Throughout highschool and my freshman year of college, I had issues with sweating through my shirts. This was VERY embarassing. Finally, as a sophomore in college I went to the doctors and they gave me a perscription for this (I think you can by it over the counter now). This stuff is amazing. I used this for quite some time and got wonderful results. It did dry out my armpits when I first began using it. You apply it at night and I found it difficult to wear any clothing that would rub on my arms when I used it. However, it was worth it because I seriosly did not sweat at all (at least from my under arms) after using this. Ten years laters, I can use regular deoderant and still do not have problems with excessive under arm sweating. This is worth it if you have extreme sweating problems. I'd highly recommend. If you sweat a normal amount I'd try using one of the clinical strength deoderants by Dove or Secret. The drying effects are not as extreme... but then again neither are the results.
Like you all, I also suffered from very severe sweating from my early teens onward..I mean my shirt would be SOAKED from my pits to my waist...yeah. It was absolutely horrible! I eventually heard about Drysol (I live in Canada and got it over the counter i.e. no prescription) so I applied it to clean, dry skin and washed in the morning..and OMG it worked amazingly!! It itched like crazy as mentioned but I put up with it. But remember DO NOT USE any other product on your pits (or w.e. body part) when using Drysol. I'm now 20 and don't sweat as much but I'm going to buy it again just to use every once in a while to keep the excessive sweating at bay! Seriously it changed my life!
this product has been a lifesaver for me. Traditional deodorants were never enough for me so my dermatologist suggested I try drysol. You use it at night and wash it off in the morning (make sure you don't use it on freshly shaven underarms or it will burn a lot). I use it about once or twice a week and have never had a sweating problem since. I don't know what I would have done had I not found out about this product.
This is probably the quickest I have ever reviewed a product, actually....its the quickest any product has delivered results for me!
I have horrible underarm sweating. It doesnt matter how cold it is outside, or how little physical activity im doing. I notice that my sweating gets worse when im nervous or stressed, but I also start sweating for no real reason as well. I get really ugly pit stains and its so embarrassing.
So, I bought Drysol from ebay and it arrived yesterday. I was so disappointed with the package. The container was smaller than I imagined and it wasn't the 'dab on' one, so it sucked to apply; I had to apply it with my fingers....eeew.
Yes, it stung. For about half an hour (i put it on about three hours before bed. I didn't want to be kept up by the stinging). It also got a little itchy. Overall it wasn't pleasant, but to me it wasn't unbearable because I was expecting it from the reviews I read.
Well, today i woke up took a shower, put on some of my Dove deodorant (I like how it smells, but it never stopped my sweating). I've been running around stressed at work today, wearing a button up with a tight t-shirt underneath. A couple of times, I've felt the wave of heat I get when I stress, which usually follows my sweating. But I haven't gotten any pit stains! No sweat! I cant believe its working already.
Ah im so freaking happy!!
Wow!!! A friend told me about this stuff! I am like all the other reviewers, always had sweaty pits( no oder) ruined clothes..ect... But this stopped it completely! I have itched like crazy...pretty severe but either I got use to it or something changed because it doesnt itch like anymore! I got it in perscription so not sure the cost but as I just read you can get it at the pharmacy! :) IF YOU SWEAT UNDER YOUR PITS.....DO THIS!!!! ...
When I was 12, I started sweating uncontrollably. It was so embarrasing. People used to literally stare. I couldn't ever wear white shirts, because they would be stained yellow almost right away. I went to the doctor and he recommended drysol. I used it (right after shaving, ahhhh!!) it really hurt. So I put it on at night and shave in the morning. Much better. I can now wear white shirts with no problem. I don't have gross sweat stains, I'm like normal people now. I would definitely recommend this for anyone that has hyperhydrosis or just sweats alot, it helps and doesn't hurt like having to get botox shots for your armpits!
Absolutely the best. I have tried so many products since I was a teenager and nothing worked. I got teased as a 12 year old about sweat stains and have been self-conscious ever since. This really and truly does eliminate the problem completely. I wish I had found it a long time ago but have it now and will never switch to anything else. I can now wear any clothes I want to and feel confident that I will stay dry - and bone dry at that. I can work out and sweat all over my body but not under my arms. It completely controls odor for me as well so I don't even need another product for that. It is worth every penny.
I have found that dabbing it on as the directions suggest is the best way to prevent itching and irritation. I have used Maxim and Certain Dri as well and not only didn't they work but caused so much painful itching that I had to stop using them. This is totally different. Yes, there is a bit of minor itching at night but after you shower in the morning and stay dry ALL DAY you quickly forget any discomfort. I don't use the saran wrap when I put it on. Just dab, let it dry and put on an old t-shirt to sleep.
For anyone who has suffered through the embarrassment of wet underarms give this a try. It will save you tons because you won't be ruining clothes. The improvement in my self esteem has been enormous and that is not an exaggeration. Try it.
This product is amazing, I never thought it will actually work, but I can assure you – it does.
I always had a problems with sweating, as it was already mentioned before, it’s very disgusting and embarrassing. The worst part was, when I was going clubbing, I always had to make sure I wore something black, or any other dark color, so sweat stains are not visible.
I found out about Drysol by accident. But it completely changed my life.
I wouldn’t care about using saran wrap, because I personally don't think it's necessary. And wash it off in the morning with soap. But you should use deodorant next morning, because it does not protect against odor.
This product is a miracle worker. I have been dealing with excessive sweating for years, and this has proven to be the best solution by far. I have tried almost every single anti-persperent on the market, including Certain Dry (CVS). To use, dab with a cotton swab twice a week (for me Wednesday & Sundays) at bedtime. Be careful not to shave before using. I avoid shaving on days when I apply the product, to be save. In fact, follow the directions that are included very carefully or look up the directions online. This product reduces sweatingt so much that I was delightfully surprised by how lovely I smelt after a 1 hour spin class! Brilliant. It reduces sweating, which for me was my major problem. I asked for it at the Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy, as it is kept back there and will not be found out on the shelves. You do not need a prescription to use this product which is great. The packaging is pretty clinical, and it is expensive, but for the results, it is worth it.
This product has changed my life, literally!!! continued >>
This is a miracle product for anyone who suffers with hyperhidrosis. It's one of those things that I wish I didn't have to use because the condition is so annoying/embarrassing but oh well. Since I do have to deal with it, I'm so grateful that Drysol exists.
None of the stuff I spent so much money on worked and the excessive sweating became so unbearable I finally had to go to the doctor about it. It's humiliating and uncomfortable. People always notice (that isn't an exaggeration.. they really do) and naturally think that it's gross which it is. It just isn't something that can be controlled sometimes no matter what product you use, how often you bathe etc. I was very finicky about taking two showers a day and using the most expensive product to try to fight it but to no avail.
Drysol for me, proved itself to be the only option as the expensive surgical treatment available I cannot afford. The prescription for this only costs me $10. I use it two nights a week and follow the directions down to the letter. It works amazingly well and has helped my confidence greatly.
