I found after a couple of days of using driclor, the burning was unbareable. I was hoping it would calm down so I went to bed, but bloody hell, it was awful and I had to run to the bathroom to rinse it off. Probably not what you wanted to hear, sorry!
Perspirex is loads better, although you do have to apply it a bit more often.
Always make sure your underarms are dry before you put it on as well, if there's any moisture it seems to make it sting.
Oh dear bumgrapes (writing your name made me )I guess unfortunately the sweat has to come out somewhere! I suffered with sweat patches so badly as a young teen because of my hormones being all over the place that I asked the doctor. He said botox (!) is effective but only lasts a few months and has a tendency to make people sweat lots in more unfavourable places - hands feet and groins were mentioned I believe. Err, think I'll live with the stingy roll ons thanks!
I used this years ago as used to have very sweaty pits, always had wet marks under arms, was awful. Anyway, it stings like feck, I used to put it on after a night out when i had drank a quantity of alcohol, so would be sleeping heavily Also tuck your pajama top right in under your pits so each side doesn't touch, always found that worked. Worth it though.
Well my 'pits are still sore and red in places so I'm certainly not putting any more on for a while. I tentatively put some aloe vera gel on this evening -it stung like hell again but once it dried I think it calmed it a bit.
I've spent the day walking with my arms slightly out to the side in a muscle man/ hard bastard sort of way IYKWIM.
I love Driclor BUT you have to be very careful when you put it on, you can't just swipe away like you would with a normal deodorant. I find that if you put it literally just where your hair would be, it's fine, but if you go over that area that's when it itches like crazy. (I then have to just wash off)
What ever you do, don't apply the same day as hair removal!!!
Try it again when your pits have calmed in a few days, be very sparing and look at where you're putting it.
It's honestly brilliant stuff, the only thing that works for me, I don't even have to use it every night now and it last for bloody ages too.
-USE WITH CAUTION - It worked after one application. It did not sting at all, but after the second and third nights, I can see it has irritated and broken my skin a little. I should have applied it every other night. So i will wait for a few days now. I suppose it must not be applied to shaved armpits, i can see that that would sting. Great product, but i cannot help to think that whether it is a healthy way to stop sweating like these methods considering the huge amount of liquid was coming out of my body? What do you think?
Hey hii I actually had a good impression on driclor when i purchased I started using it and thank god my sweat stopped then i even started to reduce it As it used to not sweat much But then i had a shave I understand when its recent shaven it burns alot But my condition is starting to be worse Is it because i shaved???
