View Full Version : Oh the frustration!

Why in the WORLD do I only sweat on days that I have applied deoderant? Any day that I don't, no sweat. No sweat means no moisture, means no bacterial growth. And I haven't detected any nasty odors on the days that I haven't applied deoderant, nor have I had anyone inform of any.

You must be from a place with a lot of humidity? This tends to happen less in dryer places.

I lived in South Dakota (east side) till August. Now I live in St. George, Utah.

Switch to an anti-perspirant.

Maybe something in the deoderant agitates your sebaceous glands? You could try switching to a different brand or even to an anti-perspirant. Also, if you don't already shave your armpits, doing so generally assists in avoiding unwanted odours and ickiness.

Anti-persperant and/or ask a doctor, I guess.
Related, anyone else find this new "facial anti-perspirant" product really weird? :smallconfused:

Perhaps it's the alchohol? I can't use most of the deodorants due to the alchohol in them, and the day I use them, I small terrible.

So perhaps switching to a non-alchohol deodorant would help?

I'm on the way to a huge failure if Anti-persperant means non-alchoholic.

No, anti-perspirants often have alcohol in them. Odd that the alcohol makes you smell bad... It's one of the main ingredients that stop bacteria :smallconfused: Guess you want the one with aluminium or whatever in it, instead.

Aren't the aluminum salts in deoderant carcinogens?

I've heard that before, but I'm sceptical. At least that they're any more so than, say, anything else. But there are other alternatives, too.
