Thanks mortified - I tried it in the past as my MIL uses the Sanex zero after breast cancer surgery (no alcohol or alumini) but this didn't do squat for me. It was a few years ago now when I was diagnosed with PCOS so maybe my body is a bit different now. I'll certainly give it a go.
Unfortunately I work in a prison so highly restricted in what I can wear. And can't have aerosols at work - considered a weapon!!!
Also I work with a load of skinny people who are always cold and just get annoyed when I open the windows (to which I reply, they can add extra layers, I can't take any off!)
Was mostly concerned about effects on BFg but think I'm being sully too so don't know what to do. Hence, MN post! We all stick together here!
My daughter has a problem with excess sweating and she found the Lush powder deodorant really good. It lasts quite a while and isn't too expensive (although I can't remember how much-sorry!!), I think they have it on their website.
It's a bit odd to fling powder under your arms, but once you get used to it, it's ok!!
Temperature is part of your maternity risk assessment, particularly overheating. The risk of "being a bit sweaty" is different to overheating on a sauna, obviously, but you'd be w'll within your rights to ask your manager to ask the other members of the team to wear extra layers, rather than have you cook!
I get hot too - I try to reapply deodorant at lunchtime. I also seem to get hot flushes. I spend a fair bit of time stood by random open windows.
Maybe a spare shirt/uniform so you can get changed halfway through your shift?
Driclor is the business but I'm not sure if you can use it when you're pregnant or bf. (I didn't discover it till after having my dc). Worth a google. You apply it just before you go to bed at night (but not after a shower or bath because that's agonising), and then use a normal antiperspirant in the morning. After a few applications you don't have to use it daily. It's made life so much easier - I don't have to plan clothes around my sweatiness! It's absolutely brilliant.
Agree with cravingcake (also funnily enough fancy cake now!)... Mitchum was recommended by a pharmacist friend. Was reluctant as it contains alcohol, and I previously had an underarm absess, but it is by far the best roll on I have ever used. Stays fresh and powdery smelling all day, and I have always been a warm person, even before pregnancy. Not very expensive, you can get it in supermarkets.
