    Try the "Sure" deoderants

    I had this problem when I was 15ish, was so bad I used to sit in lessons with sweat running down my arms, very unpleasant and emarassing. Ended up using Driclor (about £6 from Boots and you put it on at night) and then just Lynx in the day to smell nice. Still use it now 15 years later and still works.

    I found it stung sometimes when I first used it, especially if I had a shower just before bed but it is really effective

    right guard 3d protection stuff is really good, much better than lynx.

    +1 best one I have ever used and it lasts the whole day too

    part of the issue is to separate deodorants from antiperspirants , the latter is what you need
    I find the roll ons are more effective than the spray on ones.

    its dear - but try 'Pit Rock' from Holland and Barratt - about £5 - but lasts ages - and works for my OH

    right guard is excellent

    sure & adidas are the worst I have used

    If it's really bad and not responding to anything talk to your GP - there are treatments they can offer.

    Wife will punch me for telling you this, she used to get botox injections under her arms, extremely painful apparently but cleared it right up. Was during her teenage years, she's fine now

    If you have tried all the usual market leaders, then this stuff really is the answer - apart from the botox injections Lumoruk has suggested (which would be expensive).

    It does sting, I used it for before my wedding so I didn't get sweaty on my big day - vain but true! :oops:

    Haha EPIC

    Judging by the sole review on the Boots site, that seems like a good substitute to Right Guard as that leaves marks on clothing which are very hard to remove. Thanks for suggesting that, I'll have to buy it or resort to undershirts. :P

    they've used it before on embarassing bodies for sweaty feet and hands also as it tightens up the sweat gland/pores etc, dont think it lasts forever though only a few months?

    had this problem years ago and as they say above driclor this is what my doctor give me on prescription, it is cheaper to buy over the counter thought and will sting a wee bit as they also say but its well worth it save your money and buy this instead of wasting on other products that wont work.
    After a few weeks of using driclor i started using just a normal anti persparent most days and go sown to using the driclor just 2 to 3 times a week and that was sufficent.
    All the best

    or boots (costs more)

    then go back to a normal roll on antipirspirant
    that should do it, if not then need to talk to the doc, but have to try first

    :lol:

    Bit late but right guard is definately the best deodorant to use. I'm allergic to it, as it makes me sneeze if I don't run away from where I sprayed it but it's worth it as it keeps me sweat free the whole day :thumbsup:

    As everyone else has said, Driclor will do it. It does sting the first time (mine was rather painful actually) but after that it's fine. Haven't used it in ages though, may crack it out again for a touch up

    I havnt read the thread but wanted to share my experience. The only thing I have found that works for me is a combination of gillette gell and gillette body spray applied on top. Does the job. I usually stock up when its buy one get one free! He may have to try a few differnt ones as I would imagine everyones bodies are different. Hope that helps.

    Thanks everyone again.Just to let you know he is going to try the Driclor.Thanks jubby me for the chemist direct link I have ordered off there.You get 3 times as much than boots and even with delivery still works out cheaper per mil.Will let you all know how he get on.

    the mitcham roll on is very good- but your son should definately shave / wax his pitts though (if he can) improves personal hygiene etc

    Driclor or Anhydrol available from a pharmacy are the best thing you can get. Also good sor sweaty feet if abyone wants them.

    I have used the driclor and anhydrol forte and both are very very good, simple put on at night and wash off in the morning.

    shave his armpits?

    Banned

    just tell him to calm down?

    Whatever yoo do don't tell him to shave his armpits then use Driclor unless you want to see a big boy cry, OUCH!

    The problem with roll on or spray on antiperspirants if you have really excessive sweating is that it doesn't help and you end up with horrible gunky armpits and ruined clothes. It's weird but when I had the same problem I never had problems with BO it was like a constant waterfall from my pits, yuck, but used to have to be so embarassed with wet patches on tshirts which I am sure only makes the problem worse. Hope the Driclor helps, it really did make me a much more confidnet teenager.
