I used Certain Dri before.  It worked great for me.

I also use Certain Dri, It says to only use it a few times a week, but when I first started I put it on everynight…once i got it under control i only have to use it a few times a week. that at night and a normal antipersperant in the morning work great for me!

I don’t know if I’vethese the wedding yet but there are thing that literally look like sanitary pads for your underarms. Look awful but they stick to the armpits of ur dress and still elevate this problem (Fh will b wearing these on our wedding day as an extra precaution.

I’ll go ahead and third/fourth and fifth Certain Dri…. that stuff is purely amazing. Although it did make my armpits itch a bit when I first applied it before bed. But the results are astounding and so worth the (short lived) itching.

@Mrs.tobe: I’d be very wary of Lady Mitchum – I used to swear by it but then noticed it was bleaching certain fabrics. It took a while to recognize what it was because it wasn’t everything but enough to be super annoying. Sure enough I googled and it’s a common problem with that brand :/

@maribonner: I don’t know of any BUT I had this issue when I was in high school and it bugged me so much that my parents took me to a laser clinic and had my underarm hair permanently removed because my doctor said a lot of the times it’s because too much oil is produced by your hair follice glands and the laser removed my hair folicles (killed them actually) so not only am I permanentley hair free but I haven’t sweat under there in 5 years…I mean i sweat but VERY LITTLE and NEVER enough to show through clothes.

I use men’s deoderant. I find it’s the only thing that really stops me from having wet pits (gross I know… but the truth) when I wear t-shirts. Some of them have a really strong cologne smell, so you have to find one that’s not so strong.  I’ve used men’s gillette and it works pretty good, but Men’s mitchum is my favorite. I like women’s mitchum too, but it’s difficult to find it in a stick (as I don’t like the roll on or gel deodorants). It doens’t have a super strong smell and works really well.

If I go off of my anxiety meds, I sweat like CRAZY (and go crazy..)

I was sweating so badly before I was on them, that I considered getting botox under my armpits. Yes, you can do that.

This stuff STOPS sweating. You get the weird crystal thing wet, and apply. It dries odorless and completely clear, so you can even put a layer of scented anti perspirent on top.

I agree with some of the other ladies. During sorority recruitment, we always put panty liners in our armpits. Try it ahead of time, so you can adjust them to not be visible and be reasonably comfortable.

Certi Dri is possibly the greatest thing ever to have been created. I seriously love it. Remember to put it on at night though! And leave your arms over your head to let it dry first before going to sleep.

It’s the bestest.

secret clinical works great on me, but when its critical to avoid sweaty armpits like in job interviews and such, i use those pads/shields that you put in your shirt or dress.  i sweat alot when i get nervous!
