  • Me! Me! I always wore jackets to hide the sweat problem. I could be sitting in my house freezing, and still have wet marks under my arms. Then I found Sweat Block. OMG!!!  I'm dry as a bone for a week.  I can't get over how well this stuff works.

    Skin bleach for the dark skin.  It takes time, but it works.  You may want to avoid stuff with hydroquonine(sp?) as it's been linked to cancer.  I don't because it works the best and the rates are fairly low, but I know some people don't lie to take the chance.

  • I just saw a commercial for Secret clinical strength, you might want to give it a try. As far as lightening your undearms, I would try a bleaching cream.

  • I use degree, and my underarms were really dark until i started scrubbing them with st ives apricot scrub. my dermatologist told me they were dark because of dead skin build up. She also injected Botox into my pits to stop the excessive sweating. Yes it worked. No more pit stains! I pull my clothes out of the dryer and they don't have that bo with deodorant smell anymore. I don't get the Botox anymore because I'm making a family, but when I'm done with this one and done lactating then I'll definitely start up again. it was covered by insurance.
