Ok so I'm 13 and ever since gr6 I sweat a lot. To the point where I'm sweating threw sweaters even when I'm not hot? I cannot wear t-shirts or anything that I could possibly sweat in. It's really hard considering I love to shop. I don't ever see wet armpits at my age. Is it only me? Sorry. Kind of gross but any tips? Advice? Anything would be great:)
Try changing deodorants! I used to have the same problem! I rotate deodorants every 3 or 4 months! You might even want to try a clinical strength!
Baby powder .
that happens to me and idk what to do abt it either
Degree is amazing i switched to it (changed my life lol) and i know there are some clinical strength deodorants out there (Secret), topical wipes or talk to your doctor if you havent already.
I had the same problem I kinda grew out of it thou and quit obbsessing about.it I would just take a shower at night put some on at night then the next day no armpit sweat :)
Also try switching to guys deodorant its way stronger! :)
I used to have this when I was young and it got better the older I got.
But my cousin had to have her sweat glass removed because she had this issue. Talk to your mom and maybe ask to see a dr.
I'd see a doctor!! I've heard Botox injections can help. But that would be up to your parents???
my sister had the same problem and wasn't able to buy a lot of the clothes she liked, but she started using this product called Drysol (you can buy it at Walmart) and it worked like a charm for her! It is definitely recommended!
okay, sounds weird but trust me. use man deodorant! ive been using degree for men (gel) since middle school for sports, but it is now my everyday deodorant! i thought i had a problem but this worked wonders for me!
I had a similar problem but I grew out of it by freshman year. Just use a stronger deoderant.
iuse doves clinical protection and it totally works. i have that same issue.
No it's puberty I had the same problem at that age. Use alcohol on your armpits trust me it helps.also if you carry a purse keep baby wipes so you can periodically freshen up
If all else fails I had a friend who had the same problem and she got Botox injections. Sounds a bit strange but it worked wonders for her and saved her a lot of money in terms of buying pricey clinical deodorants that weren't working. I would suggest that you look into it a bit and see if it's a good fit for you
I had the same problem, kept switching to stronger & stronger deodorants, ending up with clinical super-strength stuff.
Hated it. Switched all my soaps, body wash, etc to natural & use Pit Rok crystal. It's not an anti perspirant, just deodorant but the side effect has been that instead of fighting against anti-perspirants, my body have calmed waaaay down & now I sweat very little. I can even wear light grey tops again! :-D
I definitely don't agree with clinical strength deodorant for a teenager, or anybody for that matter. Our body sweats for a reason and if there's one thing I've learned it's that stopping things our body is meant to do is never a good thing. Clinical strength deodorant burns and can be very unpleasant.
Yup, that's what I found Amy - it just became a vicious circle: sweat, stronger anti-perspirants, sweat more, etc.
hormones. I had the same problem when I hit puberty. Baby wipes or alchohol wipes to freshen up & try mens deodorant or clinical strength
Trust me, MANY girls your age are going through this problem. If not, they're gonna have the same problem when they hit 14-16. Like everyone has said, using a clinical strength deodorant can help. Also, try using different ones every few months. While more deoderants use the same ingredient, they can be different formulas. You don't want your skin to get used to 1 specific formula.
Also, just for comfort, carry around a small bag of baby wipes, refreshing wipes, etc just so you can feel more comfortable when you feel like the sweat is excessive. They have MANY travel sized deodorants to just throw in your purse too!
I agree with what some of the other have said. You could go see a doctor about it. In the meantime change up your deodorant every time you need a new one. You get used to them and so they become less effective. I also find that roll-on deodorants work better than spray on. For years I used the sprays because I didn't like the wet feeling of the roll-on and I also thought they didn't work as well. Then once I ran out of the spray and all I had was the roll-on so I used it and to my surprise it was 10x better. And, like it was mentioned before, there are some crystal deodorants available that are supposed to be good. There are sprays, roll-ons and even one which is a bottle filled with crystals that you add water to. And it's refillable. The brand is Bionsen. They are also aluminium and paraben free.
Mitchum advanced control, it's very good, works a treat
