    As a young female adult, it's always been embarrassing to have such excessive underarm sweat. I work as a veterinary technician, and I had to go buy black scrubs to avoid sweat visibility. I also wanted to appear professional WITHOUT so much underarm sweat. Today is day one of using this product and I applied Drysol improperly. The pharmacist didn't stress the importance of dabbing it ... Show Full Comment

    I first used this product over 20 years ago. I would sweat in my armpits so bad sweat would occasionally run down my sides to my waist. My doctor referred me to a dermatologist to discuss surgery to remove sweat glands. After a long discussion and a consult with a surgeon, Drysol was prescribed. Yes it can burn, sting, itch, but the results are amazing. With the initial trestment, it took a c ... Show Full Comment

Everything from sprays, gels and the so called clinical strength deodorants and nothing came close to helping just ruined all of my shirts to the point to where all I can wear now are tank tops, even in the winter. I finally got an appt with a dermatologist and she suggested Drysol ... Show Full Comment

    I've experienced really sweaty palms since I was a child, to the point where I could literally see droplets form at my fingertips. Gross, right? I couldn't shake anyone's hand or form close bonds with people, in the fear that they would question my wet hands; which many people did, asking why they were so ''clammy.'' If you know something makes someone insecure why ment ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    So in high school over ten years ago I started to sweat really bad under my arms. It was super embarrassing to go through high school with this issue. After trying over the counter products and home remedies I gave up. So my Dr at the time recommended Drysol. I used it for just a few weeks and it worked so good. But then after a few months I noticed my armpits darkening. So I stopped using it. Now ... Show Full Comment
