Suffer, no advice. And pretty much all the time unless I’m still and cool.

@Twyla_Smith:  Have you tried using the crystal natural antiperspirant?  It used to work pretty well for me when I was a teen.

Now I use men’s Mitchum unscented and it works pretty well for me.

Clinical strength deodorant. You apply at night and it lasts through the next day. I use Secret and love it. I also used some CertainDri for my wedding.

@Twyla_Smith:  I find that using baby powder before the deoderant can help, I also find that rubbing alcohol can help as well

I had a problem excessive underarm sweat a few years back with that in high school and college.  It ended when I left my early 20s so I think it was hormonal.  I ended up using certain dry, which is a type of anti-persprint which closes up your pores under your arms and limits the amount you sweat out.  You actually put it on at night, and can get it at CVS for 5 bucks.  

I found it HUGELY helpful because I was massively embarassed by the sweat.  I would only wear black shirts so you couldn’t see it!  I’m really glad I’m past that

I had this problem when I was a teenager and my dr prescribed me Drysol.  It worked so well that after using it 2x/week for two or three years, I haven’t used it regularly for five or six years and I don’t have a sweating issue anymore.

I have the same problem, but only when I wear strapless tops INCLUDING my wedding dress 🙁 I will maybe try certain dry!

Drysol works well, and there are other generic brands. Prescription only. Topical, easy to apply and works after one or two applications. Much more feasible than botox injections.

I just suffer, I’ve tried everything I can think of (besides Botox, my sister used it and while she doesn’t sweat from her armpits anymore, she sweats elsewhere. Lets just say she only wears dark pants now.)  Black shirts are my best friend.
