Excessive sweating in DD (12)

DD is 12 and no anti-perspirant I have tried so far seems to work. The deodorant properties of the anti-perspirant works as she doesn't smell of stale sweat, but her underarms are always wet. I started her off on anti-perspirant for sensitive skin and have had to buy stronger ones.

Can anyone recommend a good brand that actually works?

Try Sure Maximum Protection. It's one of the 48hr types but works really well at keeping you dry. It's not cheap but worth it. Hope you can get something that works for her.

the sure or dove cream sticks that come in a box. they are about five pounds but they work really well

Great. Thank you. I will look out for them. Are the sticks more effective than roll-ons or sprays?

Mitchum every time.

Another vote for Mitchum

What about Driclor? You put it on at night and wash off in the morning. I think it's very effective

personally I findthe stick (really its a cream) much more effective thann the spray. I have very sensitive skin and don't react at all to the sure and dove but find mitchum, whilst effective, to be very drying

I bought the Sure Sensitive today so I will see how she gets on. Thanks for the suggestions.
