If you can find this stuff called Maxim it actually stopped my hyperhidrosis after using just one bottle - all through high school I'd get pit stains just sitting in class. After I graduated I had had enough of that shit so I got some of that Maxim stuff and 10 years later I haven't had a problem with it again.

Edit: Here's a link if any of you with sweating issues want to give it a shot -

Edit^2 : If Maxim doesn't seem like it is for you check the responses to this comment, people are leaving lots of great info for you guys, don't live with hyperhidrosis if you don't have to, wasn't really expecting this many people to reply to my comments in this thread.

u/YoAkihiko · 125 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

My hyperhidrosis was probably at it's worst in middle school, (I used to sweat through thick JACKETS on my armpits) I'm almost 25 now and I feel like I've tried everything under the sun. Personally the only thing that worked for me was the prescription Drysol, and funny enough I still have the same bottle since middle school. It started getting dangerously low recently so I sought an OTC alternative. After trying a bunch of failures I eventually found Driclor which seems to works just as well.

I just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone was wondering because Jackie said she had never tried them and couldn't vouch for them.

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/ecafsub · 27 pointsr/Austin

I’m guessing you’re using this to avoid aluminum (and other nasty evil chemicals). I don’t know why, because we’re likely exposed to more naturally-occurring aluminum in the environment every day than you’d rub on your pits. And no, not from manufacturing. Aluminum makes up about 8% of the Earth’s crust and is the most abundant metal in the crust. It’s the 3rd most abundant element following oxygen and silicone.

That said, the ingredient for this thing is potassium alum, aka potassium aluminum sulfate
(which is a chemical compound despite their claims that it’s “completely free of chemicals.” Because literally everything is a chemical.) so: aluminum. Screenshot of their Amazon page.

Btw, that “chemical-free” hunk of potassium aluminum sulfate you’ve been using is also used as an organic fertilizer. I figure you probably buy only organic, so there you go.

So while you’ve pointlessly tried to avoid rubbing it on, you’ve likely been eating it.

In other words: you and everyone else who bought into the fear-mongering got played. As usual. For something that almost certainly does not work. Which they actually admit on the above product page.

Edit: note that I said “I’m guessing,” because there may be other reasons people have for rubbing a rock on their pits. But the vast majority of users are in fact scared of the eeeevul aluminumz chemikillz. Sadly, they just believe whatever garbage scam these companies push and throw money at them.

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.

u/sunset7766 · 22 pointsr/AskWomen

I got the travel size of this. You wet it and also wet your clean armpits (can't be put on without cleaning your pits wth soap first) and rub it all around each pit for 30 seconds. It neutralizes the zone, making all the smelly bacteria not smelly anymore. People say you still sweat with it, I say I sweat even less than what I was with regular deodorant, and now I smell like literally nothing in there. Also, the rock lasts forever. That is, unless you drop it in your sink and it breaks, which is why I went with a travel size. I know someone who has the kind where it's a whole rock in a dish like this and she's on year 5 and the darn thing is not done yet.

Also, it was explained to me that one of the reasons aluminum in regular deodorant is bad for you is because since it's a large metal particle, it literally clogs your sweat glands. So in doing that, your telling your body it's basically not doing a good job of sweating (because you're blocking the sweat) so your body is like "omg we need to work harder!" so it produces more and more sweat. After a few years of that, your body is like on hyperdrive of making you sweat, rendering your deodorant useless. So when I switched to the crystal and quit blocking the sweat glands from doing its natural thing, my body was like "hell yeah we're doing a kickass job we don't need to work as hard to push this crap out anymore" and now I don't even sweat almost at all anymore.

u/matttopotamus · 18 pointsr/malefashionadvice

This. I started using a crystal deodorant and while I sweat, I don’t smell and do not get stains. This is what I use.


u/MaltedBarleyMaven · 17 pointsr/malegrooming

Wash and condition beard, just be sure they're for made for beards. Regular hair shampoo will wreak havoc on your face. Also use a beard oil and brush.

Wash face twice a day. I exfoliate my forehead and nose once a week; any areas I shave I exfoliate once every two weeks in the shower, prior to shaving or I don't shave that day to prevent irritation.

If you don't have a grooming routine, get one going and make it a habit; being clean is half the battle.

If you use perfume, try to find soap/shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and deodorant that compliment the perfume; or simply use unscented products.

Wash feet and in-between toes every day; soak feet and use a foot scrub once every 1-2 weeks as needed (particularly in summer); put foot powder in shoes every night to eliminate odor and wetness.

Scrape and brush tongue after brushing and flossing.

I would recommend: Fresh Balls, Bulldog facewash, exfoliator, and moisturizer, Johnson's foot soap, O'Keefe's foot scrub Gold Bond foot powder and a tongue scraper.

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/stoavio · 14 pointsr/AskMen

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/vazura · 14 pointsr/cars

Try some certain dri anti perspirant doug, I wear it for job interviews.

u/Ambiguous_Cat_Hat · 13 pointsr/Damnthatsinteresting

I've got the EXACT same problem, and its gotten worse as I've gotten older. If I've got something coming up that I really want to make sure I'm not going to sweat at all during I use a combination of these and this stuff. I also get self conscious about it, but these two products have made a HUGE difference for me. That top customer review for the towelettes says everything I can about their effectiveness for my fellow sweaty faced brethren.

u/tristanryan · 13 pointsr/MLBTheShow

Carpe Antiperspirant Hand Lotion, A dermatologist-recommended, non-irritating, smooth lotion that helps stop hand sweat, great for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweat

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.

Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant| Prescription Strength Clinical | Most Effective Anti-Perspirant Without a Prescription | Up to 72 Hour Protection | Roll-On | 1.2 oz.

u/6ixnogood · 12 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I posted this as a response to OP, but you might wanna check this out -- Sweat Block.

I bought it once, and it hasn't stopped working from the original package. Helped ENORMOUSLY. You still sweat a little, but no crazy pit marks or anything.

u/fozzy99999 · 11 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Anything w/o aluminum or paraben, I use Tom's but arm and hammer has a good option as well.

u/t3hd0n · 11 pointsr/ADHD

get you some antiperspirant with Aluminum Chloride as the active ingredient. i'm about to get some right now here because your puny mortal antiperspirants do nothing for whatever lovecraftian horror sweat glands are in my pits, but anyone could use it.

the reason i bring this up is because 1: you do it before bed instead of in the morning, 2: after the first few days of using it you only have to use it once or twice a week. and 3: its basicly the strongest shit you can get without botoxing your armpits (seriously, thats a thing. for the "my pit stains are the size of small pizzas on a cold day" peeps)

also, you only have to wash your hair 2-3 times a week. on non hair washing days you can get away with a washcloth and soap. on my face i use non-soap body cleanser so i don't even have to rinse my face off.

u/lurkielurker · 10 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

This stuff from Arm and Hammer is my go-to; I've been using it for about 5 years! Amazon link for example, I often find it at CVS for cheaper. I bike everywhere and am a pretty sweaty lady, and it still works well for me.

u/alligator_ears · 10 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

My dear fellow sweaty person, I feel your pain. I've tried several different primers, setting sprays, toners, astringents, creams etc. that I could still wear my normal makeup with, but to no avail. But then I found these and I've literally never been happier. Not gonna lie, it says not to use it on your face, but I have for like a year now, and my face is still fine. It didn't cause me to breakout, or have any side effects except I stopped sweating like a heroin addict. I hate the phrase "game changer" but these wipes changed my game.

u/attymarie · 10 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Theres a brand on Amazon I think they were called Carpe. I have the lotion and it works so well. You have to use the correct amount or it gets super sticky. I reccomend if you have hyperhidrosis. I will find a link to the product asap and throw in an edit.


u/jaskmackey · 9 pointsr/sex

Like this. Is NOT anti-perspirant.

*edited link because the other went to the mobile site

u/TheJollyDabber · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

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/ashwinmudigonda · 8 pointsr/LifeProTips

As skeptical as I was, I found the crystal deodorant to work just fine. It is colorless, odorless and just plain works.

u/Heathenloki · 8 pointsr/AskMen

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/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.

u/jimstr · 8 pointsr/funny

yes. try this my good sir. and experience comfort again.

u/Joshyblind · 8 pointsr/britishproblems

Odaban is your friend

u/[deleted] · 7 pointsr/AskWomen


All natural, odorless, not sticky, doesnt stain and leaves no white residue.

u/MysteriousExpert · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Thai Natural Crystal Deodorant.

It's not Thai and it's not "natural", but they do work. The crystal is alum, which is a different kind of aluminum salt than the aluminum chlorhydrate found in most antiperspirants. You apply the the deodorant, by wetting the crystal and rubbing it on your skin. It has no smell.

The benefits of it are that it does not stain clothes - no yellow stains in the armpits like regular antiperspirants. I find it to be effective at stopping odors.

From the name, it seems like a ridiculous product. I started using it a few years ago. At first, was switching from antiperspirant to a regular deodorant to stop my shirt armpits from staining yellow. But several brands of regular deodorant (arm and hammer, old spice) irritated my skin. This stuff works well and I have no irritation. I'm very happy with it.

Costs about $7/stick, but a stick will last a year, maybe more.

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/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/Kirasedai · 7 pointsr/answers

I use the rock after every shower and have used it for about 5 years. You need a bit of moisture so I towel off and the little bit of moisture from the shower is enough. It doesn’t smell and it doesn’t show at all. I then use a regular antiperspirant after it cause I sweat a lot (don’t we all). I think it helps a huge amount. I don’t get b.o. smell that is noticeable at all anymore. I’ve even put my shirts pit right up to my face at the end of the day and take a huge whiff and I don’t smell b.o. just the smell of my antiperspirant. I think what it does (I’m not 100% or anything in this) is neutralize the bacteria that causes the smell. So since it’s neutralized it doesn’t make the smell. I love it and highly recommended it. The one I use is just a stone in a basket I got on amazon
Crystal Body Deodorant, Rock, 5 Ounce

I have been using this one for a year or so and the one I had before I used for around 3 years and it barely shrunk. Unfortunately I dropped it one day and it shattered into a million pieces so I had to get a new one. If you have any other questions about it I will happily answer them to the best of my knowledge. Rock on dude. Ha!

u/erin_said · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use the crystal deodorant, and it's a little odd to get used to at first, but it works great! You have to reaaaaallllly get it all over your underarm area though, not just in the pit...I rub mine a little bit on the sides of my armpit and then a lot farther up and down (like a bit down onto my sideboob area and on my arm where it touches my side boob area). I definitely had a few days where my body was sort of getting used to not having traditional deodorant on, so I was a bit stinky, but it didn't last long. Now the only time I get stinky is if I'm doing really heavy physical activity in the heat, but that would have happened even when I wore normal deodorant. This is the kind that I buy because I hate the dispenser on the stick version, but the stick version works just the same. My favorite thing about it is that it's cheap and it lasts a super long time. The only time I've had to buy new deodorant since I've started using it wasn't because I ran out (I wasn't even close), but it was because I dropped the crystal chunk and it fell awkwardly and shattered.

u/nubbinator · 6 pointsr/AskReddit

This is what I use. It works great and lasts a long time. It isn't an antiperspirant, but it's a great deodorant. If you get smelly feet, you can also use it on them and it will kill the odor.

u/appointment_at_1_am · 6 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu
u/dianadorablee · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

You should try Odaban! It's the only thing that's ever worked for me besides prescription antiperspirants like Hypercare or Drysol from the dermatologist, but you can get this on Amazon and I think it works even better than any deodorant or prescription one. I know how you feel, nothing has ever worked for me before I found Odaban.

u/lawanddisorder · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I've suffered from hyperhidrosis my entire life. I could not tolerate drysol because it made my underarms break out in an itchy, burning rash. I have tried all of the t-shirts with absorbent pads and the stick on pads, I would still soak through them and having a cold wet pad under your arms feels gross. I've ruined dozens of shirts and suits by sweat staining them.

Three years ago I learned about Odaban Antiperspirant Spray from reddit and it has changed my life. It doesn't make me break out in a rash and it really works. I don't even spray it on every other night anymore, I can go four to five nights between applications before I start to sweat excessively. Absolute game changer. Everybody's physiology is different and YMMV but I urge you to give the product a try.

u/Captain_Albern · 6 pointsr/germany

Amazon has Driclor.

Otherwise, go to a pharmacy (Apotheke).

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/everett916 · 6 pointsr/EDC
u/EmEffBee · 6 pointsr/ottawa

Maybe you are like me and get terrible sweaty feet all winter. The worst. I actually use something like this all winter because it gets so bad. The cream has made a huge difference for me and my comfort in the winter time.

u/the_great_pazuzu · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If you're looking to actually stop sweating, i'd go for Certain Dri. This stuff works VERY well, and you would want to put it on before you sleep. Putting on too much could cause your armpits to feel like they're on fire too. It has aluminium chloride in it, so if that ain't your thing you'll want to look elsewhere.

u/mello992 · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This works better than anything else I have tried. Just to warn you, it fucking burns when you put it on. You're either gonna have to sit through it or put something on it to relieve the pain. This is one reason you don't want to shave before putting it on. Remember, it's totally worth the brief pain of applying it.

u/Jessie_James · 5 pointsr/AskMenOver30

Try Mitchum - it lasts 24hrs and I have no issues with stains.

That's the stuff I've been using for years.

EDIT: Moreso to this point - a true 24 hour antiperspirant does exactly that - prevents you from sweating. If you sweat, then your product of choice isn't working. The problem there is that it simply may be your body chemistry that is allowing the sweat to mix with bacteria and turn yellow, not the antiperspirant you are using.

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

Do this for one week atleast and report back!

u/anonymity_perfection · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

On phone, sorryforformatting.

I've been having the same problem except it turns out my super strong antiperspirant was making the problem worse! Without deodorant I smell FUNKY (even after detoxing my pits for like two weeks) but with deodorant I smell... anxious... stale... sour... I don't know how to describe it but it's not funk. Aaaaanyways tmi I use two products now. This spray once a week and this paste on the daily.

I also started wearing looser and thinner clothing and no rayon spandex or knits. The fabric changed my stink completely even before using either of those products. I still sweat minimally but it doesn't even bother me unless I wear one of my forbidden fabrics or get really nervous for an extended period of time.

Msg me if you have any questions.

Also excessive sweating is called hyperhydrosis.

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/Flippinchris · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It's not related to clothing, but I'd recommend buying some antiperspirant wipes ( I sweat a ton as well and these will do you wonders.

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.

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/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.

You could also use this stuff called SweatBlock. I don't know a ton about it, but it definitely works to reduce excessing sweating. A friend of mine uses it in the summer.

u/keljar1 · 5 pointsr/TalesFromYourServer

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.

you can get special antiperspirant for hands.

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/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/Hamalicious · 4 pointsr/wicked_edge

No, it's a block of mineral. The only alum I'd pay extra for is Thai Crystal deodorant sticks and only because it is specially shaped and seals for travel/protection.

u/AutumnDescent · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Have you tried Old Spice deodorant? They do have certain scents that are made without the antiperspirant/aluminum. I'm a woman, and I use the Wolfthorne scent. It smells like oranges and isn't uber manly.

I've also used the thai crystal . It's a crystal that you wet and rub onto your pits. I know it sounds hokey and like bullshit, but it helps me with the smell. Doesn't do anything for sweat, though.

u/invertedearth · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips

If you have never tried using the crystal-type deodorant, give it a go. BO comes from certain bacteria digesting the sebum secreted from certain parts of your body (the smelly ones: pits and crack to crotch). Deodorants typically only provide some fragrance to cover the stanky build-up, but the crystal works by killing those bacteria. It takes a few days (one week at most) for its effect to build up, but it does work.

Years ago, as a starving college student, I worked construction ~30 hours a week to pay for tuition, etc. Working in the hot, humid central Alabama summertime and scrambling to clean up for classes resulted in the desperate fetid stench that can only be described in relation to the swamps of Dagobah. Repeated showers didn't work. Antiperspirants didn't work. Industrial strength scents designed for pubescent boys didn't work. As someone who had always prided himself on his personal hygiene, I was really deeply traumatized; suddenly, for reasons beyond my control, I had become the stinky guy that everyone avoids. The only think that worked was that crystal.

Finally, as an added bonus, it is remarkably cheap since one stick will last for years if you ignore the directions and apply the dry stick to a wet armpit immediately after showering instead of wetting the stick under the faucet.

u/philoneous · 4 pointsr/Paleo

Not sure what a Paleo deodorant would be, but you could try mineral salts like this.

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/fmngblch · 4 pointsr/beautytalkph

Not OC but I use a Crystal deodorant and it works. You just have to use it on your clean and damp underarms. It really helped in lightening my armpits tbh.

u/nobbyv · 4 pointsr/AskMen

Not a deodorant, but an antiperspirant.

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/MrGreatKing · 3 pointsr/Wetshaving

My routine goes like this:

  1. Warm water to rinse off residual product
  2. Alum stick over wet face (Crystal Body Deodorant is MASSIVE and is cheaper/same price as smaller shave-marketed sticks, and it's the same ingredient)
  3. Cold rinse
  4. Towel pat dry
  5. Apply aftershave splash (I never use balms because my skin is oily - Floid "The Genuine" Amber and Figaro Ambra are my two favorites)
  6. If shaving before work, once the aftershave has dried I use a neck duster to apply a light layer of talcum around my neck
  7. Spray some cologne, but away from the area that just had steel scraping repeatedly against it because of much it stings as compared to aftershave

u/Jlocke98 · 3 pointsr/wicked_edge

alum is a nice post shave/pre-aftershave step as it closes most small nicks without the need for styptic and it has antimicrobial properties as well so it can help prevent acne and whatnot. it also makes your skin tighter resulting in your skin feeling smoother. if you want to get some alum on the cheap, this is what I use. if you don't get that, be sure to get potassium alum, not any other kind of alum like ammonium, it'll sting more.

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.

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/Greblak · 3 pointsr/floorball

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.

u/yvva · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have a bad sweaty problem. Only thing that works for me is Maxim. Apply 1 swipe at night, and it's good for 2 days. If that doesn't work, then definitely talk to your doc about a prescription antiperspirant.

Because the Maxim isn't a deodorant, I'll sometimes use one of the fruit smelling Old Spice deods (Wolfthorn is a tropical paradise) or a deod by an Ebay seller. It's called "the pits" and I have the lychee scent.

EDIT Also, relevant Portlandia spoof on natural deodorants. My boyf and I couldn't stop laughing the other night when we saw it.

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/grub5000 · 3 pointsr/seduction

> 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.

It's also available at Walmart and affordable. You can also use underarm liners. I know some fabrics do hold odor and make things stink worse.

I 2nd the Hibiclens idea. This also works well.

Another thing you can do if you sweat a lot is to look at hormone balance and Botox shots.

If it's just odor, look at the food you eat. Atkins/meat diets make you stink. There is also an odor with onions/garlic. I tend to sweat those foods out no matter how I prepare them.

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

>how the heck do I stop my shirts from yellowing?! I use Old Spice Antiperspirant sticks...

You answered your own question there. Your shirts will yellow and grey in the arm pits from the Aluminium Chloride in antiperspirant deodorant. The only way to stop this is to switch to a spray or non-antiperspirant stick.

If you just need to stop sweating so much, try a more aggressive antiperspirant so you can use less of it while using the normal deodorant to deal with BO. You might want to get a prescription for something strong, or for over the counter buy some Certain Dri to use sparingly (it is powerful).

u/payeco · 3 pointsr/AskNYC

These are the best. Expensive for undershirts but they’re magic IMO.

Also use Certain Dri. Put it on after showers before bed. I do my under arms and have my wife do my back. I used to be a sweaty mess but now I’m dry as the Sahara. I’m probably going to end up with cancer from it some day but at least I’m dry now!

u/ThisOpenFist · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

It is the deodorant. There's an ingredient in some deodorants that reacts with your sweat to cause yellowing.

I use a deodorant crystal and have no issues. Check it out!

It's basically a salt rock that you wet and rub on your pits. It works by making your skin less hospitable for bacteria, whose excrement is the cause of BO. It doesn't produce any visible layer of protection, but I've been using it for over a year with good results; no BO and no ruined shirts.

And there are other brands, if you want to shop around.

u/hanzabean · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide
here's the link to the product, maybe the reviews will help. I got mine from amazon a while ago because I'm obsessed with online shopping, but they also have it at kroger around here as well as more specialty stores (like whole foods or whatever).

I live in the midwest and used this from May-now, and definitely saw some really hot days. You only really get stinky if you don't shower daily/get really sweaty and re-wear the same shirts multiple times.

Deodorants simply work to reduce stinky pit smell; antiperspirants usually use aluminum salts to kind of plug up the sweat glands in your pits to decrease the amount of moisture that comes out. It's what our bodies have evolved to do, so I figure why mess with that? Obvs it's up to you to decide, and if you try the stone and don't like it, you can probably find some hippy to give it to :P

Anyway, hope that helps!

[edit: also one of the reasons I thought about the stone was that I kept staining the pits of my shirts with the traditional antiperspirants I was using, which sucked! I haven't had that issue at all with the stone]

I have no idea what the answer to your problem is, but I can suggest products that I use. First is Crystal deodorant - it is literally just a salt crystal rock thing, just one ingredient. You can buy a travel size at places like Whole Foods to see if it works for you. If one of the ingredients in your deodorant is causing trouble for you, maybe using a simpler product will eliminate the issue.

The other product is Certain Dri. It works a little differently than your average deodorant. It stops you from sweating and lasts a few days, even after you shower.

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.

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.

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.

i usually don't wear socks with sperry's. they should be leather, so they usually don't smell as bad. however, when it does, i use balla powder and sprinkle in a few dashes.

u/zomgimagirlonreddit · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

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. Put it on only before bed with an old tee, because it sometimes stains the shirt. But it works like a miracle.

u/chubby_chuckles · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I used to sweat like a fiend as well. Then I tried this. Maxim

It's pure magic.

You can get it at your local pharmacy for cheaper probably (without a prescription). They will probably have to order it though as I doubt they have it in stock.

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/martysthreegirls · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This has excellent reviews on amazon.

I don't know what kind you're using... I always use a men's sport one even though Im female

u/purepyroga · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

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.

This is where anti monkey butt powder comes in. This is a staple in my camping bag, and I put a small travel bottle in my son's baseball gear bag.

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.

Mitchum gel deodorant is extremely effective and not too expensive. Link to where you can buy a 4 pack for under 20 bucks. Cheap body wash mixed with a good luffa will get you squeaky clean, store brand dental floss, tooth brushes, and toothpaste will do the job if you maintain a good oral hygiene regiment, and regular hand/face soap hasn't killed me yet!

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/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/zfnldr · 2 pointsr/self

I don't know if it is available at your country, but if then try Odaban (

Sometimes I have the same problem as you, especially under my arms or on my feet. This is the only thing that helped for me.

If you use it, make sure to take it just every second day and just before going to sleep because it may itch a little.

u/_PM_ME_YOUR_BOOKCASE · 2 pointsr/IAmA

I bought this, and it lasted a while! I must say, that while I sweat a LOT, I don't have axilliary hyperhydrosis so your mileage may vary, but it's worth a shot, and the stuff isn't bank breaking!

It can be quite uncomfortable on application too (like a pinching sensation for me), but for me it was worth it. If it's too painful though, it may be a reaction to the aluminium compound they use in it.

u/missyanntx · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

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.

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.

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/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.

u/buttersauce · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm gonna second these and add driclor to the list. It's only like 20 bucks on Amazon. My life was so embarrassing before these. I didn't want to touch anyone or hug anyone in high school cause they'd feel my wet armpits. It's crazy how dry these keep me. Just use them every day before your normal deodorant/antiperspirant. I still get a sweaty ass but im too nervous to stick the harsh chemicals down there.

One bottle should last half a year and I guarentee your life will change drastically.

u/asaltystranger · 2 pointsr/AirForce

I had the same problem, I think pre workout and white monsters were the main factor that caused my excessive sweating. My whole shirt would be soaked, I would dread wearing blues, and it seemed like no OTC antiperspirant worked. I read some blogs and watch some youtube and found a clinical strength roll-on version called Driclor on Amazon and within a few days it stopped. I haven't had to use it for over a year, it's like your body just needs a reset. If that doesn't work, you may want to see the clinic and check your thyroid levels, etc.

u/CatastropheCat_97 · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I know there are over the counter deodorants specifically for chronic sweating that might help. Just be careful because they are POWERFUL and you do need to sweat some to keep your body healthy, I'm fairly sure.

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/reglig · 2 pointsr/starterpacks

u/TkTheTank2 · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I have a bad underarm sweating problem that happens pretty much no matter what I’m doing. I found this product a few years back called Sweat Block on amazon and it has been a game changer. It’s like a moist towelette that you apply before bed and it last a good week or two before you have to reapply. I would give it a try as when I use it I don’t sweat at all anymore.

Here is the link for it.

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

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/Cockslap_Carousel · 2 pointsr/bigboobproblems

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/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/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/luckers · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I tried every antiperspirant on the market and nothing works. I found this last year and it works crazy good!

u/Georgious · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I have the same problem - my pits go NUTS at the mere hint of warmth. Even in the winter, it's a miserable situation. I've tried Certain Dri and a few other products, to no avail. Any colored shirts - even with undershirts and clinical antiperspirant in full effect - got blasted. Pure misery.

...Until I tried Sweatblock Wipes 3 weeks ago.

I shit you not, I have never been more impressed with a bodycare product in my life. I noticed results the next morning. You only apply once a week (I even skipped a week to see how long it would last, and two weeks worked in the NY Spring so far.) There's a slight menthol-y smell as you dab (not wipe/rub down as apparently this can burn) around the underarm hairline before you go to bed. It essentially re-routes your underarm sweat to the next possible outlet. Mine happens to be my head/neck area, which kind of sucks, but doesn't ruin clothing and is much easier to manage than armpit swamp.

TRY it. Literally changed my life. I'm curious to see how well it holds up in the steaming NYC summer, but for now it's unreal.

u/meganashleyxox · 2 pointsr/AskDocs

I’ve suffered with Hyperhidrosis for years and my main problem area is my face. My arm pits hardly sweat, but my face will pour with sweat even just standing around doing nothing. I’ve found two things that have worked. The first thing I tried was SweatBlock Antiperspirant from Amazon. It’s a wipe and it helped control my facial sweating for up to a week at a time! I didn’t want to risk it irritating my face before my wedding (although it never caused irritation before) so I tried the medication Glycopyrrolate and it worked the majority of the time, but I did still experience some sweating, just nothing to the degree I was before! I would give either of those a shot. I know for me, I start experiencing anxiety when I notice my face dripping and that only leads to me sweating more, so I practice taking deep breaths while sitting to calm my anxiety to prevent even more sweating. Hyperhidrosis is embarrassing (do people really need to point out I’m sweating inside in the AC?) but know you’re not alone!

You should be able to create alternate bindings to use pressure in place of capacitive grip for many functions that you can switch too after the hour+ of play, but it may not help for games that look at hand pose/finger gesture etc.

You could also try antiperspirant for hands:

u/hiddenevidence · 2 pointsr/FortniteCompetitive

my hands sweat violently when i hold anything. playing smash with my friends sucks cuz their joycons are always soaked when they get them back lol. fucks up my aim a lot too because my hand slips all the time. i got this off of amazon a few years ago and totally forgot i had it until last week. helps a ton but dries the fuck out your hands. you just put a pea sized dot on your hands and rub it in. feels sticky at first but dries in like 30 seconds. it lasts a full gaming session easily. it usually lasts me the whole day but gradually wears off throughout the day. some of it comes off when you wash your hands too, but not much. i recommend it if you have sweaty ass palms like me.

u/chrisbenson · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I often bring a small alum crystal, dab it with a few drops of water and rub it around my armpits and crotch (and sometimes my feet) a few times a day depending on how much I'm sweating. It coats your skin with a fine layer of double sulfate salts that are completely harmless to humans but prevent the growth of bacteria. It's what I use for deodorant at home every day and it works great if you apply it correctly. (You shouldn't use it inside your vagina- just on the outside areas of your body where bacteria like to grow.)

If I use the alum crystal to freshen up occasionally on the trail, then I'm often smelling pretty fresh when I set up camp. But sometimes when I get to camp, I'll wash with a dab of peppermint Dr. Bronner's in my pits, crotch, and feet, and then wipe away the soap with a damp pack towel. Then re-apply the alum crystal.

Sorry if this is TMI but I also bring baby wipes for my butt crack. Sometimes if I've had coffee in the morning, I'll get a little anal leakage on the trail, so baby wipes are a quick way to clean up that area.

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/machei · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I switched over to a simple salt crystal a few years back and have been happy. They don't stop you sweating if that's your main issue, but they do stop the smell, and do so without chemicals. Also, the things are dirt cheap and last forever. I think it's been over three years, and I have only gone through three or four of them. Only complaint is that they'll eventually gum up the works of any dispenser they come in, and if you drop it, you run the risk of breaking or cracking the crystal, which makes it potentially painful to use if you scratch yourself under the arms with raw salt. Owie.

u/Angry_Cardboard_Box · 1 pointr/Wetshaving

This is the one I am using. Someone can jump in, but I believe this is the same as an alum block for shaving - small cuts and whatnot. I have also tried this one from Italian Barber. It is okay, but it runs down my arm quickly.

u/ReverendDizzle · 1 pointr/AskMen

In the last year I started using one of ]those mineral salt deodorants]( I thought for the longest time that it was some sort of hippie-healthfood-store bullshit and there was no way rubbing a block of salt under your arms would do jack shit but god damn does it work.

Before I started using it I used your standard deodorant like Old Spice. In that I had three smells: right out of the shower and smelled like soap, right after putting on the old spice and I smelled like old spice, and after wearing it for awhile and exercising or what not and then I smelled like a combination of arm pits and old spice.

With the mineral salt deodorant? I never smell like anything unless I put cologne on. It's almost unsettling, really. It does such a good job killing off underarm bacteria that the difference between what my armpits smell like after a shower and what they smell like when I go to bed that night is nearly unnoticeable.

tl;dr: sometimes hippie shit works, rub salt blocks on your armpits.

I don't use antiperspirant. Not excited about the aluminum or chemicals. I've got this crazy salt rock deodorant thing (Or I use Tom's Natural Unscented Deodorant) that when I first started using them I thought, "there's no way this will work." No BO, and they aren't perfumed either which I consider another plus. And no more stained shirts. You sweat a little more for the first couple weeks, but then much like keto, your body learns to re-regulate itself and you actually sweat a lot less than you did using aluminum antiperspirant. It's amazing how our bodies know exactly what to do if we keep the junk out of them, yet we continue to muck them up with new and improved human crapola.

u/peacesweater · 1 pointr/asktrolly

eta: if relevant, we are 25-30 years old. if your tween showers everyday, as you apply it after you have cleaned your pits, then it will work well. and no scent, which i have, means no scent. no perfume. no bo. they seem to all be fragrance free, so i do not know why one of them is marked "for men."

u/yarow12 · 1 pointr/AskMen

I was very close to purchasing an unscented Crystal Body Deodorant Stick for Men, which has Ammonium Alum as an ingredient, until I read through Stephanie Greenwood's articles Exposing More Truths About Alum and the follow-up article Dangers of Aluminum. Shame, really, it seems like it would have worked wonderfully for me.

Bellow are a few relevant extracts...


>Okay, now let's look at alum. When alum (full name, Potassium or Ammonium aluminum sulfate) is in its solid crystal form, the molecules create a crystalline structure. However, when it is wetted, the molecules break out of their crystalline structure and become ions (singular atoms with a positive or negative charge). So, when you're applying a wetted crystal to your skin, you're applying aluminum ions, the smallest possible form of aluminum, to your skin.


>So now let's look at aluminum ions, which is really what you're putting on your skin when you use the crystal stones and sprays.

>Aluminum ions are toxic to plants and animals. The crystal companies love to say that aluminum is a naturally occurring mineral from the earth, but they don't tell you that naturally-occurring aluminum in soil is problematic. Plants don't grow in aluminum-rich soils. Aluminum is abundant, but it plays no part in any biological function in plants or animals Current research points to the possibility that aluminum robs cells of magnesium (source) a vital mineral, and that's why they won't grow.


>If you're trying to avoid aluminum in your life, you've probably decided to not use aluminum pots and pans. You know that putting acidic food in aluminum causes aluminum leaching in to the food. When aluminum is leached in to food, it turns from a solid metal, in to ionic form. This is the same aluminum ion you create when you wet the crystal deodorant stones. When they create alum, it's effectively the same process. They add sulfuric acid to aluminum-rich bauxite ore. The aluminum is leached in to ionic form, and then the resulting liquid is dried out and the remaining aluminum salt crystalizes in to the stone that you use for the deodorant. When you wet the deodorant stone, you're effectively putting aluminum in the most bioavailable form possible on your body's largest organ: your skin.


>If it is your lifestyle choice to avoid aluminum, avoiding alum in the crystal deodorant stone would logically be part of that. There is no proof that it wouldn't be absorbed in through the skin. The amounts being absorbed would be rather small, but we're talking about daily repeated use. The body has a nearly impossible time getting rid of aluminum, so if it is being absorbed, it is accumulating in the tissues of your body with hardly a chance of escaping. It is up to you to decide if you want to take that risk.

^ Exposing More Truths About Alum




I've just finished reading her article that led up to the previous two--Aluminum in Crystal Deodorant Stones--and I've decided to add some extracts from that one aswell.

>The stone manufacturers claim that alum is a mineral salt, "similar to that found naturally in the earth's crust." Radioactive uranium is also found naturally in the earth's crust--but that doesn't mean you'd want to use it as a deodorant.


>While experts have not come to a consensus that aluminum causes Alzheimer's, there is some strong evidence of a link. For instance, in 1988 a truck driver accidentally dumped 20 tons of aluminum sulfate in to a town's drinking water. Now, over 20 years later, they are finding a higher incidence of Alzheimers in the people of this town that were exposed to the aluminum in the drinking water. Many people point to the fact that aluminum is found in high concentration in brain matter affected by the disease. But while there is plenty of strong circumstantial evidence, researchers are still trying to find out if and how aluminum compounds work within the brain to create the plaques and tangles associated with Alzheimer's.


>The bottom line is, that while using a deodorant stone is probably better than using a conventional anti-perspirant, it's not aluminum-free and it still poses a possible Alzheimer's risk and contributes to background toxicy in the body.

^ Aluminum in Crystal Deodorant Stones




>If the actual moisture is an issue then cornstarch or gold bond powder might be an additional option for you.

I just don't want to stain my shirts, but I'll probably still look into them as alternatives. Thanks.




>My skin can't handle something in mainstream deodorants. Towards the end of me using traditional deodorants and antiperspirants my armpits have horrible rashes

It's probably the baking soda. I've read through plenty of reviews on Amazon of customers getting rashes from natural deodorants. I suggest looking into it yourself, though.

u/SimpleSine · 1 pointr/AskMen

Because modern deodorants are absolute crap filled with chemicals you don't need, fragrances and binding agents. Eventually these leave resides that clog pores that can lead to issues and rashes.

I use this which is what people mostly used before the advent of trying to sell you bullshit you don't need all in the guise of providing profits to investors.

This may take awhile for you to get used to this but works excellent for me - hardly any smell at all - no rashes - no bullshit shit lasts fucking forever.

Your armpits smell because modern deodorants just mask smell they don't make the environment inhospitable for growth to even take place to where it becomes an issue with smell. Once you start using this give it a week or two as your body and skin adjust.

I use salt rock for deodorant. last all day, and the stick last for a year believe it.

u/chris8499 · 1 pointr/malelifestyle

This may not be the most popular option, but I use one of those salt crystals:

Unscented, but doesn't stain shirts like antiperspirants do. Also lasts over a year.

u/shmookashmuk · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Hey! This might not work for you, but I also had a BO problem where my regular deodorant wasn't doing anything, so based on internet recs I started using this Thai crystal stick right after I got out of the shower, and it completely eliminated my problem. Apparently it creates an unfriendly chemical environment for bacteria.

It's important to completely clean your underarms in the shower before applying the stick, because although it prevents bacteria, it is not a smell masker and can't help you if you're already smelly. I have an anti-bacterial body-wash which I scrub under my arms in the shower, but maybe the sulfate-free soap suggested elsewhere in this thread would be good? I'm interested in trying it.... Anyway, after I get out of the shower I wet the stick briefly under the tap and then apply to my pits, which dry quickly. I also put my reg deodorant on top of it.

Thai crystal I've only found online, but I have seen other crystal deodorants (roll-on type) in drugstores, which I've tried and do the job too (I prefer the solid form though). this one

Edit: I feel a moral responsibility to mention the aluminum controversy. It's a whole box of worms which may or may not be an unfounded scare.... I am thinking of maybe trying this Milk of Magnesia as an alternative, but I'm not in any rush.

u/NonPlayerCharacter78 · 1 pointr/bigmenfashionadvice

I cut my own hair. Every 2 weeks when I cut my hair I put the "blending" guard on the clippers and run them over my armpits to trim back my arm pit hair. Its long enough that its not itchy but short enough to be more hygienic.

I use Thai Crystal Deodorant Stone under my arms. It has no scent and it doesn't stain. Its Potassium Aluminum Sulfate which is sometimes referred to as Alum block. There is a debate as to whether its safe because of the link between aluminum and Alzheimer's disease. Some people claim the Potassium Aluminum Sulfate molecule is too large to pass through your skin. Its up to you to research but from what I've read its no worse than any other under arm deodorant product sold in grocery stores.

I think the stuff works great. No gummy feeling under my arms and no stains on my shirts. A Thai Crystal Deodorant Stone lasts me 8 months to a year. I get from Whole Foods Market for about 8 bucks. It requires you to wet the stone with cold water and rub a wet hand over your armpit then vigorously rub around under your arm for 30 to 60 seconds but after the area has been covered I've gone up to 3 days with no pit odor. You apply it right after a shower. It won't do anything if you already stink, it prevents the smell from developing in the first place. When stones get too small for under my arms I use them on my face after I shave and on small cuts to stop the bleeding.

u/raijba · 1 pointr/IWantToLearn

OP, I know I'm late to the party but no one has brought this up yet.

When you talk about ruining your shirts from sweat, I had a similar experience. When I was in high school, I wore the same 5 undershirts under my uniform for like a year and I sweated so much that the material in the armpits became kind of tough and discolored, thus ruining the shirts. It happened regularly to all tees I wore for the next five years and I thought it was just unavoidable.

I've read that this grossness is actually caused by chemicals in the antipirspirant. Since having switched to crystal deodorant (which is not an antiperspirant), this doesn't happen to my shirts. I recommend the crystal stuff in that it keeps me odor free and keeps my shirts in good condition.

Some people in this thread have reported that quitting antiperspirants has led to a decrease in sweating. This hasn't happened for me, so your mileage may vary. I still sweat a lot on the crystal deodorant. But there are no chemicals (it's pretty much made of salt, I think) and my shirts last longer.

What I have started doing is wearing a moisture wicking shirt (like Under Armor) as an undershirt. While this decreases the severity of large sweat spots under my arms, they are still there. Just instead of looking soaked, they look a little damp, which is a big improvement.

u/cryptorchidism · 1 pointr/Frugal

You could try using one of these. It messes with the salinity of your skin so bacteria can't grow.

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.

u/JoeSchmoe2000 · 1 pointr/AskMen

I have been using Crystal for about a year now and will probably stick with it. It is a big salt rock. It isn't an antiperspirant but it is excellent at preventing odor.

u/BeneGezzWitch · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

No antiperspirants :( This is the one we all use: Crystal Body Deodorant Stick - 4.25 oz

u/Isis13rules · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

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.

u/zieen · 1 pointr/malegrooming

I switched to Dove Men Care, but found today that it also gives me a burn/rash. Crystal is the only deodorant not to do that to me so far ( I found it at CVS for around $3. It's just potassium alum, which is the same alum you might use shaving.

u/fgiveme · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

For deodorant you should keep the alum crystal one, like this:

The thing last forever and will not melt even if you put it in the trunk of your car during hot summer.

u/eluusive · 1 pointr/bicycling

Get some Crystal Deodorant. Take a shower before your ride, and put that on anywhere you expect an oder. The minerals keep you from sweating in your nether regions and kill the bacteria that produce the stank.

My wife recently had me try her hippie crystal deodorant stick. I was very skeptical because I'm a pretty stinky guy at times, but I'll be damned. It works super damn well on me.

Most days that's all I use, but some days I combine it with my regular deodorant. I still sweat obnoxiously too much, but antiperspirants irritate my skin too much.

u/contradictionchild · 1 pointr/sexover30

Wow, not even the [crystal deodorant ] (

All my sympathy!

u/thecravenone · 1 pointr/AskMen

Mineral salt deodorant (Non-affiliate Amazon link)

Basically a brick of salt that you get wet and rub under your pits. All that salt kills the bacteria that make you stink. It's unscented so it doesn't clash with your cologne.

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/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/stonedandlurking · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

My holy grail is Crystal Deodorant. It’s about $5 and lasts me over a year with daily use. It works better for me than any regular, “clinical strength,” or natural deodorants I’ve tried. And it doesn’t stain my dark clothes with white streaks, nor does it make the pits yellow on my white shirts.

u/damnlooneyhats · 1 pointr/knitting

This suggestion can't help with the current situation - but have you ever tried Crystal Mineral deodorant? it forms a mineral layer where the bacteria that cause underarm stink can live in so you sweat, but no smell

If nothing else works, try buying a bag of activated charcole and putting it in a plastic bin with your sweater and sealing it shut for a few days

u/Happy_Airplane · 1 pointr/vegan

Try the crystal deodorant. I had a hard time with sweating and getting rashes from normal deodorant. The crystal helps neutralize your sweating. I no longer have to worry about BO.

Edit: Am male, but wife uses same deodorant too and has no problem with sweat now :)

u/YetiYogurt · 1 pointr/AskWomen

A solid performer among deodorants is Tabac's Deodorant Stick. "This masculine scent possesses a blend of lavender, citrus, and warm florals." I can't wear antiperspirants so among deodorants only, I've found Tabac as well as Herban Cowboy to work well.

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.

u/maymanny · 1 pointr/Hyperhidrosis

Hi there!


First of all, I think it is important to diagnose whether you have primary or secondary HH. This may affect which treatment is usefull.


Secondly, I also suffer a lot from forehead sweating! Previously, I have succeded with aluminum chloride ( However, it dries out my skin rather much, so I only used if a few days up to special occasions (weddings etc.).


A few weeks ago I went to the doctor and was prescribed glycopyrrolate creme (3%). It's rather expensive (~100 usd for 30ml) but I only use very little at a time. I did a test run with it for the previous 4 days and it has worked very well for me. My skin does not dry out and my forehead has not been sweating at all. I have not tested it during parties wearing a suit yet (usually the worst time!) but I'm kinda looking forward to it. My forehead feels a little more greasy when touching it, but it's not visible (my wife and my mirror at least tells me).

u/cooooter · 1 pointr/AskReddit

It sounds like you've probably tried it all, but just in case, have you looked into Maxim anti-perspirant? i used to sweat pretty bad and this stuff worked wonders. I haven't looked back since.


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/adanceparty · 1 pointr/Mens_Health

i used to use something like this

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

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/eds1609 · 1 pointr/IAmA

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

u/TheLookoutGrey · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I've used maxim for years and it's the only thing that's worked. Sounds like it's similar to certaindri that you put it on before you go to bed and wash it out in the morning. After about 3 days you'll stop sweating completely. When I don't use it I'm a waterfall of pit sweat.

u/umfuckno · 1 pointr/Hyperhidrosis

Ordered a bottle of maxim.

Will report back with results. It's 15% aluminum chloride, edging out certain dri's 12%.

u/trclocke · 1 pointr/IAmA

Sorry if this has been mentioned but I can't recommend this highly enough I had armpit hyperhidrosis to the point that it would physically drip down my torso. Put this on twice a week and I don't sweat ever. It's amazing.

use as instructed. it goes on the night before. You can shower the next morning if you want.

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 (like others) found that using a deo w/ antiperspirant only made things worse.

Also, baby powder (after you are out of the bath and dry) after putting on deo.

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/thejamsandwich · 1 pointr/london

as someone who is also exceedingly sweaty I can't recommend this enough..

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/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/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.

u/tallbrahh · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

IN my experience, deoderants will never stop you sweating. They stop you smelling.

You need a product that prevents you from sweating. I have been using DriClor for 6+ years now

I have had ZERO armpit sweat in my time using it. It's a big confidence booster.

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/soulonfire · 1 pointr/IAmA

If you haven't seen this before, I'd try it -

I was at the same point, ready to look into Botox, tried the usual stuff you can find in stores. Problem went away completely almost immediately,

u/geirrseach · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

Try this stuff. Use the liquid not the stick, and use it as directed. Shower at night, dry off, and apply. It will itch like a mofo, don't scratch it. You'll be dry as a bone for the next day. If it's not strong enough, you can ask for prescription strength from your doctor.

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/hitforhelp · 1 pointr/Hyperhidrosis

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%.

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.

u/oj2004 · 1 pointr/Anxiety

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.

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.

For those heavy sweaters out there, I use Sweatblock during the summer and it helps TREMENDOUSLY. It stings at first when you use it because it closes your pores, but I would much rather have 20 minutes of sting than everyone in the office wondering why I spill water under my arms every day.

u/Renz2LK · 1 pointr/cosplay

You can try this Or you can apply heavy flow maxi-pads and stick them to the back of the forehead protector and arm pits of your shirt.

u/M3cha · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Sweatblockworks for me. See if it's strong enough.

u/CruiseBiscuits · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

Anxiety and confidence levels. Seriously. I get pretty anxious in any social situation and I sweat SO bad under the armpits at school it was ridiculous. At home in a comfortable environment I didn't sweat at all.

This works though.

Seriously, one wipe has lasted me 4 days now and I haven't sweat a drop in my armpits yet. You may be able to find it cheaper at a local store but this was convenient enough for me. Just follow the directions exactly and wait while you sleep!

I'd tried every kind of antiperspirant/deodorant out there and nothing worked for years. Then I read about Drysol but you need a prescription for that. This worked for so many other reviewers on Amazon I gave it a shot and I am so happy that it lived up to the hype. No I do not work for Sweatblock.

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.

I highly recommend Gold Bond Friction Defense

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/SociopathicScientist · 1 pointr/scamp

For chaffing this is the best goldbond by far....the powder and cream work but nowhere near as well as this.

Walgreens usually has them

u/brandmed · 1 pointr/Fitness

I'm a big guy who used to be even bigger. Even though I've lost a considerable amount of weight, this is still a problem. This stuff works wonders for me in preventing that. Just rub it on any places likely to chafe before running, biking, etc.

u/chelsealynk · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

Gold Bond Stick for sure, this shit saves my life every time! (W1)

u/russianlime · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I used to sweat excessively too, until i was introduced to this badboy. After two weeks of application 3 years ago, i only sweat under my arms either in intense heat or after a lot of exercise. I know this isn't as much a solution as a preventative measure, but it really changed things for me.

u/uniqqqq · 1 pointr/Fitness

I had the same problem. Try driclor ( it seriously works. WARNING the first time you put it on overnight it burns, a lot. But you stop sweating out of your armpits entirely.

u/littlelurker123 · 1 pointr/ftm

I've always been a sweaty buggers, mostly on the underarms. I use a strong ass anti perspirant called Driclor which you apply overnight. It can be a bit irritable to the skin if yours is very sensitive but it tends to be okay for me.

In the past I've tried Sweat block and Perspi-Guard but found Driclor was by far the most effective and least irritable.

Freah Balls sounds weird but it’s an amazing product. I work in a factory and the summers are ridiculously hot. Started using that stuff and never had that problem again

u/baconbaconbacon5 · 1 pointr/ftm

There's a product called fresh balls (no shit) which I think is basically anti-perspirant cream. Sweat = chafing, so if you keep things dry down there it'll help a lot.

u/BAonReddit · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

I use this (new version). Helps a lot. And get this too while you're at it :P

I even use this product called fresh balls fresh balls on amazon for 11.98

u/R0botP1rate · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Has anyone bought 'Fresh Balls' and have any positive/negative things to say about the lotion? I usually get fairly sweaty and uncomfortable "under there", particularly during the summer, and was looking into lotions to help with that.

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/dopenabler · 1 pointr/sex

I don't have hyperhidrosis, but my hands get clammy before dates/interviews, and after taking coffee. I'd recommend trying this out.

u/4greatscience · 1 pointr/summonerschool

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/peony_chalk · 1 pointr/ZeroWaste

I had a bottle of olive oil that I mistakenly bought a year or two ago because I had forgotten I had just bought another (large) bottle. It was nearing its expiration date and I wasn't even done with the first bottle, so I figured I'd make soap out of it. I got lye and a simple soap mold off amazon for about $25. I already had the oil (which would have been around $10-15), utensils, bowls, and a scale.


If you had to pay for all of that up front, it's probably $50-60, depending on what type of oil you used and whether you wanted to add scents to your soap. I got somewhere around 12 bars from that, so at the high end, you're paying $5/bar of soap, which is pretty high considering it isn't even fancy or professionally made. For your second batch though, you're really only paying for the oil (the bottle of lye will make a bunch of batches), so it goes down to around $1/bar depending on what type of oil you use. You can get Ivory soap off Amazon for around $0.75/bar, so small batch homemade is still more expensive than store-bought, and you need space to store the ingredients/equipment and the soap itself while it cures.


Of your list, deodorant might be the easiest/cheapest thing to make yourself. A lot of the homemade recipes are mostly baking soda and coconut oil, which should be relatively inexpensive. I'd caution you to make a small batch first though, because baking soda can be irritating; my experiment with homemade deodorant was very short-lived. Alternatively, you could try crystal deodorant, which is inexpensive and lasts forever, although it does still have some packaging waste (which like, you'd think they could do better considering their primary audience is eco-people...)


You didn't mention it, but a scrub or lotion bars might also be easier and relatively inexpensive to make yourself. If you want to really cut the costs, why not invite some friends over for a beauty-product-making party? If everyone pitched in a few bucks, that would help cover equipment and bulk ingredients (bulk ingredients that it would take you years to use up by yourself), it'd be fun, and maybe you could nudge some fresh minds towards zero-waste.

u/AufDerGalerie · 1 pointr/askgaybros

I don’t like the soapy/laundry detergent smell of white antiperspirant sticks.

I use a Crystal Deodorant Rock. It has no smell at all. You wet it and rub it on clean skin after you shower. You still sweat, but don’t smell bad. It doesn’t work if you already have even a little bit of body odor already when you use it.

u/TigerChirp · 1 pointr/unpopularopinion

I use just regular deodorant during the day and at night, I have this strong antiperspirant that I put on before bed (it’s a roller) and I barely sweat the next day.

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.

u/idontloveanyone · 1 pointr/Hyperhidrosis

i've been using this for 5 years:

everyone who sweats from their armpits should use it, it's crazy how well it works, buy a roll todaaaaay :)

u/Etna- · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

This stuff? If yes then i will test it out

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).

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/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.

I had luck with armpit odors with perscription antiperspirant. I tried deodorants (smelly armpit stuff) of all kinds but I just smelled worse. It wasn't till I used unscented perscription antiperspirant. Or something like "Mennen Speed Stick Unscented Antiperspirant".

If you are an American, she may not be used to way an uncircumcised penis naturally smells. And yes, uncut guys do have a stronger natural smell. The best way to delay that smell from coming back just a couple of hours after showering and washing under the foreskin is to put a liberal dose of coconut oil on your glans. The oil keeps the bacterial growth down between washings. If you know sexy times are going to happen, you can go to the bathroom and use an unscented wipe to freshen up your glans. Another possibility? Ball sweat. It only takes a few minutes for musk to come back after shower. If you can tolerate shaving...that helps. Also you could use something like this: Just rub it all over your coin purse and that crack between ball sack, thigh and taint while they are still damp from your shower. Keep it off your penis, though because it probably tastes horrible. But it kills body odor like a champ and it is all natural.

u/ralphredimix · -16 pointsr/WTF

Guys, don't use AP's. The aluminum oxide causes Alzheimers. I am a big dude and I sweat a lot too, so I'm not preaching without practicing here. Get yourself a thai crystal stick or use purely deodorant.
