Hi Erin Jane,
I've used Drysol since I was 12 (I'm in the US). You can get only by perscription in the US.

Certain Dry is good too, you can buy online at Drugstore.com.

I thought there was a thread about sweating, but maybe not. I have this problem both armpits though. My doctor suggest Drysol (which i think has a different name in the states). You can get it over the counter and its about $25. Expensive, but I've been using the same bottle for about 4 years. You only use it a couple of nights a week, and only before bed. I didn't believe it would work when I first bought it so I over-used and got a bad rash.

Now I use it about once or twice a week and while it doesn't completely stop the sweating it helps a lot. That combined with secret platinum works the best for me.

there are things that they can do to stop your armpit from producing sweat. I saw it on tv. I think they take out your sweat glands or something. I would see a dermatologist about it. there is help out there.

Does anyone here sweat profusely?
I have tried all different kinds of anti-perspirants, and I still sweat profusely out of my RIGHT ARMPIT ONLY! I can't wear solid colour shirts, unless it is a hoodie, or I have a wet spot in 5 minutes!
Does anyone else have this embarassing problem?
I've heard Botox would make this stop... but I was hoping someone would have a different strategy for me.
Thanks!

Hey, I know I'm a little late jumping in here but I wanted to advise pepper to cool it on the toothbrush! I know, I know, brushing teeth is fabulous and we all love that minty clean feeling, but gum surgery is NOT fun. I had to get two gingival grafts because my gums had worn away too much to hold my teeth in place the way they should. You can get to that state a couple ways: genetics, the way your teeth are arranged, and/or brushing too often/too vigorously. Be careful, or you might find yourself paying someone $2000 to cut skin off the roof of your mouth and sew it to your gums. (Of course, you might be entirely fine if you're not predisposed to having that problem already. But I wanted to put my little scare story out there because I had never even considered that sort of thing as a possibility.)

nah, i have a gentle bristle brush and with an electric toothbrush you just hold the bristles on your teeth, you don't press at all. i bought it 'cause my dentist recommended it to help with my sensitive gums in the first place and they do seem to bleed less and be a bit healthier in colour. maybe i will ask him to take a look though. thx.

I think you also have to consider how hard you're brushing- even if you're not brushing long enough, if you're brushing too hard, you could be wearing away your gumline and that's not good. Maybe ask your dentist if there's signs of gum wear.

You can actually brush too much, but I don't know how much is too much. I guess it depends on your teeth. I bruch my teeth 5+ times a day too.

The chicken skin under the eyes thing is called milia, and they're similar to tiny whiteheads. Moisturizer, especially rich ones, only makes it worse I've found. You can have a dermatologist remove them, apparently.

Ugh, in the past six weeks I've had the flu, strep throat, and now some kind of crazy stomach bug that has wiped me out today.

Does anyone know of something good to take for stomach cramps/nasusea/headache/exhaustion? I just feel so dead. I managed to get down some soup and ice cream but the only comfortable position is curled up in the fetal position.

Unfortunatly I have to work 8 hours tomorrow so this better blow over with a good nights sleep.
