Hi all
I have had this for as long as I can remember - under the arms, the worst place. I've just started using Driclor again last night but, as I expected, the skin is so sore and I'm supposed to put it on again tonight. Does anyone else have it and have any other remedies ?

Are you taking any medications?

No, nothing. Had it forever

I find TripleDry as effective as Driclor but not irritating.

Odaban spray. You can buy it online. Changed my life - no exaggeration. x

Ah ok. Some meds increase sweating that's all. I buy adhesive underarm pad things off amazon

Another vote for Odaban. It really works.

With Driclor your skin must be totally dry when you apply it. IIRC if skin is damp/wet it reacts and forms a strong acid which is highly irritant.

Hiya, I used driclor for ages but it left me so sore! I have recently switched to Botox which was expressive but it has been 4 months so far and no signs of any sweat... Have even been on a 2 week holiday to Orlando... Would definitely recommend it!

How did you manage to get Botox? My GP said its only a private treatment X

in my area it is free but the wait list is mental I have been on it about 15 years now getting no where... In the end I decided to go private and I don't regret it at all! Best money I have ever spent on myself
