This may be the wrong board to post this on - if so maybe someone can tell me where to post this question. My daughter is 14 years old and we have not been able to find any anti-perspirant/deodarant that will keep her dry. The deodorant part seems to work but she will sweat so bad that you can see wet spots on all her clothes - and of course this is very embarrasing for a girl. Does anybody have any ideas? We have tried all kinds - plus we have even tried different forms including spray, stick, gel, etc. Please help!

It might be a hormonal thing... Try taking your daughter to her dr for suggestions.. Puberty and the teen years are such hell..

I would agree that it may be some sort of hormone thing. Your Doctor might have a solution. My DH is about the worst sweater of anyone I have ever known. We have tried about every deodorant/antiperspirant there is. Nothing really seems to control the wet spots. There are certain colors of clothing that helps disquise the spots better. He has some limited success with arrid xx dry cream but it is hard to find. When he runs out of it and we are waiting for the drug store to get more he will use the arrid xx dry spray.

I sure hope you find something that will work very soon.
