirant, unfortunately, but reading through the amazon reviews, it seems quite a few people find it more effective than their old regular deodorant (Dove, Secret, etc.), which is cool, especially considering that the Crystal deodorant in the stick form is primarily made of mineral salts.

u/Cyrax89721 · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

It has more of a consistency of frosting, so no crumbs. Applies perfectly. I had issues with nearly every other style I would try until landing on this product. Old Spice Sweat Defense plus using Driclor once a week is the perfect combination, and it only took me about 30 years to find it!

u/Weenie · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I haven't used one, but I'm told that they do. More than anything, they help keep airflow under you which keeps you dry. A dry butt is a happy butt on motorcycle trips. It takes very little moisture to get you chafing and very uncomfortable.

Speaking of which, it's good to apply some Gold Bond or Anti Monkey Butt powder to your unmentionable areas before hitting the road.

I can't use "normal" deodorants as they always irritate the shit out of my pits and have messed up some shirts like you mentioned. I use this stuff right now and it is really good. It keeps me smelling good until I get home from work. Another option could be essential oils as they do a really good job of keeping you smelling good (a few friends do this, i've never tried it tho.) I also used to use some Lush deodorant that worked really well but i don't remember which one.

I don't know what sorts of deodorants you've tried but I use the roll-on Crystal deodorant and LOVE IT.
Tbh I don't generally sweat a ton but in the summer in the South it does a great job of countering disgusting boob sweat, which is a major accomplishment.
It doesn't have a scent and even when I do end up sweating a decent amount, it doesn't smell like anything.

u/10noop20goto10 · 7 pointsr/LifeProTips

Alternative LPT: Switch to one of those salt stone deodorants.

I threw out all of my old white undershirts (I keep around 30 on hand. I'm pretty serious about white t's), and made the switch from antiperspirant at the same time. No more pit stains! Haven't looked back. It's amazing!

u/rasterbated · 5 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I don't think it would be that strange. Do you live in a hot climate? That might make it more acceptable.

u/almightywhacko · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Potassium alum (baber's alum) like that stick you linked to is intended for use on your face. Deodorant alum is almost always ammonium alum, which often stings when applied to your face but works better as a deodorant.

And not to get into too much detail.. but why would you ever want to rub something on your face that you have already rubbed into your armpits? Sure you may have showered first or whatever.. but even then I don't think I would want to use the same product on both areas.

Lose weight if possible, moisture wicking underwear (Look at something like this,) and try a powder like Gold Bond or this(I usually apply it after drying off when I get out of the shower, it's got a pleasant cooling sensation) but any talc powder will help so if you want to go cheaper try baby powder.

u/barinthus0 · 8 pointsr/xxfitness

So, I've tried a ton of "natural" deodorants in my quest for a safer alternative to conventional antiperspirants, here's what I've got.

My absolute and utter favorite is the Crystal Essence roll on. It comes in a few scents and has a , it does not leave a residue and is the absolute closest thing you can find to a natural antiperspirant. As long as you apply it to clean skin, it does the job well. Basically, it's my holy grail of deodorants.

Other common natural deodorant sticks, like Tom's, Alba, Nature's Gate, etc.. the deo will go on "wet" feeling and tend to stay that way until it dries. Which can be uncomfortable/annoying for most people. I've found most of these will leave a residue behind.

Natural spray deodorants are so-so, from what I've found. The Weleda rose spray deo works pretty well but can smell alittle weird after awhile. No residue though!

u/toniMPLS · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I usually wear toe cover/cushion things like these which covers the part of my feet that have the most issues in certain shoes. Having that thin bit of material in between my feet and the shoes makes a huge different. If I'm wearing shoes that don't work with those, or for different parts of my feet, I use this stuff. I sometimes need to touch up during the day, depending on how much I'm on my feet, but it really helps prevent blisters.

u/nubbinator · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Crystal deodorant should help with the smell. Get him to put some on his feet after hopping out of the shower. It seems weird, but it works pretty well.

Get a good deoderant like this and a bottle of good cologne.

After a shower, with the body still slightly wet apply deoderant and spray 1 or 2 mists of cologne in the air and walk into it. This is all you will need.

u/mysetofstars · 1 pointr/opiates

I completely relate. Fent makes me sweat an insane amount. And I'm not normally a very sweaty gal outside my pits where apparently ALL my sweat decides it likes to leave my body (lol). But when using fent I sweat from every hair follicle on top of my head to behind my knees to my freaking feet.

I try to always have a cold water bottle with me. I pop it on the back of my neck when I start to really overheat and it helps stop it in its tracks sometimes. You can also buy certain deodorants to help with the excessive pit sweating (Certain Dri is the best IME: Certain Dri).

You might like the hand lotion stuff I started using recently. It feels kinda gross on your hands, and you have to put it on during the day, right before aerials is no good, but it really does help. I straight up forgot to use any dry hands at a hammock class after a couple days of it.

Try this stuff called Carpe. It's an anti-perspirant lotion. I've tried all those little tricks with no effect then I found this stuff and am honestly blown away. It's a little pricey but I am very happy with the results.

u/intheafternoon · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use the unscented crystal deodorant stick (amazon). If I do sweat under my arms while using this, there's no smell. I use the dry stick version so it is kind off a hassle to use, my underarm as well as the stick have to be wet in order for it to get on my skin, then it has to dry completely. But it always works. I have tried certain dri but it gave me a rash and it made my armpits sweat even more, and I feel like any deodorant/antiperspirant with a scent smells way too strong.

u/d0rit0 · 5 pointsr/india

avoid spicy foods; if you're overweight/obese, get fit! They sweat more.

bath daily, stay hydrated, not by alcohols/soft drinks but lemon salt water/soda water or just plain chilled water! Keep a bottle with you everytime! Also, take a few tbsps of apple cider vinegar atleast 3 times a day!

Get a high strength aluminium-based antiperspirant(not a Deo) I'd suggest this or, this

I use this as my anti-perspirant, because nothing available in the drugstore prevents the sweating. And then I use this in the Lychee scent for a deodorant.

You could always try Gamer Grip. It's a tad on the expensive side but you can make it last, and it DOES actually work, from personal experience.

u/chordsimple · 6 pointsr/yoga

Another vote for the crystal deodorant...the key is to apply a lot fresh out of the shower. It works by inhibiting the smelly bacteria from starting to grow...once it's there the deodorant can't do anything. But as long as you do that it works great! I like the chamomile one but the unscented is fine too.

u/bozzwtf · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Use a washcloth (really scrub) when you shower and a body powder to stay fresh. My friends swear by Bálla, but good ole Gold Bond does the trick for me. Watch out for the menthol brand, it can be a bit much for some.

Edit: In the meantime, just wear this shirt everywhere. Because I can't...

u/NapoleonThrownaparte · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Me too, I'm nosey about the change even if I can't afford it.

If I may make another suggestion, assuming you don't already: particularly if you're going to put proper money into aftershave then consider changing anything else scented so it doesn't interfere.

  1. Pure witch hazel or an alum block are unscented and are for literal after shaving, not in the "part of your outfit" sense. I prefer the former since it's liquid and I like to keep the splash-on feeling. WH can come with or without alcohol, it's down to preference.

  2. Use a mineral salt instead of deoderant. YMMV I'm sure, but I've found it better in every way, sucks that they tend to aim it at the chemical-fear market. I wouldn't even have looked at it if I hadn't given up on the rest and found such positive reviews. Here's an example.
u/Callque · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been able to extend the wear out of my clothes by wearing a cotton tank underneath my tops (I love the $2 ones from F21, they're 100% cotton and wash & breathe really well), switching to Himalayan crystal salt deodorant (this one is my favorite), hanging up my clothes immediately upon arriving home, and switching to natural fabrics. The tank will absorb most of the sweat and keep your clothes clean, and the salt deodorant will kill any odor-causing bacteria while also relieving you of gross smelling old deodorant mixed with sweat smells in your shirts. Hanging your clothes up when you get home lets them air out sufficiently to where you should be able to get 2-3 wears out of them. Synthetic fibers don't allow your clothes to breathe so they will trap in the smell. My linen/cotton/silk shirts can go WAY longer without being washed than my polyester ones. The only way I can get more than one wear out of a synthetic top is if it's sleeveless.

For your sweating:

I used to sweat soooo freakin much, I didn't want to raise my hand in class blah blah blah. I used this and it TOTALLY fixes it. The only side effect is that if you put too much on/in the beginning when you put it on, your underarms can get really itchy.

I got a product called sweat block you apply once a week, plus clinical strength deodorant daily. Really controlled my sweating. I usually only need it 1-2x a month. I also used it under my boobs haha. There’s also a prescription version by a different name.

Ofc check with your doctor about medical concerns, etc, esp if this is a new problem. Make sure you don’t have a thyroid disorder for example. And if you sweat less you can be more prone to overheating so hydrate properly and try to stay cool.

u/donkeykingdom · 1 pointr/AskDocs

Sweatblock works wonders, and the active ingredient (Aluminum Chloride) is 14% whereas Certain Anti-Dry is 12%. I initially had to apply it 2-3 times over 1.5 weeks to see the difference, but since then I only need to use it once every 2-3 weeks to maintain, and I live in a humid area of Texas. Now I can be covered in sweat at the gym or outside, but my underarms are bone-dry. Just make sure you follow the instructions and use it in the evening right after a shower and let it set in overnight before you do any physical activity.

i used to use something like this

at night. Then use regular deoderant during the day, and cheap undershirts help sweat from showing.

u/Sasquatch_be_me · 2 pointsr/shaving

This is the greatest thing ever. Check it out. (Amazon link)

u/IIIRuin · 14 pointsr/MakeupAddicts

Using an anti-perspirant like The Face Saver under your makeup can help a ton.

u/lavaspice · 2 pointsr/pics

Check out a product called Driclor, it’s available on Amazon from the UK. You put this antiperspirant on for a week straight and then once a week after and your armpits are drier than the Sahara desert. One $20 bottle lasts me like 8 months normally, and I just use a regular deodorant on the daily.

> Rubbing causes the cologne to dissipate faster because it's spread over a wider surface area. You should press your wrists together instead.

I'm resistant to most anti-perspirants so I use this:

It's unscented. You put it on the night before and then you basically don't sweat at all the next day. It's awesome.

Edit: If you put it on two or more days in a row, the effect lasts for longer (e.g. two nights in a row might last for 4 days). I usually end up using it ~3 times a week.

u/StapleGun · 3 pointsr/ultrarunning

I use Gold Bond Friction Defense and it's always worked great for me. It's also a lot cheaper than body glide.

u/jasminedunning · 1 pointr/ehlersdanlos

I have this too! Always from my scalp weirdly and it doesn’t sound like the worst thing and it’s not but it majorly impacts me daily and just makes me feel horrible. I have been tested for dysautonomia but don’t seem to have it but the sweating still persists and has for years and years.

I know Botox is meant to help but it’s expensive/ not available everywhere. The only thing I’ve ever found help, sadly if used frequently I find it’s effectiveness wears off, is odaban. It’s suitable for the scalp, although depending on hair thickness difficult to get to the skin, and face and body.

Odaban Antiperspirant

It’s super effective but seems to be less and less effective the more it’s used. I usually save it for specific occasions etc. Also follow the instructions. Use it at night then wash off in the morning. If you sweat in the night because it reacts with the water I think it can burn and sting very badly (but causes no damage and goes when washed off)

Apologies is you’ve already tried this and good luck!

u/Haziku · 8 pointsr/AskMen

Have you considered Manpons?

Seriously though, baggy clothes help, A/C helps more, and if all else fails, well, there's a Anti Monkey Butt Powder with Calamine that has some good ratings.

It's a tub, not a tube. I was trying to post a picture but my image search doesn't give me a link on my phone, so:

It isn't nearly enough product to cause issues at airport security, and even if it was its closer to a solid than a liquid.

u/eds1609 · 1 pointr/IAmA

I'll throw out the brand Maxim. It worked much better for me than Certain Dri.

u/SylphsAndSnowflakes · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Gold Bond makes an anti-friction stick that is amazing as well and doesn't wear off as quickly as deodorant seems to for me.

This is the one, but I found it cheaper at Walgreens than on Amazon if you're in the US.

u/BitterLumpkin · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I've dealt with this forever, it ruins everything. Here's what I've found works.

  • Pick up some Odaban. Make sure to follow the directions! This is strong stuff, one spray before bed DO NOT shower before using it. I've gotten down to using it once a week, but it will sting and itch if you abuse it.
  • Use an Anti-antiperspirant with a high Aluminum percentage. I like something with around 19%, also the paste style seems to work better and stain shirts a lot less than solids. My brand is Old Spice Sweat Defense. Use that every morning. We're trying for a 1-2 punch of sweat combat here!

    I've been where you are nothing but black t-shirts and a million undershirts. This is my routine and its working pretty awesomely for me. I've gotten to where I can wear a button-up shirt without an undershirt even on the hottest days.
u/ivebeenthereb4 · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

oh man i feel for you, OP. I've had this my whole life too. The only thing that has realllllly helped me is this special deodorant. Not like the stuff you get in CVS. I believe it is called Maxim. You can get it on Amazon: -- have you ever tried it?
I've been using it since I was in High School. And i swear by it now. I went from having to apply it every night before bed to only using it maybe 1x month 10 years later. Over time it has actually all but ceased my excessive sweating. (I'd read this could happen but was not a believer until it actually happened to me). Anyways, if you haven't tried it I would suggest checking it out. It really saved me.
(Should also mention that for a while applying the deodorant was not a pleasant experience. It often burned. Over time though this totally faded as a side effect too. Power through it - I don't think you'll regret it)

u/Gleeful_Robot · 3 pointsr/AskWomenOver30

I happened to read about these two products today in a lifehacker newsletter I receive, perhaps they may help? [Carpe]() foot antiperspirant or [Sweat Block](). I had no idea such products existed until this morning and the Amazon reviews rate them as excellent. Also I have read that 20 min black tea foot soaks helps with the smell allegedly, never tried it, so ymmv.

As to why they sweat so much, it's probably hyperhidrosis, which is a fancy way of saying overactive sweat glands. Usually it's hereditary, kicking in around puberty. I have a couple of family members who suffer from it. They are otherwise healthy except for the excessive sweating. There may be other medical causes, especially if it occurs later in life, but usually has other symptoms with it at some point.

Edit: a typo

u/Oranos_Rex · 1 pointr/internetparents

It sounds similar to something a friend of mine with a similar problem got. He said he had to apply it every now and then at night and it would stop sweating but that it also caused a stinging sensation - from the reviews that doesn't seem to be the case, and it also seems to be put on each night and then keeps you dry all night, but could you just add your 2 cents on how it feels when applying it/how long it lasts for? THanks

u/olds442guy · 1 pointr/guns

Some shooters at USPSA use ProGrip. I haven't used it, so I have no idea how good it is...

I use this occasionally (usually the night before shooting) and it's worked well for me to reduce palm sweat.

I don't have profuse hand sweat though, it's more mild. Like doesn't affect me any other times, but my hands get a little slick when gripping a gun and it's hot out, and having them dry improves my grip/control significantly. I'm not sure how well the above things would work if the sweat is really bad, but hopefully that helps.

u/Slggyqo · 2 pointsr/MurderedByWords

Other steps:

Don’t grow more body hair than you’re willing to support.

Use extra strength anti-perspirant, not a deodorant. (I’ve heard this shit works wonders, never tried it myself. my sweat doesn’t smell unless I go HARD. East Asian Genetics what.)

Wash the ducking clothes.

HANG UP THE TOWELS AFTER USING THEM. And—in line with the towel thing-let the rest of your space air out too. Your video game/anime/waifu dungeon needs to breathe.

u/AgentOrangutan · 3 pointsr/myfriendwantstoknow

A deodorant that is designed to STOP sweating has worked for me in the past, and I have the same problem as you - whatever I do, I sweat within hours of being clean. I use

Smelly penis? Try putting shower gel on it whilst it's dry, just for a minute or so before you shower. Seems to make it cleaner in my experience.

Shower in the morning! Showering at night means you've then got 8 hours of smell buildup as you get hot and bothered in bed before you see anyone.

Also shower every day... Seriously, you're in the minority if you don't bathe every day? You're not ill, or a lazy teenager so..?

Good luck!

u/UtahSalamander · 2 pointsr/mormon

Oxyclean in the wash.

To prevent discoloration in the pits of the tops, stop using antiperspirant deodorant. Use something like Odaban at night and regular deodorant during the day.

Beyond that, buy new ones more frequently.

u/Skeetermcgavin2018 · 1 pointr/JoeRogan

I had hyper hydrosis but in the armpits

There is a prescription strength antiperspirant called certain dri that was the only thing short of surgery that worked for me. It’s active ingredient is aluminum though which I’ve read can be a factor in causing dementia. So there’s that.

Pro tip DO NOT put it on after the shower! Hurts like a bitch because it instantly shrinks your pores.

You can also try something like this.

This blocks at least some of the sweat. Some say some of the stuff in this thing may not be healthy in the long run, but I doubt the occasional use does anything. Best applied after a shower the night before.

My god, Farty Mcgee is right! This could be a game changer, I found these on amazon that sound promising, or they'll give you cancer immediately.

u/j0dd · 2 pointsr/Fitness

have you ever heard about hyperhidrosis?

i went through a similar experience - underarms sweating profusely even if i was sitting entirely still. odaban was the only product i ever found to ever cure it. i have to re-use it maybe a few times throughout the year and i'm fine. i definitely encourage you to consult with your family/doctor/whomever before committing to this product, but i thought i'd share it with you regardless. i know how frustrating it can be.

edit: you may want to stop the preworkout for now to see if that helps, or at least switch brands.

u/maxfliddh · 2 pointsr/leaves

This totally happened to me, even after 3-4 weeks. Can't explain it but I totally got this product SweatBlock and that works. After one application which is supposed to last a week, it has lasted two. Try it out, it will help.

u/FreeLachman · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Certain Dri doesn't work for me so tried [Driclor] ( and it is AMAZING!!! You apply it every day until you stop sweating and then you only need to apply it every so often to keep you from sweating. I used to sweat even in the winter time and in the summer it was just awful, I could barely make it out of the house. I only switched to Driclor a few months ago and it's been a game changer, my armpits never sweat anymore.

I use this for playing call of duty. It keeps your hands dry. I was having the same problem with the pencil and I have this a try. It works great.

Gloves? Cotton gloves or gardening gloves. Or try surgical gloves. Or rubber gloves. you can get gloves at the drugstore or the painting store. Go hog wild and get leather driving gloves.

you can get special antiperspirant for hands.

I use SweatBlock wipes. You only have to use one a week, and the antiperspirant lasts the whole time. They're a little pricey, but you get an 8 week supply. They also work really well if you get sweat between your thighs in the summer.

u/gwh21 · 1 pointr/adderall

this stuff is the best i used to just be sitting around in bed on a normal day and my armpits would sweat through my shirt.

first week i went 2 days in a row using this product and (mon/tues) and on wednesday my armpits were dry as a bone. If you do take that route, lay off the deodorant for a couple days. after that first go, one spray on a wednesday or thursday night would keep me almost sweat free all week.

and one bottle will last roughly 4-5 months in my experience.

Anhydrol Forte

All these products are for topical application to help deal with HH. I have personal experience with both driclor and anhydrol forte and both work. My only complaint with using them is when applied on my feet or underarms it can produce a stinging sensation. Once applied and working I also sometimes feel a tightness on my hands and feet when they are trying to sweat but cannot.
This said it is worth it for the cost of the product and treatment results.
They may not be the 30% you are after but I can confirm that they work even at 20%.
