11 year old ds showers every evening and
uses Keep it Kind deodorant spray every morning. He always comes home from school smelling.
He showered this morning (sanex) clean clothes and then tonight smelling again! So had another shower. Is this normal? Aibu to be concerned? He takes melatonin for sleep

There have been loads of studies on the aluminium that have failed to find any problems.
DS1 is 11 and is exactly the same, if it's any consolation. And worse, he refuses to accept he needs to shower daily and use antiperspirant, so I seem to spend half my life nagging him to wash himself! I'm amazed he doesn't have a massive complex by now, I remember being mortified when my mum just once said I was a bit whiffy after sports day and needed a shower. Not DS1!
I get him to use standard mens antiperspirant, tried all the 'chemical free' and crystal stuff and it was useless. I also wash his shirts and tshirts with Dettol laundry cleanser which has really helped get the stink off his clothes and bedding (he sweats a lot at night seemingly).

Scrabble if you iron his shirts have a smell of the armpit area as soon as you've run the iron over the area. You might be shocked at how much 'smell' is trapped. White vinegar or Dettol laundry additive plus a hot wash might be needed alongside the Ariel Bio.
