I've been suffering from excessive underarm sweat for about 6 years now. When I say suffering I mean never wearing a t-shirt out in public. I have tried every single product you can buy over the counter including Certain-Dri (if it worked for you, great, but it doesn't work for me so don't suggest it or anything like it), powders, maximum strength stuff that "guarantees wetness protection". Nothing at all has worked and I'm absolutely sick of wearing sweatshirts my whole life. My problem obviously isn't caused by puberty or it would have passed by now. Anyone I trust enough to talk about it with doesn't understand what I'm going through. I would get the surgery, but I won't be able to afford it for at least a year and I'm so fed up with it right now. It's hardly warm and I'm dripping with sweat under my arms. The sweat doesn't ever cause odor, but that's the only upside. I'm sickened by these people who are selling books for $50+ for natural cures that probably won't even work for me. Any suggestions that do not include going to the drug store and buying Certain-Dri are greatly appreciated.
