Pitrok W1060 Push-Up Crystal Deodorant - it's a lump of Ammonium alum which you wet & rub on. Seems quite expensive up front but DH & I have been sharing one for over a year & there's still plenty left. Found ours in Waitrose
If the cause of the problem is excessive sweating you can get minute injections of botox into the skin under your arms - it freezes the muscle working the sweat glands and stops sweating completely, works for 9-12 months. Surprisingly not painful.
Aluminium deodorants work better than most, but are often very irritating to the skin
Driclor everytime, but treat with care - don't shave for a couple of days before you put it on, make sure your pits are dry before you put it on and only apply it once, then wait until applying it again until you feel the sweating coming back - not the 'every night for X amount of days' that they recommend on the back of the packet....
Thanks. Will investigate. Pitrok type stuff not up to my level of pong.
For the sake of my anonymous pride, must point out that the comment from dd came after she was nestled very close to my pits, before I'd showered that morning... Still, I don't like to think of dh secretly holding his nose -- so driclor it is...
Driclor absolutely murders my armpits, stings like hell. I used to like Mitchum but it doesn't work anymore and also irritates a bit. I now use the Sure Maximum Protection, its about £5 but it is the best one I have ever used. Be careful though, it leaves white marks.
