Is it age related (42)?
I have never been bothered with it before, but now I am having to shower twice a day, and also give my armpits a wash mid day. Right now they feel very sticky and smelly, and I showered at 7am, and applied a spray anti perspirant. It is getting noticeable, DH and the DSes have both mentioned it and I am wondering if anyone else is.
is there any products i can try - so far have tried - mum, sure, right guard and soft and gentle - roll ons and sprays

I find Dove Maximum Protection and also Sure Maximum Protection the best. It's one of those cream sticks that you twist up and roll on.

It's worked really well for me. Better than mitchum ever did.

There are others I tried, can't remember name but they were good but made the skin under my arms sore.

I think the sure and dove ones are £5.25 and you can get in boots or supermarket. They are in a box.

Hope this helps. I was surprised how good they were and tend to alternate them.

I used to use roll ons. But, found that these made me sweat more. I use Sure deodorant spray now. Works wonders.

Btw, I'm 37. I shower at least twice a day now, but that's more to do with living in Oz and it being hot here.

Perspirex is very good at stopping you sweating. You can get it in Boots.

I would probably go to the GP even if you get the sweating under control. There might be something causing it that they can help you deal with.

I also found that my bra's would get smelly, and sweaty, so I threw them out and got new ones, and used the spray deodorant instead.
