Sweating in armpits
Posted on: 12/29/2002
I have a problem with sweating. I sweat alot in my armpit area and it happens even through the cold weather. It also stinks really bad. I wear anti-perspirent and deodarent but it doesn't help. I dont wear tight clothing in the armpit, I also "air" my armpits out when I write at school. I have even tryed men's deodarent and stuff but nothing works...do you have any advice??
If you have tried the things we suggest, and you still have a problem, see a different doctor and talk about your options. Specifically, ask about something called Drysol.
