deodorant to help with body odor!

I have this issue with BO if I can only use a deodorant for a short period of time(like 2 months). I have had this issue since a teenager. Well since my second son I can only use a deodorant for 2 weeks or less. I have 5 different deodorants in my bathroom. Anyone else have this problem? If so what do you use? thanks

  • I have the same problem... and the only one I have found that stays "good" to me is the "secret clinical strength" . Ive had suggested to me to try the salt thingys ( sry dont know what they are called but look like a crystal)

    Talk to your doc... odds are you are taking in something that you shouldnt be that is coming out in sweat form in order to be rid of it from your body. Cut back your caffeine, smoking and non nutritional substances... helped decrease mine a bit ...

  • i have become a fan of toms of maine, 12 hour deoderant. It's aluminum-free, all natural ingredients and really works well! i tend to get BO on the warmer days and this deoderant has really proved itself that it works. It also keeps me fairly dry. You want to stay away from anti-persperants since you were supposed to sweat a little from the arm pits.could also be a matter of your diet. are you eating lots of greasy or spicy foods?

  • Tom's of Maine. It's one of the few womens deodorants that is free from aluminum.
