Deodorant recommendations?

Since I've had my child, I sweat so easily and deodorant does not work as well as it used to and my underarms are sore from so much washing. I've tried MOM, it helps but takes a while to dry and starts smelling weird after a while. Degree and Arrid used to work, now not so much. Michum loses effect after one drop of sweat. Toms works stings after a wash and I still have to reapply after a few hours. I'm very frustrated and embarrassed by this issue.

Certain Dry OR Rx antiperspirant you get from your doc. 

I've had this problem for YEARS.

I have to use clinical strength secret. It's the only thing that works. Some days it works better than others though. I think I have some kind of hormonal imbalance or something.

I use a product called Sweat Block. It is amazing. It is a towelette that you wipe under your arms at night once a week.

I used to sweat profusely. Like I would just be sitting at my desk and it would drip down my sides. After only wearing a shirt for 30 minutes I would have noticeable wetness.

Since using this product I have very little moisture (and I can go 3 weeks without reapplying). It has saved me.

One word of warning, make sure you use anti bacterial soap and a good deoderant (not antiperspirant). Without the "wet" the odor can build up and really stink. I usually carry baby wipes and deoderant with me to give myself a refresh during my lunch hour to make sure I don't get bo.

I buy it from Amazon. I've never seen it in a store.

I've heard women say not to use certain deodorants or such products because it's bad for your health? Not sure what the research says.

Yes, I'm partly crunchy lol so I try to stay away from certain things and would prefer a healthy deodorant so I'm still looking for one but I'm also a little desperate to solve this problem.

Quoting Derari:
