I know this might be Too Much Information, but lately I sweat like crazy! It’s not even warm out yet, so I don’t know what my deal is haha. I end up with pit stains at the end of the day and it drives me nuts. Any other bees with this problem and what deoderants do you use to minimize it?

I never had that problem….up until my late 20s. I think I was 28, and one day at a party, I noticed I had bad sweat stains. Never happened to be before. Now I can never wear a white t-shirt or have my top touch that area in the summer because it would be a disaster.
I’m still looking for a solution. However I heard about two possible solutions that I am looking into:
1) I heard on Dr. Oz that there is a simple, non-invasive surgery that can be done.
2) I heard about someone using botox every 4 months or so, and it works very well.
I’m bringing it up with my doctor at my next appointment to see what we can do. I’ve tried every over the counter product out there, nothing works for me.
If you hear of something else that works, let me know! 🙂

@Mrs.H2B: For me Degree is the best deoderant in terms of controlling sweat.
I’ve also heard of something weird that works for celebrities–you fill a bottle with 1/3 vodka and 2/3 water and sprits it in your clothes (armpit) and it prevents stains from sweating. It’s worth a try.

I don’t always have that issue (ok, really warm days, or a lot of moving around, yes), but soemthing about my underrams area and my deoderant always discolors my shirts over time. It doesn’t matter what brand, it’s like my sweat is battery acid to clothes. I really hate that I ‘ruin’ shirts by wearing them, but I cannot feel comfortable without antipersperant. 🙁

I use Ban Antiperspirant because it works and also becasue it does not stain the underarm area. An experienced nurse told me this when I was a rookie.
You can get stains out of your clothes with old fashioned SUNLIGHT LAUNDRY BAR SOAP.
Wet the stain, scrub it with the bar of soap, rinse well then if you can, hang it out in the sunshine to dry.

Thanks for the great suggestions! I will definitely be trying some of them.

omg there was a time I would just sweat like crazy, it could be freezing outside, but I would sweat! it was obnoxious because my armpits would always be wet and cold. yuck.
I started using Dial soap which is an anti-bacterial soap so I could avoid odor and I use a clinical deodorant I think it’s secret or dove or something, yeah I should really look, but it has helped me and now I don’t sweat.
It could just be hormonal changes that your body is going through.
