Don’t Stink Up The Summer

MT. KISCO, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Summer doesn’t have to stink.

To keep your pits from sweating up a storm this summer, Dr. David Bank, a dermatologist in Mt. Kisco, New York, says be wary of deodorants claiming to be “clinical strength.”

He says, “Unlike ‘prescription strength,’ there’s no technical definition of ‘clinical strength.’ It’s just a marketing and advertising term.”

Bank says many people turn to Botox to deal with hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating – but for the rest of the population, he’s got a simpler sweat solution.

If you don’t want to let a doctor prescribe something for your pits, Bank recommends Certain Dri, an over-the-counter antiperspirant made with aluminum chloride, the same sweat stopping solution in the prescription models.

To keep from sweating through your shirts, Bank recommends applying deodorant at night when you’re fully dry, letting it seep deep into your sweat ducts.
