Which deodorant is best

Even since I got the IUD I have had smelly armpits that almost ever deodorant hasnt helped. I even tried the clinical dove kind. So my question is,Does anyone use a deodorant that helps them when they sweat a lot? I really dont want to have to use a man unscented deodorant. Any suggestions will help a lot

  • MOST of the prescription strength deodorant you can get OTC you are suppose to put on at night right before bed.
    If you read the directions it tells you why...pretty much it absorbs into your pores and helps the day after.
    I have also found, if you apply the deodorant throughout the day it helps. (Just keep some with you at all times, maybe a travel size in your purse/diaper bag and apply as you need).
    I use to put on the prescription stuff at night, and throughout the day apply a normal brand.
