I have what I believe is a common problem in menopause, but it is very embarrassing to me. I have heard that the changing hormones in a woman's body produce much stronger smelling perspiration, and I have experienced this for a while now. I have just been told by the third person that I need to apply more deoderant. I just want to die when I am told this, because it is so embarrassing and I am trying so hard to remedy this problem.
I bathe daily, sometimes twice a day, and apply deoderant five and six times a day. I am always checking myself, and it has become almost an obsession with me. I make sure my clothes are just out of the wash. I have tried several brands of deoderant and have had some luck with the "crystal" deoderant. I lather on several perfumes and body lotions. But I am apparently still having an occasional problem. I have become so hypervigilant that I am afraid I cannot even detect what I am smelling.
Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions as to deoderants or anything that will help me make it through a full day? I cannot always stop and re-shower or wash.
